One year after

Today is the 9th of July, 2013. Almost at this time one year ago I received a study visa for my Master's degree in Liechtenstein.
So many things happens during this year. I start and finish my fellowship at Hilti (I think, I should find some time to write more about it :) ), I complete two semesters, visit cities in Switzerland, Austria, Germany...
Unfortunately, I'm not concentrate enough on this blog - and it is my big mistake, I think.
I have a lot of drafts in messages but all of them not complete. But now its time to change something. And I want to start.
In my plans to publish articles for this blog regularly now. I want to show my experience about Liechtenstein and places around it and hope it will be interesting. If it is interesting I will write reviews about Hilti Fellowship as well.
So, hope to see you soon!

BPM Kick-Off Camp

Hello, everyone!

Now I want to tell you about my first meeting with my group. Everything, what happens with me in Liechtenstein are interesting and exciting. But this start of Master's program was really amazing!

In the several last days of August I received a very interesting letter:


What can you waiting for after receiving letter like this? My expectations were very different but in result

it was one of the best days of my life!

It is always difficult to meet new people, but here you should work with them in a lot of difficult situations. From my point of view, it is a great idea to build a team at the beginning of study. I hope, that this experience help us in our future life and studing in the "IT and BPM" program.

In the end I want to show you some photos, because exactly in this situation pictures can tell more than words.


Kind regards,

P.S. One more small update - video from Kick-Off:

Hilti Fellowship beginning

Hello, everyone!

This post will be about the beginning of my Fellowship in company Hilti.

I want to get you a small introduction of Hilti as a company. Hilti was founded in 1941 by Martin Hilti. First it was a mechanical workshop in Schaan, Liechtenstein. Nowadays Hilti Corporation, or Hilti AG, develops, manufactures and markets products for the construction and building maintaince industries, primarily to the professional end-users. The main office of Hilti is situated in Schaan, Principality of Liechtenstein and it is the principality's largest employer. The company employs more than 20000 people worldwide.


My Hilti's story, as my Liechtenstein's story began from BPM Winter School. During our studding in this school we've got a trip to Hilti.

There we study a bit of infromation about Hilti: main principles, products and so on. It was interesing to know some information about such company. On the same week I found a flyer in the Uni about Hilti Fellowship program, and decided to try.

As a result, now I am one of the three Hilti-Fellows.

Me, Felix and Karina
I'm really happy to be a part of Hilti team. The fellowship conditions are simple: during one semester we must work from Monday to Wednesday, and from Thursday till Satarday we've got our lectures in the University. Moreover, if we haven't got any lectures in working days we have to work in Hilti.

We've already got a first Kick-Off Meeting 11.09.2012. We've got an introduction to our task and had a chance to feel us like stars: it was a photoset and interview!

Here you can reed an article from Uni and Hilti.

Moreover, you can read about Hilti Fellowship and participation conditions here. I recommend you to try - it is a great chance to be a part of two different teams: University of Liechtenstein and Hilti AG.

In the end some photos from kick-off.

Karina, Felix and me.

Now we are all looking forward to the video presentation.

Kind regards,

How my story began

Hello everyone!

It is first article in my blog. May it will be a bit boring, but I think that it is important to give you some introduction about me.


My name is Maria and I am from Russia. Russia is a very beautiful and it is really big. Unfortunatelly, I haven't seen all russian regions yet. And I don't know any person who saw.

Map of Russia

I was born in Nizhny Novgorod. This city is not far away from the capital of Russia - Moscow - near 400km. In Russia it is really close. And you can reach Moscow for 4h if you use train 'Sapsan' - it is the fastest way to reach Moscow:

And some pictures of my city and region:

The last but not the least - video presentation of Nizhny Novgorod:


I received my Bachelor degree in 2012 and I finished Natioanl Research University Higher School of Economics in Nizhny Novgorod. I finished the faculty of Business Informatics and Applied Mathematics and I am a Bachelor of Business Informatics now.

My Mom and me. Receiving Bachelor diploma.
My education gave me a great chance to develop myself. And it was a really great four years!

And thanks to NRU HSE - Nizhny Novgorod  and espesially my faculty I find the next step of my life - university, where I study now - the University of Liechtenstein.

First I visited Liechtenstein when I was a participant of BPM Winter School. It was a week of great studding and fun. May be in this case pictures say more than words:

In the end of this week I tried to apply for the Master's program. And I were applied! In September, 2012 I started my Master's degree in field of IT & Business Process Management in the University of Liechtenstein. Moreover I am not only a student. I won a fellowship in Liechtenstein's company Hilti. It is one more surprise.


In this blog I want to share with you my live in Liechtenstein, studing in the University and working in Hilti. I hope, you find my story useful and interesting.

Kind regards,
