The key topic of the meeting with representatives of the Educational and Scientific Center "Management" and "Economics" was the increase in the number of gifted applicants. It is proposed to hold scientific competitions for schoolchildren, to attract them to participate in internal grants of the university.

 Ivan Lobanov mentioned that today, universities have to compete for applicants not only among themselves, but also with employment. Now the guys want to earn money immediately after graduation, and not in the future. 

Vladimir Iosifovich Resin, Head of the basic Department of Project and Program Management at Capital Group, stressed that it is necessary to provide students with employment at the beginning of their studies and noted that the main advantage of Plekhanov University is that it cooperates not only with large corporations, but also with state authorities: the Department of Transport, the Department of Urban Planning and Architecture, and others. Vladimir Iosifovich also suggested considering the possibility of opening a military department at the university. According to the professor, this will significantly increase the number of applicants.

Recommendations for attracting talent were given by the head of the Department of Economic Theory Irina Pavlovna Komarova: "Career guidance work with schoolchildren should be conducted in the direction of increasing the applied orientation of the subjects that are read by PRUE teachers in partner schools. For example, in business classes, teachers of the department introduce the course "Fundamentals of Trading", where students learn the basics of working with electronic exchanges, in particular, Binance, work in demo versions to create investment portfolios. This direction is of great interest not only on the part of schoolchildren, but also their parents".

Continuing the topic of participation of schoolchildren in scientific competitions, Professor of the Department of National and Regional Economics Nadezhda Sedova presented the experience of the Department of employment in large international projects involving school students and interaction with them on scientific research from the RFBR.

Svetlana Mudrova, Head of the Department of Political Economy and History of Economic Science, proposed to allocate places for employment to graduates who will have a portfolio of participation in scientific conferences, grants and research projects. She also mentioned that it is important that the final qualification work of students has a practice-oriented interdisciplinary project character and this is an opportunity to find employment in a prestigious company.

Plekhanov Russian University of Economics is waiting for creative students interested in science and is ready to provide them with all the necessary opportunities.
