Hello everyone, I am Yibing Zhao from Tsinghua University, Beijing. I was in the program 'Doing Business in Russia' of International Polytechnic Winter School in 2019. This two-week experience in Saint-Petersburg left me an extraordinary memory and many take-aways. In classes, we learned the Russian history, economic and social development, as well as the Russian business environment and entrepreneurship. The well-arranged schedule enriched this short program by guiding us to Pushkin and Hermitage and the field trips to factories. Saint Petersburg fascinated me with its beautiful scenery and abundant cultural heritages, and left me no reason for not coming and visiting again.
The program description was just so attractive to me when I read it. But I was still wondering and confusing if 2 weeks is too less to absorb such amount of knowledge in 3d, graphic design and new language! Once actually get into the course, all of my doubts and worries just immediately go away. I enjoyed fully the course which gave me a chance to have a totally brand perspective. New 3D modeling and graphic design are not that heavy but rather taught in very free and creative way. I love the city because it is beautiful and enormous. I love the people because of their hospitality! I took my chance to experience these amazing things, and when will be your turn?
