Emaridial Ulza has graduated from Tomsk Polytechnic University, the master’s degree course on management. In his home country Ulza worked as a television presenter on one of the channels in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. And when he decided to continue his education he chose Tomsk and Tomsk Polytechnic University.

In Indonesia he earned a degree in management. Then he worked for some years in Jakarta – was a news presenter.

“I have decided to go to Russia because here qualitative higher education was available to gain. And I wanted to study the Russian language as it is one of the official UN languages,

says the graduate. – Previously, Indonesia and the USSR had pretty friendship links: you assisted us to build schools, hospitals, stadiums, a lot of Indonesian students took courses here. We have even common heroes. For instance, Yuri Gagarin was awarded with a national reward. Currently, students know very little about Russia.”

Ulza chose a Russian university very carefully: he took into account rankings, students’ testimonials on universities – as a result he had chosen Tomsk Polytechnic University.

“TPU is one of the main education experts in Russia, the university has got a great experience to deal with international students, high places in various rankings. Personally, I drew attention to this,” – shares Ulza. And now I can say for sure I was right.”

His master dissertation was dedicated to the development of a marketing communication system for a construction company based in Indonesia.

“My proposals allow to significantly increase sales. I have already introduced my ideas to the company and received a positive feedback,”

says the graduate.

At the moment Ulza has already got offers to pursue a PhD programme in different countries. But the guy admits at first he wants to come back home.

“Because of my job in Jakarta and study in Tomsk I have not been at home five years, I miss very much. That’s why I don’t believe I’m ready to continue studying. Additionally, I can tell prospective students at home about education in Russia. As I was the first student from Kerinchi regency, Jambi province, to study in Russia. I was a trailblazer and now I can tell about studying here,” – adds the graduate.
