When I was researching programmes after finishing my architecture degree, I became really interested in HSE’s programme Prototyping Future Cities because it offered something I wanted to specialize in – the development of smart cities. The programme is definitely beneficial for me and I am able to learn quite a lot. It blends the expertise of professionals from different fields –architecture, design, business, and urban development – and gives us integrated knowledge and skills.

I come from an engineering background and I have been working with Engineering, R&D and the Analytics teams in telecommunications, so I needed a programme that would be an amalgam of business, informatics, and analytics. HSE is one of the finest schools in Russia and it is highly ranked on a number of university rankings, such as QS and the Times Higher Education. For that reason alone the programme in Big Data Systems was an obvious choice.

Studying at HSE makes me feel at home.

As an international student, I felt settled and welcomed from the very first day I arrived at HSE. So far, being part of the Public Policy and Political Analysis programme has been a life changing experience for me because of the immense store of knowledge it offers and also because of the positive impact on my own professional competence as a social scientist. Furthermore, the international environment allowed me to get a deeper understanding of socio-political issues around the globe.
