It is essential to provide students with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in business process optimisation.

Permanent interaction with business structures (invitation of experts from business entities to read lectures in major disciplines of the program, organisation of trainings and master classes, solutions of scientific practical-oriented problems arising in the process of enterprises activities) makes the program unique.

The partners of the Department and bases for organizing practice are such companies as Gamma LLC,, Family Group, Titan74, FMC Clinic and others.

Zhang Wenxian, a student from China, shares her impressions about the program.

I’m in the second course now, and almost all of my marks are excellent during these two years. I do science for my master thesis. Based on my research I have published an article “Research on the Development of Cross-border E-commerce in China and Russia” in the journal “Science and Education”. After coming here, I found that I really like the atmosphere here and enjoy every minute and study here. I got to know excellent groupmates and teachers from all over the world, which benefited me a lot. I think after graduation, I will also use what I have learned to serve the society and be active in the economic and trade exchanges between China and Russia”.
