During his visit to UP FM, he lectured on Contemporary entrepreneurial stories in the Academic Bachelor’s programme in Management. Dr. Miljenović wrote about his experience as follows:
»This year I had the opportunity to teach as a visiting professor at the Faculty of Management in Koper. An international educational environment is always encouraging, and I had the great opportunity to work again with students from different countries, including France, Macedonia, Italy, Serbia, Russia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro. This international spread reflects the current state of global entrepreneurship, especially in the class of ˝Contemporary Topics in Entrepreneurship˝. There are really many current topics in global entrepreneurship such as the development of AI and IT, eco-energy, business and ecology, and social entrepreneurship. International classes provide a broad range of student experiences that are prerequisites for entrepreneurial creativity in solving practical business cases. Discussions based on business cases and examples provide a pool for new ideas and solutions that students can use in their education and future workplace. The Faculty of Management in Koper was again a place of creativity for the students and me as a teacher, and I hope we will have the opportunity to do the same again.«
