During the last company this year visit Global Business students paid a visit to the DHL branch in Bergamo, Italy. As usual we asked one of our students to share their thoughts afterwards.
This time the visit to the company for students was of particular importance: this group of students will spend the next 2 months in Italy working on a project for this company.
The Global Business programme not only orients its students towards mastering the theoretical background on doing international and global business but also gives opportunity to learn different international business models firsthand through visiting large international companies and networking with the top-management.
We wrote about Anna Zotova, already our graduate by now, just recently describing how she continued her studies in Austria during the second year of the programme and got a few internships at Austrian companies. This article will follow Anna on the new turn in her career abroad.
This year there was even more importance attached to the university ball, as JKU celebrated its 50 th anniversary in 2017. A lot of graduates of the university were present at the ball, among them being the graduates of the last year’s Global Business programme, who either stayed in Austria to continue their education/work or came from their home countries to meet their friends and professors. For the current Global Business students it was an excellent opportunity to meet their elder peers in this informal setting in order to learn about their professional life after the programme and to project their own ways into the future, be it learning or work patterns.
They say it is impossible to succeed, if you spread yourself too thin and engage in too many activities at a time. Anton Chernotalov's example proves quite the contrary. He is the founder of many a company and runs them simultaneously. He was invited to deliver a guest lecture within the 'Russian Business Context' course and told the Global Business students about his background and current business projects.
Global Business program hosted a curious speaker - a Russian entrepreneur successfully operating his business in the Philippines. Mr Kandaurov shared his experience of global business and gave advice to our students.

The international modules of the master’s programme in Global Business have come to an end, and students have defended their projects, which they worked on for several months, at the University of Bergamo, Italy. Representatives of companies for whom the students prepared their projects as well as the representatives of three partner universities — Johannes Kepler University Linz (Austria), the University of Bergamo (Italy) and HSE (Russia) — all took part in the event.
