Global Business: Unique Education in an International Environment
A grand opening for the third enrolment of master’s students in Global Business took place at the HSE campus in Nizhny Novgorod. The master’s programme is aimed at training managers with professional, social, and personal competencies needed for working in the global economy.
The master’s programme in Global Business was launched at the HSE campus in Nizhny Novgorod in 2012. Partner universities, Johannes Kepler University of Linz (Austria), University of Bergamo (Italy), and HSE in Nizhny Novgorod joined forces to offer students the opportunity to get experience of work and education in the world’s leading economic regions. Each year, the programme becomes better known both in Russia and internationally.
'The classical education in the partner universities means many hours of theory and much less practice. We offered a practical aspect, and they took it eagerly. Of course, we have differences in the general model of teaching. HSE has many hours in class, many hours for students to consult teachers, and comparatively less independent work. In Europe, the main focus is made on independent study or team work, but out of class. We had to get used to this difference in formats. But this is our third enrolment, and we can say that we have more or less adjusted to each other,' says Mikhail Plotnikov, Leading Lecturer at the master’s programme in Global Business.
The grand opening of the master’s programme in Global Business took place at the HSE campus in Nizhny Novgorod. The evening allowed the international students, the lecturers, and the guests to relax in the informal atmosphere of an international party.
Johannes Schobesberger, master’s programme in Global Business (Austria)
I’m very interested in looking at how students learn in other universities, I’m keen to learn more about Italy and Russia and the specifics of management in these countries. I hope to establish useful business contacts, and to understand Russian culture, both national and business.
Enrico Ubiali, master’s programme in Global Business (Italy)
My friends and colleagues graduated from this master’s programme last year. Their feedback was positive. They liked the curriculum; the topics they studied were very interesting and useful, and the experience of living in various countries was unique and essential. That’s why when I was choosing a programme for further studies, I decided to apply for Global Business, in order to experience all those things myself.
Svetlana Roganova, master’s programme in Global Business (Russia)
I met my international classmates and I can say that I’m now immersed in the international community. I applied for Global Business because, when you grow up in a family of entrepreneurs, you feel part of the business community anyway. I have some prospects for work in an international company and I have my own business, and hence the experience I get here will be very important for my future career.
