International Students Testimonials
Edoardo Alberti , Italy
I think everyone at least once in a lifetime should try to live in Russia
My name is Edoardo Alberti and I come from Italy. I am a first year master student at the Higher School of Economics Strategic Corporate Finance programme. First I visited HSE 2 years ago as an exchange student. Then I passed the GRE test and decided to apply to the Master’s programme to specialize in Strategic Corporate Finance. I like the programme because it effectively combines quantitative and qualitative skills what makes you successful in the job market in Russia and more broadly, in international sphere.
While the programme is taught in English, I can suggest you to refresh your Russian skill before coming here since if you want to be part of the society and interact with Russian people, you have to know a little bit of the language to understand what they are talking about.
Moscow is one of the best parts of my experience. It would sound cliché to you but it’s a very chaotic and dynamic town. It’s a good environment for your development. Is always challenges you and I think that’s everyone at least once in a lifetime should try to live in Russia for a while.
