What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?
The educational structure in Romania is different to here, so we were studying everything up to University. I then decided to go for a career in management. I made the best choice!
What is your education to date?
All my studies were in Romania from primary school until finishing with the Diploma in Management in Commerce and Tourism. In total I studied 16 years which included all subjects and also 12 years in French.
After that I have taken courses as part of McDonald's Management Development Programme, the most recent one was in Situational Leadership which has enhanced my management skills.
What aspects of your education have proven most important for your job?
Of course the Diploma in Management. Also all courses done were at the right time to help me to build my knowledge and experience which have helped me achieve promotion.
Have you undertaken, or do you plan to undertake any further training as part of your job?
Yes. And if there are no more internal courses available, the Company offers you the choice of external courses that I can benefit from. I intend to do the Dale Carnegie leadership course next.
