To begin with I would like to tell you some words about myself. My name is … . I am a second-year student of the Economics Faculty of Biysk Technological Institute. I am … years old. At school I was good at Mathematics and Physics. I decided to enter the Institute because
I was always interested in problems of economic development. I showed some signs of interest in Economics in the 10th form. It should be mentioned that when I got acquainted with the Economics for the first time, I did not realize entirely how interesting Economics is and how complicated it is.
Everybody knows that Economics is a social science studying economy. In this connection to be a good specialist we are taught various general and special subjects, such as Management, Marketing, Money and Banking, Economic Theory, Macro- and Microeconomics. As we shall be managers at different enterprises, thorough knowledge of Engineering Psychology, Ecology, Sociology is vitally important for us too.
It is not easy to understand different economic problems, such as the role of government in economics, the role of markets and inflation, the problem of price and demand, etc. In my opinion if we want to become good specialists in this field of science we must read much fresh magazines, newspapers on business and economics.
I should say that every educated person should know a foreign language. According to this statement we have a chance to learn different foreign languages, for example, French, German and certainly English. The English language is an international way of communication; by the way, we are taught Business English too. Frankly speaking I took a great interest in the course of Business English. I suppose it will help me in my future activity to communicate with my foreign partners.
As many experts state the profession of an economist is very popular now. Our country has many problems in its economic development so many good specialists are required. Knowing the economic laws of the society’s development the economists can solve many problems facing our country and I hope I will manage to make my contribution to this process.
The graduates of our faculty work at different plants and factories, research centers and educational institutions, banks, etc. I would like to add that if a student has abilities and desire to become a scientist he may continue his studies at the post-graduate studies. It is very important that our Institute not only produces specialists but also provides the science with new scientific researches and achievements.
It will be a great honor for me to present the Economics Faculty of Biysk Technological Institute. I wish to get a good education, successfully defend my diploma and work according to my speciality if possible.
