Our students say
I am 34 years old, I have a family, two children and a job. I can only study online. At the beginning of 2022, I found out about the HSE online master’s programme, looked at the programme and the faculty. After an online meeting with Irina Vasilievna Ivashkovskaya, I applied straight away.

I have a sports education, but currently I am working with finance. There were extra courses in summer, they helped me get into the learning process quicker.
Artyom Gordeev
Graduate, Master of Business Analytics
I am an internal auditor and sustainability ambassador at Gazprombank. I chose the online training programme because it is the only possible format for me: I work during the day and I am a mum in the evening. I have always dreamed of studying at the Higher School of Economics, but I didn’t understand how to combine studying with my excessive workload. On this programme, I can manage!

I am grateful to our teachers for their 24/7 communication and case discussions, and I am glad to get to know my classmates who are all doing a great job because they work, study,
