My educational journey began exactly four years ago when I was studying at the University of National and World Economy in Sofia, Bulgaria and I applied for an Erasmus exchange program. I entered the building of the University of Liechtenstein for the first time in the winter semester of 2011. At that time I had no idea that my life would change forever.
My exchange started “fast and furious” with the famous introduction week, meeting many new people, having a lot of fun and doing something new every day. Soon after the start, I found out that the university would ask for its share of my free time and that passing those courses would not be easy. During the whole “study hard, party hard” experience I did not realize how fast the time went by, how much I have learned, experienced, grown up, how many great new friends I have made and how I have fallen in love with this tiny country, its people and atmosphere.
After a certain amount of sad tears before leaving, I went back home to finish my bachelor studies and was determined to come back. The university had the perfect study program for me – one that helped me satisfy my interest in the financial markets, while developing my soft skills and academic research abilities at the same time. I was lucky to be accepted and even got a job at the university as a student research assistant. This helped me finance my education and also develop some additional skills while working in an academic environment. Furthermore, I received a scholarship for an extra-curricular certification program in finance (CFA).
After two years of really hard work, I graduated from the University of Liechtenstein with an MSc degree. The whole study experience also helped me improve my language skills and develop various capabilities. I am now working in the financial department of a major production company, in one of the greatest regions in Austria – Vorarlberg.
