The Presidential Academy is one of the oldest educational institutions in our country. As an executive staff training center, it dates back to 1921, and will soon mark its centenary. This year, 2019, marks a decade from the Presidential Executive Order that merged two universities, the Academy of National Economy and the Russian Academy of Public Service, which opened a new and important chapter in the Academy’s development.
Over the past nine years, an institution of an unparalleled caliber has developed, capable of handling any educational, research and expert tasks anywhere across Russia, and it continues to grow. Every year, our Academy trains about 200,000 students in its various programs. We are the largest university in Europe and one of the largest in the world.
The Academy is also a unique networking resource. Our regional network of 54 branches ensures high standards and quality of education throughout the country.
The present-day Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA) is a university, a school of public administration, a business school, and a research and expert center, all in one. Its programs provide for continuous education and life-long learning, which is its huge advantage. The continuous education concept also reflected in the decision to open the RANEPA Lyceum (high-school program) in 2016.
The Academy successfully delivers highly important programs that train executive staff for the priority national projects, thus helping form the basis for the development of the modern Russian state.
The Presidential Academy fully applies the most advanced educational and management technologies available in Russia. We are rightly proud of the remarkable team of teachers and researchers, which ensures the Academy’s leadership in various areas of training of qualified personnel for civil service and business.
