Why did you choose to study this programme?

I was always interested in fundamentally different educational fields, from biology to literature, and I couldn’t decide exactly, what I wanted to pursue.

I originally decided to try myself in journalism, then made the switch to studying genetics, and finally, I understood that I most wanted to find something that would integrate as many fields of study as possible.

I explored Business as the unique synergy of numerous theoretical and practical spheres of knowledge, which have significantly supported me as a specialist, and as an individual.

In the 21st century, when information is the most important thing to invest in, business people occupy a unique position as ones who combine numerous theoretical and practical forms of skills to thrive in an increasingly competitive global environment.

Why Estonia?

For me, Estonia is a perfect eclectic mixture of European and Russian cultures.

Life here is not completely different in terms of typical mentalities and provides a high level of comfort with a lot of opportunities to support growth and development for all the social categories, even for foreigners. As a result, I don`t feel lost in Estonian culture.

The main benefit to life in Estonia stems from who you are as a person. If you have ambitions and working potential, you definitely will find projects and events, which will be helpful to satisfy all of your educational and self-expressive desires.
