During the lectures, we learned about how aviation performs during coronavirus pandemic, about its impacts on the airline industry, variation in fuel price, performance of hub airports and much more. A huge plus for me was that one of the lectures was conducted entirely in English, which helped me improve my learning of aviation subjects in English. Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences, many thanks for the experience!


Bogdanova Sofia, group 1821 

It was very interesting and informative to attend the lectures and interact with the expert Ivan Berazhny from a Finnish university of applied sciences Haaga-Helia. Thanks to this opportunity provided by the university, I learned a lot of new and useful information in the field of logistics and not only. The lecture was in English, and everyone could pose a question to the lecturer. I thank our university and our Finnish partners for such a unique opportunity!


Suslova Elizaveta, group 1821

The lectures organised by Nikolai Mayorov and conducted by Ivan Berazhny, a lecturer from the Finnish University of Applied Sciences Haaga-Helia were very rich in knowledge.

In addition to the latest statistics, an analysis of the air transport situation in the world was also given. The lecturer from Haaga-Helia explained the topics in clear language. Giving feedback to the lecturer was possible at each lecture, the teacher also answered all the questions on time. The experience of these lectures was unique and very useful.
