Benefits of Post-graduate Studies

Post-graduate studies and the completion of a doctoral thesis provide the opportunity to join the scholarly community as a full-fledged member and contribute to the progress of science in the chosen discipline. A candidate’s or doctoral degree provides important advantages to any applicant for an executive job, while publications in scientific and scholarly periodicals (a prerequisite to the thesis defense) provide valuable exposure in the professional and scientific communities.

The Academy’s post-graduates and doctoral students are actively involved in the Russian and international scientific communities through RANEPA long-term partnerships with the world’s leading scientific schools.
