Darum brauche ich einen Bildungskredit

Hello! I am Ekaterina Volkovich and I always try to set challenging goals and do my best in order to reach them. One of my goals was to study at IMD in Lausanne, and I am happy that IMD accepted me as an MBA student (starting on January 2022) and honored with the Merit Scholarship. However, I still need funds to cover part of the fees and living expenses.

Please, contact me at 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 a year.

Reason: It is very hard to find a loan of this size in Russia, particularly with an acceptable interest rate. In addition, it is impossible to have a loan in CHF. I have some savings, the scholarship from IMD, my parents helped me with a certain amount, however, I need more 40 000 CHF, so I would like to fund my studies with your help.

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

My short-term goal after graduation from IMD is to change a location. I plan to live and work in Switzerland. Therefore, first I would like to become a Data Protection Officer (DPO) of a company in Switzerland.

My long-term goal is to change the direction what I am doing. Now I align the companies with the applicable information security and data privacy requirements. But I am also very interested in the automation topic. I think that it would be great to combine my skills in these two directions. I am interested in a development of data privacy automation tools to help DPOs to automate their tasks. Privacy by design is also a hot topic now.

If you are a potential employer I would be happy to discuss with you possible opportunities in Switzerland after my graducation. I did an investigation and the potential employers after IMD were the following companies: KPMG, Accenture, Nestlé, Danone, Siemens, Danaher, PMI, Hilti, Digital BCG, Bain Vector, Tera Pak, Logitech, Amazon, Johnson & Johnson, etc.

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.
