Students of the HSE Campus in Perm Return from the University of Essex
The first students of the double-degree programme held by the HSE Perm and the University of Essex have completed the U.K. based part of their course.
Eight master's students from the HSE campus in Perm spent three months studying at the University of Essex.
Director of the HSE Perm campus Galina Volodina personally welcomed the pioneers back and thanked them for their contribution to the cooperation between the two universities:
'I am really proud of you for being very active students with excellent basic training,' she said.
Alexander Kozhevnikov, a second-year master's student commented on his experience at the University of Essex:
'It was like going beyond the usual borders--not in the ordinary sense of going to another country, but going beyond your own limits, your limited understanding of who you are and what you are capable of, and the prospects that lie ahead of you. Perhaps this is what we feel most grateful for in this programme.'
Claire Lucien, a student from France, graduated from the HSE in 2011. She is an alumna of the double degree Master’s programme ‘International Relations in Eurasia’, a joint project with the University of Kent. Today she works as an analyst in export finance at BNP Paribas in Moscow.
The application process for September 2013 is now open for the double diploma ‘Master in European Business’ at ESCP Europe and the International Institute of Administration and Business at HSE.
The HSE International Institute of Administration and Business (IIAB) is launching a new year-long Masters in European Business programme which is open for graduates of the HSE as well as other Russian and international graduates. Irina Maltseva, Director of the IIAB, told us about the programme’s details, advantages and the application procedure.
