Masters graduation ceremony in Åbo Akademi

Master’s degree and other academic achievements

In June 2014 I successfully completed my second graduate degree. It was a Master’s degree in Electronic and Mobile Commerce. I’ve studied in the department of Information Technologies of Åbo Akademi University – a multi-faculty university founded in 1918 and located in Turku, Finland.

My major subject was Information Systems and I wrote my thesis on the topic of “Location-based mobile services for carrying out daily life in an unfamiliar environment”. My thesis has received one of the highest grades – Eximia cum laude approbatur (approved with exceptional praise).

In December 2014 an official Graduation ceremony was held in Åbo Akademi University, where I have received my diploma from the rector of the university.

I’m very thankful for the experience and knowledge I have obtained from this graduate degree and for the amazing support, we have received from the teachers from our department.

My first graduate degree was completed in 2005, it is equivalent to a Master’s degree. I’ve completed it at Moscow State University of Economics, Statistics and Informatics (since merged with Plekhanov Russian University of Economics). My major subject was Organisation management and my minor was Management consulting. I have also graduated with honour.
