RANEPA collaborates with the UK
The First Russia-UK University Rectors Forum has been held in Moscow. Representatives of the Presidential Academy discussed their educational programs with their British colleagues.
The convention, organized by the Russian Union of Rectors, Lomonosov Moscow State University and rector associations from partner countries, focused on the development of inter-university research and educational cooperation. “Russia is showing readiness for effective and systematic cooperation with British partners in various fields of development of science and education,” said Grigory Trubnikov, First Deputy Minister of Science and Higher Education of Russia.
RANEPA Vice-Rector, Director of the Institute of Business Studies (IBS Moscow) Sergei Myasoyedov and President of City, University of London Paul Curran discussed the new joint program, MSc Supply Chain Management and Global Logistics. Like other joint programs between the Presidential Academy and the University of London, the new program will open in 2020. Sergei Myasoyedov spoke about the methodology work RANEPA did during the program’s development.
Experts from RANEPA Graduate School of Corporate Management (GSCM) and the University of London Teaching Center at RANEPA actively collaborate with global logistics companies in developing educational content. Three new double degree master's programs with the University of London – MSc Data Science, MSc Supply Chain Management and Global Logistics and Master of Laws (LLM) – will open next year. They are focused primarily on the development of skills that are in high demand in business: even during the training, students will work with cases and databases of real-life Russian and British companies. This will help them form a portfolio of projects and become qualified professionals at the international level.
Paul Curran noted the strategic importance of this approach. Due to businesses’ involvement in developing the methodology, the fundamental program can become relevant for the Russian economy in the context of global development, he said. Plans call for attracting business representatives to the program as consultants and tutors.
