Martin Manchev has a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Master's Degree in Financial Management. For 5 years he gained experience and climbed the career ladder, but at some point he realized this was not his calling. He decided to pursue a career in the IT sector, which provides a more dynamic work environment and more opportunities for professional development.
Programming was just a hobby for Vasil Dininski. He studied “International Economic Relations” at the University of National and World Economy.

There is more behind the avalanche-kind of success than just a good business model and a few smart ideas. You feel this the moment you enter the company's headquarters in Sofia's "Mladost" suburb.

More than 30% of all ICT specialists in Bulgaria are women, according to Eurostat. This is the story of two of them - Maria and Iskra. They changed their careers and joined the IT industry with the help of Telerik Academy. “For the last 10 years, there is a clear upward trend for more women joining and graduating our Academy,” shared our CEO Alexandra Mechkova for BTV.
In 2017 Telerik Academy spun off from Telerik into an independent tech-ed organization and a true partner to all IT companies. As a result, the Academy went through changes.

Almost all of Telerik Academy graduates (98%) successfully start a career in the IT industry. More than half of them (58%) receive remunerations higher than the ones in the software industry and for 80% their salaries are higher than the average for the country.
97% of the Telerik Academy Alpha graduates today live and work in Bulgaria. Nearly 70% start working in IT in less than 2 months from their studies’ end, followed soon after by the rest. Almost all are very happy with their current living standard.
"I see Telerik Academy as an inseparable part of the ecosystem. If I go back to Telerik, our company couldn’t have expanded so dynamically and achieved such results, if we didn’t have the opportunity to grow in a predictable and planned way, with talent that entered the organization right when we wanted it. There is no other existing organization on the market that can give such a controlled inflow of talent," Telerik Academy Co-founder Boyko Iaramov.
