When were you at Warwick?

I studied in Warwick in 2006/2007, my course was MSc Information Systems Management, Jimmy Huang was my tutor while I was writing my Dissertation in the last part of my course.

Do you have any fond memories?

I remember plenty of fun parties, probably I never had that much fun before or after in my life. I do remember nights in Warwick Business School building preparing endless assignments. But because of the support of my friends it was in some way too

Where did you live while you were at Warwick?

In Heronbank

Were you a member of any societies?

I was an active member of Russian Speaking Societies

What are you doing now?

I work in IT sales most of the time. I am sales director in Asteros Ukraine (www.asteros.ru)

Why did you decide to become an alumni ambassador?

I have made plenty of friends worldwide, while I was in Warwick, but it is hard to get in touch with people from my country who studied before or after me. And we do not have an active alumni ambassador in Ukraine, so I decided to go for this myself

What kind of people make up the Warwick alumni community in your area?

I do not see people from Warwick in my area. That is the primary reason for me to become ambassador, so that they can find me.
