Editor in Chief, Open School of Sustainable Development (Russia)
The CS programme has given me a great chance to explore what sustainability means for economics and business. Working together with students from design, architecture and real estate opened my eyes to other important perspectives and challenges of achieving sustainability. For me the two major discoveries of the programme were design thinking and systems thinking – these skills really help me a lot at work and I believe they will become more important in the future. The CS community at Aalto is very friendly and I am truly grateful for the inspiring, hardworking and devoted people I met during my studies.
