Bachelor's Degree in Economics, Lomonosov Moscow State University
Russian, English, French
My name is Nadezda Timoshenko, I am from Russia and I am a student of the Master in Data Sciences & Business Analytics program (M2/1-year).
Before joining ESSEC I had many thoughts about the career path that I should take. Back in school I was passionate about maths, physics and basic computer science. However, lost in doubts about the tech world, I decided to pursue a degree in Economics at Lomonosov Moscow State University. Soon, I realised that I am more interested in Statistics and Econometrics rather than in Economics so I decided to find the way to return back to the world of digital.
After graduating, I had the opportunity to work for 1.5 years in big-four consulting firms and to see the huge variety of business structures and their approach towards digitisation. That experience was another nudge for me to choose a DSBA program and to find my way to the world of best IT companies.
As this DSBA program is ranked 3rd in the world and 1st in Europe, it was my obvious first choice and a dream to be accepted. But all the status and recognition aside, I was also captivated by the program’s structure as it covered not only tech-oriented subjects such as Machine Learning or Big Data Analysis, but also business and management courses. Moreover, as this Master is a joint program between ESSEC & CentraleSupélec, there is a unique opportunity to learn from its great professors and to engage in student life of one of the top engineering schools.
I would highly recommend choosing this program to anyone who is interested in the new digital world. I know how difficult the choosing of a program can be, so if you have any questions or doubts, I will be happy to help you: just ask!
