Russian expert attends AMBA Association forum
Natalya Evtikhieva, Deputy Director of RANEPA Institute of Public Administration and Civil Service (IPACS), General Director of NASDOBR and RABE, has spoken at the AMBA accreditation forum in Oslo, Norway, at the invitation of the organizers.
Natalya Evtikhieva shared the experience of joint accreditation of two RANEPA IPACS programs, MBA and MPA, which received national accreditation by NASDOBR and international by AMBA over the past year.
The audience at the business education forum was especially interested in the Master of Public Administration program, the first MPA in Russia, which turned 10 years old this year.
Natalya Evtikhieva spoke in detail about the specifics of the MPA program and the option of taking a dual MBA + MPA program. This correlates well with a ‘zigzagging career,’ which is a modern trend in Russia: business – civil service – business.
The RANEPA representative was the first ever speaker from Russia at the AMBA accreditation forum hosted by BI Norwegian Business School. The forum annually brings together over 80 representatives of business schools from around the world to share accreditation experience, identify and address the arising difficulties.
