Meet Alexandra

Alexandra Chirkova is from Russia and completed her studies in communication in June 2011. Alexandra is a graduate from Moscow State University of Economics, Statistics and Informatics with a specialization in marketing.

Why did you choose to study in Sweden, at the University of Gothenburg and Master in Communication?

– In Sweden you have a great opportunity to take a master programme in English. Another advantage of the education is that it is performed in international groups, something I suppose is a good complement and platform for developing communicational skills in practice. The University of Gothenburg is one of the major universities in Sweden and also well-known in Europe.

– Studies, life and work experience has proved to me that communication is an essential part of life for everyone and for me as a marketer especially. Studying communication helps to advance the interaction with people in both everyday activities and professional operations. The master programme in communication covers all these fields. I chose Master in Communication to understand this interesting process better and improve my communication skills.

What do you think of the programme?

– First of all naturally there were academic studies – many theories, articles, methods, presentations, assignments and exams. But everything is interesting and lifelike. All academic material you can observe in life right after lecture. Then, and to my mind a more important part, this program gave me lots of experience mostly because of its international character and organization of the educational process. I have learned how effectively interact with different people from different countries and cultures, how to construct an efficient working process and achieve good results.

What are you doing today?

– After graduation I came back home and continue working in the field of marketing with new knowledge.
