My Journey in HSE Began with One Bold Step

Matthew Boadie – Ampong, the graduate of the program 'Political Analysis and Public Policy' shares his study experience and writes the review to motivate current and prospective students who are in and want to commence academic journey with HSE respectively, to keep the focus on their academic life.






I enrolled in the Master’s Programme in Political Analysis & Public Policy, specializing in Human Rights & Democratic Governance and was not an easy decision for me as I thought. Suddenly I faced financial inabilities.This is not meant to scare you but to let you understand the intensive nature of the program which is purposively designed for students ready to face a new academic baptism, undergo constructive criticism, develop research and administrative skills within miniature time-space. Finding myself in the Department of Public Policy where there are high academic spirits, and its core value of familism is, directly and indirectly, meant to champion the academic success of each and every student in the department, I was immensely supported by the students and professors of the department not because I am a good student or a bad student but to drive me towards the bigger dreams that transcend the academic walls to real life. So never give up. There is always a lighted candle in HSE for people like you and me. 

The high level of professionalism and the interdisciplinary nature of the policy program and professors have prepared me more than enough for the job market and to make the world a better place. 

    My first appreciation goes to prof. Sanjay Kumar Rajhans who devoted himself to go through the thick and thin with me to finish my study.  I especially want to thank you for being a not just my supervisor and professor but a father, brother and a true friend to me. Had it not been your emancipated support, I would have quit my master's education. For discovering the talent in me, I have been able to come out not just as distinction student but one of the highly-rated distinctive students in the 2017-19 academic year. Professor Sergey Parkhomenko can never be left out. He understood some of my financial disadvantages which were massively affecting my academic performance and concentration not from the business or commercial point of view, but from an academic and fatherhood perspective. I cannot forget the intellectual wisdom inculcated into me by the professors of Public Policy Department. Every single day spent in the classroom was like undergoing rigorous policy training and devoting our time to break the political, economic, and sociocultural problems existing in the public sphere by intellectually thinking and deliberating on the right policy tools and policy alternatives that best meet the public needs. The research orientation ingrained into us as students has really made a significant contribution to my academic and professional life. That is, despite the tough academic schedules, I was able to publish scientific articles in academic journals which awarded me an increased state academic scholarship from HSE as a form of recognition and motivation to my engagement in the scientific world. I was able to do this because of strong research experience and expertise of the great professorships of the Public Policy Department. Your high level of professionalism and the interdisciplinary nature of the policy program has prepared me more than enough for the job market and to make the world a better place. 

    Finally, special thanks go to all my colleagues that I spent every single minute of my academic life with (my classmates). I must say, that the internationalism or inter-continental-ism of the year group under the Faculty of Social Sciences, made me understood hundreds of students that I encountered from a diverse cultural perspective. We cracked the brain together and underwent sleepless night as a team to achieve our academic motives.  I am highly humbled to show my respect for the love, caring and fun we shared together. I wish to see you all on top-ranked policy tables making pragmatic policy solutions to meet the interest of the public at the local, national, regional and global level.

YES indeed HSE is not for school but for life.
