Mekhretdin Barakayev
Faculty of Management and Social and Technical Services

My name is Mekhretdin.

I arrived to Russia in 2013 to study at prep training courses so that I can enter a university as a Uzbek citizen and in a year I entered Minin University. My major is ‘Finance and Insurance’. Two years later, I decided to try the hand in professional activity therefore I passed an internship at ‘Eda i Kultura’, a large and quckly developing project that includes 19 cafes and restaurants in Nizhny Novgorod. At the university I gained basic knowledge and necessary skills which were useful during the internship. Upomr graduation I am planning to stay in Russia and continue working here. Studying at Minin University allowed me not only to gain professional knowledge, but also to find interesting and well-salaried job.

Extracurricular activities of the university should be mentioned as well. I took part in various events that unite students of different nations. It allowed me not only to learn the culture of Russia and other countries, but also to find friends.
