“Down the memory lane…..I remember
Hello! I am Evgeniya Strizakova. I finished my Master’s programme in Project management in the year 2017. I was selected as one of the best students of RANEPA. I graduated with a distinction. I would like to share some good news with you all about my life and me. I am a key account manager in a multinational company Hasbro, happily married with a beautiful small daughter who is five months old.
RANEPA was just as a second home and our Project Management program had the essence of international traditions and culture, which were transmitted to the students, kept us engaged and unified. I remember the joint classes, New Year celebrations etc. The content of the courses always had team presentation, which was great. I still remember our Consultancy project. We would discuss a range of topics, and I found myself often having to re-evaluate a previously held opinion or stance. This module was very helpful for me while getting my first job at MARS.
I am grateful to all my teachers for the ways they pushed me, encouraged me, and never appeased me with a quick answer. I am grateful for their honesty, direct communication, and friendly spirit.
We all valued a bonded campus community that preserve connections with individuals beyond their time as students of the university. I have some memories of humour and sometimes fear in the classroom to get something wrong.
Dr. Mittra and Dr. Ross were always sympathetic towards the students and were able to diagnose the reasons for difficulties they had in the classroom. They were very strict too.
I often miss my golden days at the university, that exciting community, free student discounts, library access and cultural events that made our university unique and dynamic. Our program Project Management taught me to be analytical, critical and structured. I can face the challenges of the new world.
Mitali and Margarita, lots of love to you from your bouncy naughty Zenya, Ivan (alumni of the program and my husband) and my little Leya.
Miss you all…”
