Q & A
Are all the programs held on the Mokra Gora campus?Kristijan FurstnerMŠM has two campuses. We are convinced that our programs on the Mokra Gora campus are of the highest quality, provide the best results and provide guaranteed inspiration to those who indulge in the adventurous spirit of learning in this unique environment. MŠM also has a campus called “Vuk’s Endowment’ located in Belgrade, where the Belgrade-based programs take place.
Are the programs offered based on theoretical or practical knowledge?Kristijan FurstnerAll MŠM programs are designed based on the principle of 80% practical work and 20% theoretical knowledge, which we believe is the necessary conceptual basis for every manager.
Are the programs offered by the Mokra Gora School of Management accredited?Kristijan FurstnerYes. MŠM is the only private institution in Serbia that organizes the Academic Master of Business Administration (EMBA) in cooperation with the Faculty of Organizational Sciences of the University of Belgrade. Our EMBA is the only program of its kind in Serbia that is not subject to nostrification according to domestic legislation because it is in the system of formal education of the Republic of Serbia. Professional programs (OMP, GMP, EMBA) are accredited in accordance with the Law on Adult Education and have the status of JPOA for the subject programs. MŠM also has two ISSO standards, 9001: 2015 and ISSO 21001: 2018 for the provision of services in education and the organization of events in education.
Are there special offers for self-financing students?Kristijan FurstnerYes. We offer special conditions for students who are self-funded or a part of the academic community.
Are there users or organizations which were not satisfied with the service provided?Kristijan FurstnerWe live for seeing the users of our program so inspired. The average grade of our programs on an annual level is 4.6, on a scale of one to five. On the other hand, each program is always unique in its own right, because the participants always differ. We guarantee program quality in two ways. Firstly, for corporate programs, it is crucial to get a good description of the terms of reference in order to define, as precisely as possible, the needs of the organization and the participants themselves. That is why our subject lecturer, who is obliged to have a comprehensive understanding of the details of the project task, always comes to an agreement with the client. In addition, before the beginning of each program, the lecturer harmonizes the expectations of the students with the agenda and adjusts the curriculum with the practical expectations of the students during the program. Upon the programs completion, all students evaluate the program and the lecturers. Based on that, a report is compiled for the client and as a result, we manage to constantly improve our subject programs. In our work thus far, we have not experienced a scenario in which a client asked for a refund because he/she was not satisfied with the service provided.
Can MŠM help you find a job?Kristijan FurstnerMŠM does not handle ‘executive search’ activities. What we do is take care of our strategic partners and their talents. For individual programs, such as GMP and EMBA, we provide the most gifted students with connections within the business community.
Do you offer scholarships for those who would like to go to school but do not have the funds, or company support?Kristijan FurstnerYes. MŠM offers the possibility of scholarships for those students who demonstrate excellence within their work but do not have the financial means to finance their education on their own, or within their organization.
Does Mokrogorska deal with other possible training exercises, besides those listed in the programs?Kristijan FurstnerMokrogorska has more than 50 different training programs for executive fields that are needed in organizations. Listening to the needs of the business community, we participate in the development of the programs, training, certification, and re-training for various professions. A network of partners from all over Serbia helps us achieve this.
