Viktoriia Maliavina has always loved travelling and challenging herself. That’s how she found her way to Vancouver from her home in Russia.

She says Douglas College was appealing because of the variety of programs and supportive international department. Once she became a student, she found a place where it was easy to get help with assignments and take part in fun on-campus activities.

Having already earned a degree in commerce, Viktoriia is now pursuing a Post-Degree Diploma in Sales at Douglas.

“I love my program because it is a combination of theory and practice,” she says. “Our instructors make the educational process very interesting and businesslike by allowing us to work with real clients and attend marketing events.”

After Douglas, Viktoriia plans on a career in international marketing.

“Every industry needs good marketers in order to lead and succeed in the international arena,” she says. “It’s a very appealing field because of my strong desire to travel the world, experience new things and collaborate with interesting people.”
