My name is Kaisar Bilal and I am a 20-year old student at the Aalto University Mikkeli Campus. I was born in Semey, Kazakhstan which is in the east part of my country. I can speak Kazakh and Russian. I have also lived in Saint-Petersburg, Russia for 2 years. I enjoy doing sports like football, table tennis, and chess.
Why did you apply to our BScBA Program?
After 12 years of school, I knew that I did not want to stay in one place. I wanted to go to new places and meet new people like I did when I was a child. I narrowed my university choices down to business schools as I am interested in entrepreneurship. After highlighting the pros and cons of numerous schools, I was sold on Aalto for its high university ranking.
How has your study experience been so far?
Now, I am a 2nd year student and very pleased with this university. I did not realize how such a small city could be so exciting. People here are very polite and sociable despite the stereotype that Finnish people are introverts. Learning business and a new and totally unfamiliar culture has been amazing.
