Degree: Engineering; Business and Management

‘The IB programme taught me to be more organised, to work in a team, to develop knowledge and skills in communication with people from all over the world. It built my personality. The teachers at Zlatarski not only taught us, but showed us the important things. Together we learned to be friends, to help each other, to have a personal opinion, to pursue our goals, to be unique and different. Owing to my education in the IB programme, I had the opportunity to get two offers from the worlds top universities – Cambridge University and California Institute of Technology.’
