MSc Strategic Management
Class of 2015
from MGIMO University
Internship experience as a Business Analyst for BAT Russia
Plunging into case studies in diverse domains has expanded my views and enhanced my analytical skills as well as presentation expertise.
For my bachelor degree I studied International Economic Relations with a specialization in Energy Policy and Diplomacy in Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO University). I did an internship at BAT-Russia in the Transport department where I was responsible for fuel consumption auditing and controlled vehicle maintenance expenses.
A first class business education
I chose HEC Paris because I found here the program that suited best my requirements and I was sure that I would get a first-class quality education. The MSc in Strategic management attracted me by its perfect mix of theory and practice. I liked the structure of the program, which provides a global view on strategy. I liked the fact that for the second semester we had elective courses so I could choose courses that particularly suited my tastes, as well as the courses I could leverage on in my future professional life. I also appreciated the possibility to work on a true consulting project as a part of our program.
For me the most interesting aspect of the program was the possibility of plunging into the world of case studies in diverse domains while having profound theoretical insights. This expanded my view and enhanced my analytical skills as well as presentation expertise. Another benefit is the possibility to interact with real professionals, both academics and practitioners. The possibility to work on a real consulting project is great opportunity to get acquainted with the job.
I would really like to emphasize that HEC Paris does not only give high quality knowledge, it also helps you become a young professional with all the social skills that one needs to be successful in his career.
I am very grateful to all the professors and all the staff for the skills that I have acquired and the experience I have had here.
