Looking back on your career, what was the most important decision you made (or didn't make) regarding your career path?

My most important decision, after finishing my medical studies in Athens, was to move to Germany, where I had the opportunity to broaden my mind with excellent training, meeting brilliant people from all over the world.

What do you believe recent graduates should keep in mind as they start out their careers?

The career path is a marathon. They have to remain focused, in order to achieve their goals and not get disappointed if they face difficulties of any kind.

What made you choose ALBA for your graduate studies?

ALBA is a business school that was created by the market for the market. As a medical doctor and entrepreneur at the same time, I took advantage of developing my skills in business administration and learning how other industries work and by exchanging my experience with my colleagues.
