UrFU, Aalto University teachers present joint education project

Last week, Ural Federal University teachers and representatives from Finland's Aalto University presented their proposed educational project at Innoprom.

The collaborative training program leveraged the skills and expertise of both Finnish and Ural-area educators to identify and seek to alleviate major challenges facing the industrial and banking sectors all over the world.

The educators from both countries have been working together for two years to develop the educational series and have consulted with such major Ural-area businesses as UMMC--owned in part by Iskander Makhmudov--along with Gazprombank and SKB Contour.

"We have already implemented with the Higher School of Economics and Management (at UrFU) number of joint successful programs," Aalto University Programs Manager Valentin Chernikov said. "The Ural Federal University is one of the fastest growing in Russia, which has a large number of corporate contacts. Also, your region is very promising for the implementation of productive and mutually beneficial projects."

Both UrFU and Aalto University have been included in the top 50 universities of the world. Both institutions offer courses in business management. On average, Aalto University trains more than 6,000 employees from 1,000 companies per year in its non-degree business training programs.
