PLEKHANOVRussian University
of Economics

Founded in 1907


The Faculty of Management as a part of PRUE was founded on March 1, 1945. Its  name was changing  according to changes in economy of Russian Federation, and at the same time has been keeping the general management profile. The main basis of the preparation has always been the planning of the economy - meaning, strategic planning. Our faculty has produced some other structures for over 60 years of its existence. Over 40 years ago the Division of Economic and Cybernetics - now the Department of Economics and Mathematics became a separate unit. 

The major public figures and managers among the graduates are: The General Manager of RUSAL O. Deripaska and others. Graduates of our faculty are demanded by various state structures and well-known Russian companies. This is achieved through the arrangements of the Department with organizations such as Rostech, Rosatom, Gazprombank, SAP and others on the passage of students and undergraduate industrial practice.   

The faculty is characterized by intense student life. The feeling of leadership of our students at the University is confirmed not only by  a number of students from our faculty at the Student Council that is about 40%. Our students have repeatedly been the winners of “Student of the Year”, “The Best Group”, “The Best Film of the Year in PRUE”, etc. Student creative teams traditionally lead in the PRUE and are a part of the joint team of the University, representing us in regional and nationwide competitions.
