HSE University Hosts Students of ’Doing Business in Russia’ Programme
The official opening on September 24 was kicked off with a speech from the programme’s director, Prof. Natalia Guseva. This was followed by presentations from the Head of Department of Economy and Science of the German Embassy in Moscow, Mr. Thomas Graf, the Head of DAAD’s office in Moscow, Dr. Andreas Hoeschen, the Head of the Membership Department of the German-Russian Chamber of Commerce, Dr. Christine Frank, and leading German expert of Deutch-Russisches Forum e.V., Dr. Gregor Berghorn.
At the event, students from Germany and Netherlands had an opportunity to take part in an induction module at HSE University and learn about doing business in Russia. The lectures were held by Dr. Sergey Efremov (Chief of the Delivery Unit, Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation), Prof. Natalia Guseva (HSE Faculty of Business and Management), Mr. Evgeny Tsaplin (Lecturer, HSE Faculty of Business and Management), Ms. Marina Kozak (Director of HSE International Students Recruitment Centre) and Dr. G. Berghorn (Deutch-Russisches Forum e.V. and the former Head of DAAD’s office in Moscow).
On September 27, the German Embassy hosted a ceremonial reception of the Plenipotentiary Minister and Permanent Deputy Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to the Russian Federation, Mrs. Beate Grzeski, on the occasion of the completion of the 2018 spring semester and the beginning of the 2018-2019 fall semester of the ‘Doing Business in Russia’ programme.
On the final day of the induction module, students also visited the German-Russian Chamber of Commerce. The knowledge and skills acquired thanks to taking part in this course will be useful to anyone considering an international career and, in particular, to those planning to work as country experts at multinational companies operating in Russia and consultants.
Over a six-month period, students will be working at German and Dutch companies, as well as engaging in team projects with leading HSE experts. At the end of the internship period in March 2019, the closing experience-sharing seminar and defense of team projects will take place once again at HSE.
