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.
"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.
"Hard work! The best idea for your business is to start working. Just make small steps every day towards your dream".
Last May, Katerina Shipilova, the graduate of ‘Governance of Science, Technology and Innovation' Masters’ Programme, told us about her experience of launching a paper collection start-up ‘MK Service’. After the graduation Katerina launched one more project: Walk&Talk Tours – walking tours in English. This time we asked her about the differences of touristic business, development plans and some tips for starting you one enterprise.
"The main skill acquired at the Masters’ programme that helps me to move forward is the ability to process and analyze information".
I decided to look for my vocation by challenging myself and embracing the change. While doing my second year of the Master´s programme, I helped my friend and groupmate Katerina Shipilova to develop a startup company for paper collection MK Service. The startup represented an official partner of the youth festival for environment and sustainable development “VuzEcoFest” 2017. Being engaged in the environmental area made me realize that I want to proceed further in this direction. The main question is to understand what I want to do exactly. Here comes the fascinating part - my participation in the European Voluntary Service.
The ability to analyze trends is one of the key skills for those who are going to make management decisions in the field of science, technology and innovation. The students of HSE perfect it, studying theory, examining tools and cases. But it is known that knowledge and skills are much better learnt when resonating with the realities of life or with a relevant information agenda. Educational experience is shared by Dmitry Baryakin, a graduate of the master's programme of the ISSEK (HSE).
