Education

The Story

High-quality technical education abroad has been my aim for a long time, which is why I left my home country after graduating from the best tech high school in Slovakia (according to the INEKO ranking).

Followed by applying for the Ivy League universities. The University of Cambridge, according to rankings, the 4th best university in the world, invited me for interviews where I exceeded their expectations in Computer Science but didn't persuade them with my math skills.

I get the offer from University College London, according to rankings, the 7th best university in the world, to pursue competitive Information Management for Business program. I always believed in the importance of the intersection between humanities and computing as science what led me to the choice of studying pure Software Engineering as an undergrad.

Continuing with studying business would allow me to contribute to a better world in the future, either as a developer, IT manager, or an entrepreneur.
