Mgr. Martin Múčka

My name is Martin Múčka. I graduated at the Department of Language Pedagogy and Intercultural Studies in 2013.

After my graduation I worked in IBM Slovakia in Bratislava as Business Sales Specialist for HW and SW for CEE. I was responsible for:

  • Bid management, Lead management
  • Coverage of contract end-to-end processes (negotiations, quotes, proposals, contract registration and terminations, contract amendments)
  • Multivendor, ServicePac and technical solution for distributors
  • IBM Team Leadship Academy certificate
  • Focal point of Lenovo transformation project
  • Consultation of internal IBM processes and apps execution

At present I am employed in the company Reckitt Benckiser in Prague, Czech Republic as business Sales Specialist for OTC for CZ and SK and I am involved in:

  • Reporting (PowerBI, Excel) of OTC market
  • Analyses of CZ and SK Pharma market development
  • CRM key user
  • Focal point for distributors (Sales planning, stocks, trade plan)
  • Business support of KAMs

What have I gained from university study?

  • Analytical and out-of-the-box thinking
  • Fast learning and memorizing of completely new topics
  • Independence, self-criticism, humility, teamwork approach (the one-man-show is not working anymore in most companies)

What would I change?

  • I would definitely attend more elective subjects related to business purposes (e.g. ICT, Excel for advanced users, another language (probably German language), marketing, presentation skills (huge difference to present a presentation in front of our class vs. CEO/CFO and actually justify your opinion).

What would I recommend to our students?

  • Travel a lot (flight tickets for €5? Just a dream 10 years ago!)
  • Erasmus+
  • Don’t spend your time at university just to prolong your youth (spend your time wise guys).
