MESCI-Development Economics and International Cooperation

Master in
Development Economics and
International Cooperation

Alumni 2012/2013



I’m 25 and I’m from Moscow, Russia. I graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University, the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Area Studies, in 2009. As my major I picked Regional Studies and International Relations with the special focus on Italy. I liked my University bachelor’s course, but gradually I realized I would like to connect my professional future with economics. After graduation I worked in different spheres, including banking and trade. I succeeded in finding a job at the bank “Intesa”, the Russian subsidiary bank of the famous group “Intesa Sanpaolo”. Then I worked as an assistant of the import manager at the Russian company “AgroEco”, that practiced wholesale trade of fruit and vegetables, imported them from different countries all over the world. I managed to perform well a wide range of responsibilities I had to cope with, however, I felt that I lacked knowledge in economics. I wish to work in a Russian company dealing with foreign economic activity and for this reason I have a deep interest in studying international cooperation as well. This is why I choose the MESCI Master program in such a large and dynamic educational institution as “Tor Vergata”.
