Sergei Myasoyedov discusses dual degree program with EDHEC
On November 7 and 10, RANEPA Vice-Rector, Director of the Institute of Business Studies (IBS Moscow) Sergei Myasoyedov visited Nice, France, for talks with Emmanuel Metais and Olivier Oger – the new dean and dean emeritus of the leading financial business school in Europe, EDHEC. EDHEC was ranked as the top business school for finance Master’s programs worldwide by the Financial Times in 2017.
Former CEO of Renault for Russia and the CIS, now RANEPA representative on educational issues in France, Irina Zguralskaya, also attended the meetings. The parties discussed aspects of development of cooperation between the Academy and EDHEC; they agreed that Sberbank-sponsored FinTech, a unique Master’s project involving professors from EDHEC, RANEPA IBS and Faculty of Economics, is mutually beneficial.
The parties agreed to continue cooperating in this area, and confirmed a mutual intention to add undergraduate and graduate student exchanges to the teacher exchange program. The two school will soon proceed to discuss possibilities of developing joint dual degree programs of bachelor's and master's levels.
Mr. Myasoedov invited EDHEC leaders to attend and speak at the Gaidar Forum 2018, which will be held on January 16-18 at the Presidential Academy. The invitation was accepted with gratitude.
