Living abroad and studying at a foreign university (in this case, the HSE in Nizhny Novgorod) is a tremendous experience. It makes you continually grow and develop in every sense, and your consciousness expands all the time. It is a great opportunity to learn and understand the way people live in other countries and see a culture which is very different from your own. During our studies in Russia, not only did we experience the Russian student community, but also learned about this country from the inside. Our training involved lots of group assignments, which allowed us to meet and work with students from different cultures. I would recommend this programme to anybody seeking an international education and who wants to understand the specifics of doing business in different countries, as well as those aiming for a career in the global market.

In the course "Business strategies in global environment" we were working on our own projects in international subgroups. Together with fellow students from Russia and Italy, we developed an attractive idea for a startup and its business plan, and the professor Dr. Plotnikov introduced us to a Russian businessman, a potential investor for our project. I would never have thought that it was so easy to make useful business contacts and find an investor in a foreign country! Turns out that you just need to select the right master's program!

Before I came to Russia, I’d read about the unique Russian hospitality and kindness in books, but here I got to experience these qualities firsthand. The Russians welcomed us with interest and were happy to share information. Looking back, I can still feel this warmth — it was a great time! I especially want to mention the facilities at the Higher School of Economics — the classrooms were not too big and perfect for creating a productive environment for discussions.

The Global Business programme helps you learn about doing business in different countries. It is a great opportunity not only to learn about different approaches to doing business, but also to apply them in practice. It is an excellent opportunity to acquire some of the key competencies and skills required to build international business contacts. I believe that the knowledge gained here will open doors for us at leading international companies.
