Program Profile

Russian-French Dual Master's Degree
Program with HEC, Paris

The world of international business today is defined by rapidly growing transnational corporations. Their operations transcend state borders and their interaction forms the matrix of the current global economy. Management of these enormous companies requires broad strategic vision, a wide array of specialized skills in organizing business structures, and competences in cross-cultural outreach. Moreover, major transnational corporations are increasingly dependent upon the global political environment. Today business cannot avoid engagement of international politics.
