I completed my undergraduate studies at Khazar University School of Humanities and Social Sciences in 2011, where I received significant support from the university community. During my time at Khazar University, I actively participated in a variety of projects, seminars, and programs, including DAAD and Erasmus Mundus, where I also served as a coordinator. Notably, I played a key role in organizing the DAAD program, which involved hosting German students for a summer program focused on the oil and gas field at Khazar University in Azerbaijan.

I completed my MS.Ed in the Adult Education and Human Resource Development (AHRD) Program at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA, USA. This program is quite distinctive and is only available at a few institutions. It integrates higher education studies with human resources, with a focus on utilizing technology in higher education and exploring learning theories. During my studies, I conducted research in the field of AHRD, with a particular emphasis on topics such as "Mobile Devices' Effect on MOOC-Massive Open Online Course," "Learning Management System," and "Diversity." My thesis was titled "The Effect of Cross-Cultural Differences on Team Performance," and it received an Outstanding Thesis Award from James Madison University Graduate School in 2016.
