In 2012 Viktor Mikhaylovich Katochkov, Vice Rector of International Activity, Professor of Trade and Economic Faculty was awarded with the title “Person of the Year — 2012” in the nomination “Educational Process”.

This award is the confirmation of significant importance of the international activity of our University which in recent years became one of the most important parts of SUSU educational process.
