A strong desire to study economics in Russia brought me to SFedU, the best scientific center in the south of Russia. Not only did it give me an opportunity to get high-quality education in Russia, but it also taught me to put my knowledge to use. I found a lot of friends and learnt Russian here. Pursuing my postgraduate studies, I continue getting in-depth knowledge in my field, reading plenty of books in Russian.
