On October 19, 2019, a seminar was organized at Yandex as part of the Mikhail Gershman’s course “Managing Creativity and Innovation”. It was led by Ekaterina Shor, Senior Key Accounts Development Manager, graduate of the Master’s Programme “Governance of Science, Technology and Innovation”.
Internship experience at OECD: think-tank with its global purpose to build "better policies for better lives"
I learnt about the internship through our Master’s program website and immediately became interested. OECD is a well-known ‘think-tank’. It is an international organization with a goal to build ‘better policies for better lives’. Being a unique center for knowledge creation and share of best-practices, the organization works to establish norms and find evidence-based solutions to a range of socio-economic and environmental challenges the humanity is currently facing. I was greatly inspired by the immense work the Organisation does to create and share knowledge throughout the societies, and I wanted to be part of it.
On December 4, 2018, 2nd year students of the ISSEK master’s programme “Governance of STI” visited Yandex headquarters – that was the Seminar “Corporate Culture, encouraging creativity and innovation” within the course by Mikhail Gershman “Managing Creativity and Innovation”. The visit was organized with the help of Ekaterina Shor – a 2018-year graduate of the master’s programme and an employee at Yandex.
"This way of teaching with great involvement of the students while learning from each other fits very well with me"
Maxim Sinnema, International Business Student from the Avans University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands, attending the Higher School of Economics in Moscow as a free mover for the fall semester of 2018, is sharing his feedback on the courses of the programme.
"Companies compete for getting smartest minds, especially among students from the best universities like TU Berlin."
Most of those travelling to Berlin do not like the city, because there is not so much architectural heritage or historical attractions besides Reichstag and the Wall. After living there for a year there is the feeling that Berlin is not about sightseeing but about the vibe, feeling of freedom and cosmopolitanism, street art and techno music.
"Being a part of this programme implies knowing something that only really a tiny percentage of people on the globe know".
Master’s programme held 3 rd graduation ceremony for the students receiving their degrees. Totally 35 graduates were honored to obtain their master’s diplomas, with 9 students as participants of the double degree programme with TU Berlin. The Academic supervisor of the programme Dirk Meissner, ISSEK Deputy Director Alexander Sokolov, Head of the Department for Economy and Science from the German Embassy Thomas Graf and Coordinator of the Double Degree programme from TUB Jan Kratzer congratulated the master’s students, expressed their wishes for the future endeavors and encouraged to take advantage of all further challenges through the prism of knowledge acquired at the programme.
HSE ISSEK and the College of Engineering at Seoul National University have signed an agreement for a double degree programme which involves the HSE’s Master Programme in Governance of Science, Technology and Innovation and the ‘Technology Management Economics and Policy’ (TEMEP) at the College of Engineering of Seoul National University.
We spent about 10 months in Germany, the first two semesters of the Double Degree Master's Program of the Higher School of Economics and the Technische Universität Berlin (TUB). We would like to tell you about the program and about our first year in Berlin in particular. Our education is dedicated to innovation studies. We learn to conduct research of the infrastructure of innovation, economic policy and business support measures, technology development, technology management in large and small companies and high-tech entrepreneurship. The program in Berlin is called Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship, the program in Moscow is Governance of Science, Technology and Innovation. The programs of partner universities successfully complement each other, but there are more reasons to choose the Double Degree apart from coordinating study plans.
