When I was choosing the university for the scientific internship, firstly i paid attention to the infrustructure, rich history and, of course, academic teaching staff, Bolat Baltabaev says. Tomsk State University occupies higher positions in diferrent international and all-Russian ratings, this fact has also influenced my choice. Due to my foreign research advisor Krakovetskaya Inna Valentinovna my internship is going very effectively. TSU has astonished me with its scale, team integration and activity of the students. I have some time to discover more of TSU special environment.

The visit also included active participation of the doctoral student in the All-Russian (with international participation) Academic Competition “Enterpreneurship and Management” as an invited expert.

I shared my experience, told about the cases existing in Kazakhstan, after that we compared Kazakh bank “The Caspian” with SBER and Tinkoff. “The Caspian” is the number one financial technology system in Kasakhstan. It can provide up to 80% of existing digital finance services. I also told about such an unusual possibility as marital proposal with a bank app. In my opinion the innovations help a company to obtain the clientile by developing human resourses.
