The alumni of the Master Programme "Politics and Governance" (previous Programme title):
The Master's Programme on Politics & Governance at HSE has become crucial for my professional and personal development. I got an insight into the politics of Russia and other countries, started to understand the dynamics of political processes, involving various actors and institutions. Also I learnt a lot about the methodology of political science, techniques and methods to conduct elaborate studies that is competitive on the international level. This made me quite a qualified researcher and professional, and eventually helped me to join HSE as a lecturer. But staying at the university is not the only option, of course – all doors are open to become a civil servant, a politician, a journalist or a businessman"
Senior Lecturer, year 2015 Graduate
I entered Master’s Programme “Politics and Governance” in 2014. It was not my first year at HSE, nevertheless, I didn’t expect to get so much experience and new opportunities from studies as I got during these two years. My supervisor helped me to choose in what research field I want to work. While international office provided all necessary assistance for studying abroad. I got a chance to study at Helsinki University as an exchange student. I am thankful to my alma mater for unforgettable experience and great contribution to my future career. Now I am a PhD student at Queensland University of Technology, Australia"
