I welcome you all on the University official website!
Throughout the years, Plekhanov University of economics has trained thousands of highly qualified specialists, who successfully work in Russia and abroad. Our alumni hold senior positions in politics and economics, business and science. Among them are members of the Russian Government, well-known politicians, and economists, deputies of the State Duma, Heads of the largest business structures, famous public figures.
One of the strategically significant tasks for today is training specialists, which will be in demand in the sectoral economy and regions in 5-10 years within the up-to-date technological lifestyle.
This year the University has 22 Bachelor programs, 2 programs in specialty and 17 ones of Master Degree. The structure of the University includes 20 branches, which are located throughout the country and abroad. Foreign teachers, specialists and scientists of world renown are actively involved in the educational and scientific process.
A special place in the development of the University is occupied by international activities. In this regard, the strengthening of our ties with foreign colleagues is certainly a positive factor. Thus, in the past year, an agreement on cooperation with the Zhongzheng University of Economics and law (China) was signed, as well as agreements on a double degree program with the University of Nottingham and the University of Coventry (UK).
The realities of the modern world are such that today come to the fore as strategic objectives – and in the educational process, and in extracurricular activities – the formation of not only professional competencies but personal qualities such as civic maturity, patriotism, sense of responsibility, leadership qualities, General culture. In other words, those qualities that form, in the opinion of the first Rector of our University, p. Novgorodtsev, "enlightened figures who love their country, believe in its inexhaustible strength and are able in the most everyday practical work to see the implementation of the great duty."
For more than 114 years our University has been providing its students and postgraduates with a high-quality education, which is considered to be the leading economic University in the country.
