North-West Institute of Management launches exchange programs with leading universities in Lithuania and Korea
The North-West Institute of Management (NWIM), a branch of RANEPA in St. Petersburg, has signed partnership agreements with Kookmin University in South Korea and Mykolas Romeris University in Lithuania. The new partners plan on developing research and educational cooperation.
“Starting from 2021, International Relations and Political Studies students can take advantage of a new student mobility destination, Kookmin University. Located in Seoul, it is one of the oldest and largest private universities in the Republic of Korea and a well-known center of programs for foreign students. It is included in the top 300 best universities in Asia,” said Darya Minyayeva, leading specialist at the school’s International Cooperation Department.
Another exchange program is opening for Law students on the St. Petersburg campus – an opportunity to take one semester at Mykolas Romeris University, the largest higher education provider in Lithuania, where they will take courses in social sciences and humanities.
The Baltic countries are an important destination for RANEPA students because the Presidential Academy is a member of the Baltic Sea Region University Network. “Expansion of academic cooperation networks strengthens friendly ties in the region and contributes to the positive trends in relations between countries,” the source at the institute noted.
NWIM RANEPA currently offers exchanges with 70 partner universities in 30 countries including China, France, Switzerland, Finland, Serbia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Turkey, the Republic of Korea, and others.
