Case Study

Name: Tanja Tuš

Country of origin: Slovenia

Programme: BA Study of Entrepreneurship


I am glad that I made the decision to continue my education at GEA College of Entrepreneurship. The individual approach which exists between the lecturers and the students enabled me to exchange my experiences with others, in addition to which we spent a lot of time working on study cases.

The majority of the lecturers have been active in economics and had a lot of entrepreneurial experience. I was very enthusiastic about this and it gave me an opportunity to discuss things with them. I am convinced that such a way of working is an appropriate one for those who have decided to become entrepreneurs. It is extremely important to obtain knowledge, to evaluate it through practice and to experience it on your own projects.

I would like to thank to GEA College of Entrepreneurship which, besides my long-standing experience, gave me a new perspective as well as new methods of thinking. I owe my professors and my lecturers a great debt of thanks because they all gave me an opportunity to learn from their experiences and their immense knowledge and to use all this in practice.
