Students from leading Russian and foreign economic universities participated in the Olympiad. The Olympiad was organized by the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation, Sberbank Insurance Broker, and MIG "Insurance Today" with the support of leading insurance companies. The jury included Russian and European experts in the field of financial security.
Winners of the Olympiad included students of the Department of Financial Technology of the School of Economics and Management of South Ural State University Valeriia Grigoriieva and Timofei Kuzmin. Medallists include Rudolf Utkin-Lobov and Dariia Valiullina. Eight students entered the finals. The team was prepared by Candidate of Sciences (Economics) Iuliia Butrina.
The students completed two serious tours, demonstrating excellent results in the essay on issues of the insurance market and how to solve them, as well as in the test. The students improved their results from the last academic year, when four students of the department became medallists.
The students excellent results were achieved in part thank to the department’s many years of cooperation with Sberbank Insurance Broker, AlfaStrakhovanie, Ingosstrakh, and Rosgosstrakh. Graduates of the department are traditionally invited to work at the leading companies of the insurance market.
The winners of the Olympiad are given a 50% discount on full-time Master’s degree programs, medalists—25%. Students enrolling in a Master’s degree program with a state scholarship are given 100/50 points for their portfolio for winning or earning a medal, respectively.
We wish our students future success in their studies and in their research and an exciting and interesting summer holiday!
