More about the initiative

The “Manager for a Day” initiative is designed to provide high-school and university students with the opportunity to experience the personal and academic demands of daily business operations. Furthermore, Manager for a Day promotes experiential student learning and fosters productive relationships among business, education and the community. The initiative enjoys great success all over the world. Each year businessmen, politicians and leaders from all walks of life serve as role models to young people by transferring their knowledge and practical experience through a partnership with students.

In 2008, over 220 state institutions and leading Bulgarian and international companies and non-government organizations took part in “Manager for a Day” giving chance to over 1000 students from language, mathematics and professional High schools from all over the country for an excellent start in their future professional career. Young “managers for a day” in previous editions of the initiative have been more than 5000 students with mentors from over 400 different companies and institutions in Bulgaria.

During the day of Manager for a Day in Sofia, around 500 students and top-level managers gather at an opening ceremony in the morning. They are to spend the day together and come back at the evening to share their experience from the busy business day. A short – up to 20 minutes – film is being produced during the day to show what happened to some of the participants at their host companies.
