Pulkkanen Veera

For more than 10 years Veera devoted her life to professional football. Once while doing her internship in the hockey club, she realized that she became an universal specialist and can realize herself in a team of marketing specialists within any kind of sports.

“I have been always in the sports and it is my passion. I run to work in the industry that I found most comfortable. My own university in Finland have partnership relations with the RIOU. They told me about this program. I applied and it turned out pretty well. I love Russia and Sochi. We had an opportunity to be here during the Football World Cup and this is an amazing city to witness the World Cup here. We were at the fun zone, watching matches almost every day. The atmosphere in Sochi is amazing. There are true football fans and everyone is here to support their team and at the same time there is no rivalry. They are like one big family. For me the main reason to study at the RIOU was to attend the course on marketing in sports and to meet with brilliant professors. I learned a lot in sports marketing here and I want to have my future career in the marketing, related to professional football or hockey. It is an international program here at the RIOU and from the first day of our studies we became the family and mafia and will be friends till the end.”
