I live in England, in London and at times in Bornemouth (a resort suburb on the coast of the English Channel). I work as an analyst at J. P. Morgan, the largest American investment bank in the world.
Having completed the bachelor's program here with honors, I then received a master's degree, specializing in corporate finance, from the Economic Faculty of SPbU two years later. Immediately after finishing my bachelor's degree, I began to work in the financial sector in Petersburg and Moscow, ultimately moving to England.
Perhaps, I'm somewhat of an unusual graduate. For me, libraries, scientific departments or studios of bearded painters, in which real art and science is stored or born, have been replaced by refined picture galleries in European capitals and mainstream opera productions. I'm an investment banker, a representative of the very hydra of capitalism that we mocked in our underground student community. But the life of a banker is not without its charms—I travel a lot, work with real professionals in a highly competitive environment.
I am convinced that everyone is responsible for their own life, its development, and their own happiness. In this sense, the Faculty had the most positive influence on me. It allowed me to find myself. I chose course and as a result, took responsibility for my own development. Also, here I met such beautiful girls that I didn't encounter at other faculties.
