Hrvatska – priča o jednom (ne)uspjehu

 

Udruga MBA Croatia organizira novo predavanje, 19.02.2020., u Kongresnom centru Forum Zagreb, Radnička 50, 1.kat, u 18 sati. Gost predavač je gospodin Davor Huić koji će pričati o tome kako je Hrvatska zapela u tranziciji, i kako izaći iz krize..

Više o predavanju:

Hrvatska je prije 30 godina bila jedna od najrazvijenijih zemalja (republika) bivšeg socijalističkog bloka, uz bok Slovenije i Češke. Danas je na začelju kolone, najsiromašnija zemlja EU osim Bugarske.
Postoji nekoliko razloga za to, a glavni je – prespora tranzicija na tržišno gospodarstvo. Hrvatska se jednostavno presporo mijenja. Iako je prilično jasno što bismo trebali napraviti da ubrzamo gospodarski rast, te se reforme jednostavno ne provode.
Jedan od razloga tome je i snažna antireformska koalicija političkih elita i društvenih skupina (sindikata javnih službi npr.), koja se opire bilo kakvim promjenama koje bi išle u smjeru povećanja konkurentnosti hrvatskog gospodarstva.

Pitanje je kako dalje? Kako provesti nužne reforme u zemlji u kojoj do sada nije postojala dovoljna politička volja (niti potpora javnosti) da se one provedu?

Davor Huić će opsiati neke scenarije raspleta političke krize obzirom na nadolzaće izbore, te sugerirati jedno moguće (najbolje?) rješenje.

Više o predavaču:

Davor Huić jedan je od osnivača i predsjednik Udruge poreznih obveznika Lipa. Lipa se u pet godina postojanja (osnovana 2014), nametnula kao važan glas u javnoj diskusiji, i jedan od rijetkih koji zagovara reformske politike – smanjenje javne potrošnje, reformu javne uprave, niže poreze, manje subvencija gubitašima, veću odgovornost u trošenju javnog novca, manje političkog zapošljavanja, i tako dalje. Lipa je kroz niz svojih akcija radila na osvještavanju birača o poreznoj presiji i netransparentnom trošenju javnog novca, želeći potaknuti građane na aktivnije sudjelovanje u kreiranju javnih politika, kako na nacionalnoj tako i n lokalnoj razini.
Davor Huić bivši je novinar, ratni dopisnik agencije Reuters iz Hrvatske i Bosne i Hercegovine (1991-95). Bio je ekonomski novinar i urednik Reutersa, pokrivajući teme iz ekonomije, financija i businessa (1996-2002). Bio je jedan od osnivača i izvršni urednik časopisa Poslovni tjednik (današnji Lider). Osnivač je Briefing d.o.o., kompanije za media intelligence, media monitoring, medijske analize i PR savjetovanje (2002-2010). Posljednjih 10 godina direktor je i glavni konzultant PR agencije Briefing komunikacije, specijalizirane za velike informacijske i edukacijske kampanje, korporativni PR, i politički marketing.
Bio je poseban savjetnik Predsjednika vlade RH Tihomira Oreškovića za unutarnju politiku (2016), te član Savjeta za ekonomska pitanja Predsjednice RH Kolinde Grabar-Kitarović. Često komentira političke i ekonomske (razvojne) teme u ključnim hrvatskim medijima, gost je javnih tribina, te povremeno piše za hrvatske Internet portale. Prije odlaska na dužnost u vladi RH pisao je kolumnu „Zdravorazumski“ u Večernjem listu.

“How Anglo-Saxon Universities Keep the Global Leadership Position in (MBA) Education”?

MBA Croatia is organizing a new lecture on December 17th at the Forum Zagreb Convention Center starting at 6 pm.

The topic of the lecture is:

“How Anglo-Saxon Universities Keep the Global Leadership Position in (MBA) Education”?

The first MBA was taught at Harvard University 110 years ago. A century later, Anglo-Saxon Schools still dominate the business school landscape. Is it because their scholars understand that the rate of return to schooling equates the net present value of lifetime earnings of the individual to the costs of education?

The lecture will address, based on the personal educator, researcher, and investor’s experience, this and other questions such as:

Why it’s not only in business education but also education in general that the Anglo-Saxon model keeps its global competitive advantage? How the relative value of skills, knowledge, and teaching methods explain the ROI in education? Is it only about bringing the theoretical and experiential side of education together? What is the role of problem-solving, case examples, team building, storytelling skills? What are they looking for, horizontal cross-cutting or vertical integrative skills? How they build the social capital out of social networks, and why is your network your net-worth? How AS universities teach to lead and develop teams? What is the connection between the concept of alumni and the famous Aesop fable? How are postmodern universities competing and collaborating with Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, IBM? How do the AS universities deal with the change that’s happening in various industries and sectors and thrive through their adaptive leadership? How do they provide the most value, the highest return on investment to those companies that are recruiting talent from all across the globe now? What are the leading trends and future of the (MBA) education? How can one university-related project skyrocket the Croatian economy while responding to the global human capital challenge?

About the lecturer:

Professor Stjepan Orešković is internationally known for his effective leadership and strategic acumen in healthcare, business, and science.

He is with his wife Manica the majority shareholder of the M+ Ulaganja MRUL Zagreb Stock Exchange-listed group.

Professor Oreskovic was involved in teaching, as well as in conducting joint educational, research and consulting projects with the Harvard University School of Medicine, London School of Economics and Political Science, Université Sorbonne Paris Cité, Università Bocconi, Johann Wolfgang Goethe Universität Frankfurt, and other leading universities.
