Founded in 1941, the Faculty of Economics continues the centuries-old tradition of economic education in Russia, being one of the leading centers of university education that trains economists.
Our traditional combination of fundamental education and professional training aims at developing students’ analytical skills and creative thinking to help our graduates adapt quickly and successfully to the requirements of any job in the field of economics. Our graduates enter their career path equipped with the latest trends in the field, educated to be analytic, resourceful, and inspired leaders in the world of work, able to add value to their organizations.
The economic reforms of the early 1990s brought about radical reorientation of economic education that was to meet both the challenges of the market economy and international standards of education. Since 1991 the faculty has run full-time 4-year Bachelor’s Degree and 2-year Master’s Degree programs in Economics and Management. Bachelor’s program gives a broad fundamental and general economic education, graduates being able to go on to enter Master’s programs offered by the faculty enhancing their specialist knowledge in the sphere of economics and their professional skills.
Our undergraduate curriculum includes four major blocks: the Liberal Arts, fundamental economics, applied methods and special theoretical disciplines.
