INTO HSE: your chance to get a discount or study for free at HSE University
When I started looking at different universities, programmes and departments, I contacted the Russian House (the Russian Center of Science and Culture) in Belgrade for recommendations. They said that in terms of economics, HSE University is the best, but that competition was very high.
I would like to continue studying and researching in the future. I’m not sure yet where I’d like to continue my research work, but HSE University is one of the frontrunners, of course.
Before enrolling in a master's programme, I did a preparatory programme, which was well organized. We could intensively and very quickly learn Russian and adapt to the new environment.
My choice to study at HSE University — Saint Petersburg was linked to its reputation in education and research. I analyzed the curricula of other programmes, considering the pros and cons and concluding that Master's in Comparative Politics of Eurasia was the best programme to advance my research.
It is only now after studying at HSE University that I have started to understand social statistics and have come to appreciate its applications in the social sciences. None of this would have possible if it weren't for the exceptionally brilliant, approachable, and responsive professors at HSE!
Master’s in Strategic Corporate Finance is a mixture of an academic degree and an MBA. Personally, I like the balance between practice and theory. It helps me to develop my skills, from working in a team to analytical and statistics inference skills.
