‘The Setl Group Holding is a major employer with a forward-looking approach and progressive views. Therefore, we are interested in ensuring that the professional training of future personnel meets the modern requirements of the labor market.

Our cooperation with the HSE is aimed at developing the practical knowledge and applied competencies of students.

Our holding is ready to become a platform for the development of young professionals. The guys have the opportunity to have an industrial and undergraduate practice with us, to find practical application of the acquired knowledge in their field of study, to see and feel the real work process’.

Anna Kotova, Director of the Career Development Center at HSE - St. Petersburg

‘If we talk about case championships in general, then this is a great opportunity to put into practice the knowledge gained at the university. This is how it happens: often the cases that participants are offered to solve are the real tasks of companies. They are interdisciplinary, respectively, to solve them, it is not enough just to have knowledge in a particular discipline. The development of a product promotion strategy should be supported by financial calculations and the legal aspects of certain tools.

Hence, another plus from participating in case championships is the ability to work in a team. In addition, the case championship allows you to show your knowledge not only to HR, but immediately to a person from the business - for example, the head of a particular department. And then he can recommend you as a candidate for an open position. Case championships in general are often used by companies precisely as a way to form a talent pool’.
