Marina Dzhashi is a journalist and news presenter from Russia, and talks here about why she chose London Met to study for her MBA.
Can you tell us a little bit about your background?
I got my first degree from Moscow State Linguistic University and graduated with honours in 1997.
I'm fluent in English, French and Italian and I received a Merit in my Masters in International Journalism from Westminster University. After this, I was awarded a scholarship to study for an MBA at London Met in 2003 and my final project was about developing the Russian market entry strategy for the UK based Aroma Company.
My professional experience spans 12 years and covers such fields as education and media. I worked as a TEFL instructor in Japan and Russia. I started my journalistic career in radio as a news presenter at the Voice of Russia World Service in Moscow.
What is your current role?
I'm currently employed as a news presenter by Russia Today, a 24-hour TV news network broadcasting in English out of Moscow.
What were the advantages of studying this course at London Met?
Studying for my MBA at London Met has enriched me a lot both personally and professionally. The reason why I chose to study the MBA course is because I always wanted to set up my own business, and this is still one of my dreams, but it's on hold at present whilst I pursue the many other exciting projects I am currently involved in.
My London Met experience is truly unforgettable as I studied a variety of useful subjects and most importantly met a lot of interesting people, from very diverse cultural backgrounds. I'm very happy to be a London Met Alumni Ambassador and I hope to increase awareness of London Metropolitan University in Russia.
