Edoardo Alberti , Italy
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.
I think everyone at least once in a lifetime should try to live in Russia
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.
