Country of origin: Russia

Studying for MSc OR & Management Science at LUMS

My time at Lancaster has been fantastic!

Marketing at Lancaster is not only an academically challenging and interesting course, but it  has also taught me many life skills, which couldn't be easily acquired elsewhere. Commercial awareness, critical thinking, teamwork and presentation skills have been constantly practised throughout the course.

I was also involved in various extracurricular activities such as being a course representative and Events Manager of Lancaster Entrepreneurs as well as participating in volunteering work, such as a Voltage Project. These extra-curricular activities helped me secure my Lancaster Award.

After completing my undergraduate degree, I decided stay on at Lancaster University to study for on the MSc Operational Research and Management Science.
