I'm originally from Siberia and I completed my undergraduate studies at Dostoevsky Omsk State University, Management, and my high school at Omsk Cadet corps, where I lived for three years.
My favorite things to do include playing the guitar, drums and piano, and spending time with my friends and family. I also really love traveling. I have visited 17 countries, and each trip is, first of all, an opportunity for new people to come into my life. Magic happens when people from different parts of the world unite in one company and establish long-term friendships. I am sure that this is the most incredible value of any travel. I want to thank Fuqua for giving me and all of us this opportunity.
One of the reasons why I came to Fuqua was that I've been an entrepreneur and loved business since the age of 14. I got my analytical and management skills when I was organizing concerts and festivals in Russia. My company became the market leader in less than two years, with a total number of customers of 10,000. Because I always wanted to have more extensive experience and cover larger markets, I learned how to interact and build relationships with stakeholders and manage multinational teams when I founded another project— in the field of construction consulting. My previous consulting experience taught me how to interact with various individual clients, mid-sized firms, and public company representatives. Helping to optimize the process of licensing construction companies, I advised on a full range of services: from general recommendations to the complete execution of a package of all necessary documents and further support of the company after obtaining the specific type of license.
It's hard to imagine where I would be today without Duke and Team Fuqua. This detail of my life has become so dear and essential. After all, without all this, I would be different. If you have any questions please let me know. I am always happy to help with any questions you may have about MMS program, Fuqua, or Durham!
