In January 2019, the graduate of the first Global Business intake, Irina Tolkacheva, received her second master's degree in Global Business, this time from Johannes Kepler University in Linz. Irina essentially completed the double degree program before it was officially launched. Thanks to the fact that this academic year HSE and JKU signed a double degree agreement we did our best to solve most of the issues our students could encounter otherwise. In this interview Irina spoke to us about her journey to her Master of Science in Austria.
On October, 8 the master’s programme opening ceremony was held for all the participating students and guests. This year the international group of students consists of 24 young ambitious people from Russia, Austria, Italy, India, Pakistan, Egypt, and France.
We sat down to talk to our international student from India how he made the decision to apply for the Global Business master's programme, what the process was like and what he expects to achieve after graduation.
During the last company this year visit Global Business students paid a visit to the DHL branch in Bergamo, Italy. As usual we asked one of our students to share their thoughts afterwards.
This time the visit to the company for students was of particular importance: this group of students will spend the next 2 months in Italy working on a project for this company.
TED is an intellectual conference which aims at spreading unique ideas. The topics vary from science, art, design, politics, culture, business,global challenges, and technology to entertainment. TEDx project allows people from different countries, cities, Universities, communities to organize indipendent TED-style events. Anastasiya Polozova, Global Business graduate, year 2015, is going to be the first person in Nizhny Novgorod to host this event.
The Global Business programme not only orients its students towards mastering the theoretical background on doing international and global business but also gives opportunity to learn different international business models firsthand through visiting large international companies and networking with the top-management.
We wrote about Anna Zotova, already our graduate by now, just recently describing how she continued her studies in Austria during the second year of the programme and got a few internships at Austrian companies. This article will follow Anna on the new turn in her career abroad.
This year there was even more importance attached to the university ball, as JKU celebrated its 50 th anniversary in 2017. A lot of graduates of the university were present at the ball, among them being the graduates of the last year’s Global Business programme, who either stayed in Austria to continue their education/work or came from their home countries to meet their friends and professors. For the current Global Business students it was an excellent opportunity to meet their elder peers in this informal setting in order to learn about their professional life after the programme and to project their own ways into the future, be it learning or work patterns.
Professor Rogova, Head of Finance department at HSE S.Petersburg, paid GB students in Nizhny Novgorod a by-now-traditional visit as she delivered the course she teaches in the programme, ‘International Finance’.
