The Institute of Economics and Management will begin its work at TSU in September. It is a new unit, which will combine scientific and educational work in economics and management. The Bachelor's and Master's programmes of the new institute will conform to international standards, and the reception of documents from entrants is being conducted now.
The Economics and Management Institute was founded in the Faculty of Economics, the Higher School of Business, and the International Management Faculty with the active support of Sberbank Corporate University.
This educational institution model requires that students learn not only specialized courses, but also receive a basic knowledge of the natural sciences. This approach to economic education is a trend among the world's leading universities such as MIT and Tsinghua University (China).
The task of the TSU’s new Institute is to become the leading centre of economic and management education beyond the Urals. The results of the preparatory work that the University led during previous years will contribute to it. Now TSU has strong partners in economics and management, including Sberbank, the international companies EY and KPMG, and others. Also among the partners of the Institute is the association ACCA that conducted professional accreditation of the Master's programme Finance and Accounting in Organizations, which as a result received an international quality mark.
Combining the three faculties and modernizing the educational activities in economics and management requires an appropriate material and technical base and the development of campus infrastructure. University management is actively working to address these issues.
