Student Internship Reports
Experiential learning, project based learning and internships are part of mandatory components at the Higher School of Economics both for masters’ and bachelor students. Students acquire professional skills and networks withit the field of their majors. Work study at HSE University, including RAs and TAs, can be counted as an internship. Today we talk about company internships with students. What is their experience, how they got there and how internships can help them in their future professional career
Nikita Popkov, first year student Agrarian Economics master program
Internship helped me see the processes in the agricultural sector from a different perspective. All my life I have been living in Moscow, and it is often difficult to understand the problems that arise in the field. Thanks to the internship, I better understand life in Russia in rural areas and the difficulties that companies face, both at the staff level and at the level of the company. If I continue to work in agrarian economics this experience will be instrumental to accurately assess the situation in the agricultural sector. This gives me a competitive advantage over other candidates who have only a very basic understanding of what is happening on the ground in agricultural companies.
Alfred Adamptey, second year student Strategic Corporate Finance master program
I had my internship at Ernst and Young Valuation and Advisory Services LLC. The opportunity was given to me by one of my project supervisors at HSE who is a Director in that company.
