Bratislava – the mirror in which you see who you are and what you want to be

Prof. Dimitrinka Kamenova visited the Comenius University in Bratislava during her Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Training

I arrived at 7 am on May 23, 2022 in Mlinske Nivy to start my Erasmus + mobility at the Faculty of Management of Jan Comenius University in Bratislava. Two young men were cleaning the metal hardware of the large columns in the beautiful, huge building so early, even though it was amazingly clean. I approached. It was fantastic because I saw myself after such a long time, inscribed in the global picture of the spectacular building, designed to travel around the world! I felt like a man, a teacher and a scientist, belonging to the world!

The city of Devin, the historical sights, the Old Town, the museums and the architectural masterpieces of Bratislava in a brilliant combination with modern construction, cleanliness and metropolitan order really make you feel like a modern person. I am happy that through the University of Bratislava I returned to the work of Jan Comenius to realize how many more lessons we have to learn from his Great Didactics!

My colleagues and students from the Faculty of Management confirmed this experience in our meetings, in the exchange of experience and the exchange of gifts. Smiling, dedicated to knowledge, ready to cooperate, they turn work into pleasure – one of the modern trends in management, which makes them leaders in the workplace!

My Slovak colleagues and students have revealed to me what I want to be after my meetings with them – even more persistent, striving for professionalism in my work with my students and dedicated to my research interests in global management! I thank them from the bottom of my heart for the strength they gave me to move forward!
