The Program alumni build their careers along various trajectories. Their first choice is usually private and state companies, both international and Russian ones, with a focus on international markets. Students’ skills blended with their knowledge of languages help them to build their careers effectively in such companies on different positions.
Another career avenue are being offered by international organizations and NGOs, both international ones working in Russia and Russian ones working abroad. Our alumni working there demonstrate not only their language skills but also impressive intellectual level and knowledge of political and social dynamics.
The third field of prospective occupation is media and journalism. In this field our students demonstrate their writing talents and experience in writing texts, articles, reports etc.
Another specific field of occupation is diplomatic service and academia. Our School does not position itself as a leading diplomatic and foreign service school, but as we see from the career trajectories of our alumni, our training turns out to be absolutely competitive in comparison with specialized diplomatic schools. Academia is not a common choice either fro our alumni, but this field offers a goof perspective for personal development and career growth as well, both at HSE and at other think tanks, universities and research centers.
