This Master taught me how to complete big and complex projects using a systematic approach and a good research, while delegating tasks within a team.
"I have always been a very rational person when it goes to decisions related to personal and professional development. After I completed my Specialist’s programme in Journalism with Honours at Lomonosov Moscow State University that belongs to 100 top worldwide, I started to think of the next best opportunity for my future. I knew, I could continue working in the professional field, as I was an editor at that moment, but the charming idea of going abroad seemed to be the better option. First, I wanted to study Media from the business perspective, since I already discovered it from editorial and journalistic sides. Secondly, that time I had my own Internet start-up and this Master’s programme seemed to fit well with my ambition of creating a brand-new business in Media. Last, but not least, living in another country, discovering new cultures and observing habits of such a diversity of people were the factors that I knew I would benefit from. I was never wrong with that decision. This Master challenged me in so many ways and now looking back at that time, I can say I took the best from it and it contributed to my professional development.
This Master taught me how to manage an enormous amount of work within a limited period of time. That capability of dealing with many tasks simultaneously and managing your working hours in balance with personal time is a very good combination for any types of work. Additionally, this Master taught me how to complete big and complex projects using a systematic approach and a good research, while delegating tasks within a team. That is a very functional component for my position, as I work with many stakeholders and business parties. And, of course, the knowledge I gained at this Master is very useful. Our lectures and teaching staff provided examples and cases of the very recent campaigns, which is very important when you study Media, as you know – it changes very fast with the development of modern technologies."
