This is my Credit Motivation

Hello! My name is Ekaterina Volkovich and I am an IMD MBA candidate 2022. I was honored with the Merit Scholarship, however, I still need funds to cover part of the fees and living expenses for the second part of the program.

Please, contact me at ekaterina.volkovich@mba2022.imd.org. I will be happy to answer your questions.

About me: I have 6 years of experience in cyber security and data privacy, working last 4 years in Cyber Security department at KPMG. I graduated from Bauman Moscow State Technical University and have a specialist degree in information security (diploma with honors), I also had an internship during a semester at EPFL in Lausanne in the Computer Science faculty.

Request: I’m requesting the credit to help me fund part of IMD’s MBA tuition fees and part of the living expenses while studying during second part of the program.

Reason: I have some savings, the scholarship from IMD, my parents helped me with a certain amount, however, I need more 15 000 CHF, so I would like to fund my studies with your help.

Plan to repay the loan: My goal is to find a job after graduation from IMD.

Plans after study

My goal after graduation from IMD is to change a location and a function. I plan to live and work in Germany.

At my previous job at KPMG, I aligned the companies with the applicable information security and data privacy requirements. But now I want to work on development of products that customers love - products that inspire and provide real value. For me, it is interesting to understand needs of the company/customers, propose business logic of technology-powered producs, and design user interfaces. I think that it would be great to work in the field of Product Management, Design Thinking, UX. What I like most about it, that it is very creative work.

According to statistics on the IMD website, an average annual salary of graduates is $126,565 and a joining bonus of $36,926. Therefore, I am confident I'll be able to repay the loan.
