Why did you become an ambassador?
I am proud to present our Faculty and share my life in Brno, as I enjoy studying and living here. My experience in Brno has started in 2017 when I came for an Erasmus program at Masaryk University. I enjoyed it so much, so I decided to finish the Full-degree program here. I believe that I can easily advise future students about the visa process and all organizational issues, as already did it twice. Don’t hesitate to contact me, I will be happy to help.
What do you love most about your studies?
My specialization is Financial Markets. After several years of working in Finance, the choice to study in this program has been well thought out. This topic is interesting to me, so I can confidently say that I enjoy every course that is taught. With every semester my knowledge is growing, and therefore career prospects too. The overall atmosphere at the Faculty and in Brno makes it a perfect place to study. I have no doubts that I made the right choice to come here.
What advice would you give to new students?
I would advise to enjoy the time being a student! Take courses in which you are interested, if you handle the study process good - don’t afraid to take more subjects in which you find yourself passionate. Student years is the best time to realize what your interests are. Get knowledge and plan your future career. And, without any doubts, have fun, travel a lot around the Czech Republic and to the nearest countries. It is so much to explore!
