Yulia Potapenko, programme graduate:
'This programme is unique since most of subjects at the beginning of studying and all the subjects later are held in English. Studying at HSE provides a lot of practical and theoretical knowledge but it will not let you forget that you are young, and it helps you to take everything from your life. I believe that no one university presents such opportunities to its students as HSE does. I was the head of the group for the 4 years and I actively participated in student life. I addressed conferences, became a scientific-research works competition winner, had an internship in an international company, attended lectures and masterclasses of Russian and international experts, won a 'Miss Management-2016' title, organized a party and I have never had any regrets that I had entered HSE! I want to continue studying here, so I already prepared to apply on English master programme "Management and Business Analytics".
Anna Alekseeva, programme graduate:
'At the beginning, I did not know what I wanted to do after graduation and I wanted to try the most possible number of spheres. I had internships in different departments of different companies, ranging from the banking industry to the hotel business. This experience let me shape my ideas for the foreseeable future in terms of professional development. Recently I moved to Moscow and found a job in the marketing department of one large cosmetic company. HSE – Saint Petersburg became for me a platform which let one give a try in completely different areas and creates a strong network of friends and professional contacts.'
