Olga Korliakova from Russia sat down with us to share her experience while taking her Global MBA, specialising in investment banking, online with London School of Business & Finance.
My name is Olga Korliakova. I’m from Russia.
Studying online is a really amazing opportunity to study with foreign teachers, to communicate with people all around the world but at the same be at your home, and to be able to work and study at the same time.
On my first module, I was a little bit modest and shy to write to teachers or to students. I really advise to all students to communicate with each other. They are so open-minded, and they make our education easier. The teachers are really amazing and they are so helpful.
Of course, the main obstacle is our time and our priorities. Everybody has the same time in a day, 24 hours. It’s up to us how to spend this time. You have to refuse meetings, and maybe sometimes a walk to the cinema or something else, but you know you will be rewarded at the end.
I’m sure in the future my MBA will play a very important role. All of the heads of our departments in banks, and some people who have moved up the career ladder, have an MBA.
Due to studying online, I am able to work for myself, and at the same time to get an incredible education. It’s really very important to have such an inter-cultural, international education. It’s really unforgettable.
