The Master's program "Management of International Projects" in RUDN has become for me a good start to a successful career.
The course program is well organized and gives not only theoretical but also practical knowledge, which, I believe, is important in the education system. For example, we participated in professional tailored projects with presentations before the commission, simulated business games. Such experience, in my opinion, is necessarily useful in the future.
Also, I was a student of a double diploma program in conjunction with the University of France CNAM (Conservatoirenationaldesartsetmétiers, Paris). This allowed us to acquire new knowledge, make many interesting and useful acquaintances with students from different countries, as well as obtain a European-style diploma. And, of course, this is an opportunity to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The teaching staff in RUDN and CNAM are undoubtedly highly qualified specialists, many of whom have huge successful practical experience.
My name is Lisa, and I got a bachelor's degree in PFUR. At the end I had no doubt what university to enter. Now I'm studying under the program "Management of International Projects" at the Department of Economic and Mathematical Modeling.
Most of all I like the synergy of practice and theory: we do not just learn what NPV is, but we also try to understand how and in what industries we can apply it in life.
My basic education is not closely related to economics, finance and profitability, but with practice in the process of work I realized that knowledge in this area is simply necessary for me.
Thanks to the disciplines of the program and the teaching staff, I finally began to distinguish between the difference between the internal rate of return and the net present value.
And I did not regret that I chose "Management of International Projects" for myself, because this is a good basis for the future.
