We understand — our consultants were students just like you.

Our Beliefs

CIGAM is an educational consulting agency that firmly believes in the value of education. We believe that good education in a supportive and suitable environment provides opportunities for meaningful personal and professional growth and builds a strong foundation for further successes in life. This belief stems from the experiences of our founders who, after having grown up in Russia, Thailand, and Uzbekistan, have studied overseas at various universities in France (L’École des hautes études commerciales de Paris: HEC Paris), Russia (Moscow State University: MSU and Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas), the United Kingdom (University of St Andrews) and the United States (Massachusetts Institute of Technology: MIT), and returned with newfound confidence, knowledge and perspectives.

We believe in the importance of expanding access to these opportunities, and we see our mission in guiding current students who are considering studying abroad to choose and walk the path that is right for them. We believe that we can create a lasting change in the world through empowering our students, one individual at a time.
