My time here has been nothing short of extraordinary, I believe the beautiful city of Bratislava has become a second home to me, filled with rich history, vibrant culture, and warm, welcoming people. I've had the privilege of exploring its charming streets, tasting its delicious cuisine, and immersing myself in its unique atmosphere. I also want to extend my deepest appreciation to the International Office staff, especially Erika and Romana. Their unwavering support, guidance, and hospitality have made my journey here exceptionally smooth and enjoyable. From helping me navigate administrative procedures to providing valuable insights into life in Bratislava. I am grateful for the diverse and inclusive environment that the university fosters. As I prepare to depart from this wonderful city and university, I want to thank each and every member of the Comenius University community for making my time here so memorable. I will carry the knowledge, experiences, and friendships I've gained here with me throughout my life. Thank you, Bratislava, and thank you, Comenius University, for an incredible chapter in my academic journey.

Mr Francisco Picado was very thankful after his visit at Comenius, expresed by his own words:
“I must thank Comenius University and to Mr. Olšavský for giving me the opportunity to teach abroad and, in particular,  I´ve to thank you for taking up your classroom space in order to do so and I expect the students stay satisfied. I would also like to thank you the way in which you welcomed me, and I hope to be able to retribute when your academics visit Portugal. It was a long and tiring but excellent day visiting Bratislava. The old town area is truly fascinating and it's easy to lose hours there without noticing time passing. Also your cheese is  amazing”

Mrs. Dimitrina Kamenova - Professor from Varna University of Management, Department of Modern Education - Varna, Bulgaria

By her own words:

“Bratislava - the mirror in which you see who you are and what you want to be. I arrived at 7 am on May 23, 2022 in Mlynské 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 am impressed by your Turkish trainee Mr. Ilayda Sarigul’s intelligence, the warmth in the attitude towards us, the playfulness of the emotions! Her radiance is life! I do not know what her name means, but if I have to choose a metaphor, it is joyful. I thank all of them from the bottom of my heart for the strength they gave me to move forward!“

Back in Bratislava for teaching for the Master students, for a lecture about how to finance investments. A good way to promote sustainable finance, ESG criteria, and socially responsible investing (SRI)

For the last 16 years, I have been teaching every year at the Faculty of Management, Comenius University in Bratislava with great pleasure in the French-speaking section. A good way to contribute to the Francophonie.

I have now had good a very good relationship for such a long time, and I am happy to meet people again.

During the last 2 years, my lectures were only online; this year, it was hybrid : online and face to face. Challenges to wake up and to check how the course is understood and assimilated, making videos to present other financial markets (Taiwan, Prague, Brussels, Frankfurt, Milano..): so many ways to develop the soft skills, knowledge in French and in Finance.

So impressed by the changes since my first visit in 2006, in the city, the University, and in the way of teaching. I still have in mind my first visit in February 2006, and please to see that the Dean and I are still there, even if were are a bit older
