Ural Federal University and Sberbank Corporate University have collaborated to create a new Master of Science degree in Financial Management that is designed to develop teachers who are experts in economics and management.
Sberbank professors will discuss their experiences and explain what they look for in financial disciplines. The new program, which requires 49 academic hours of credit, will be presented by a staff of 38 teachers.
“I think we will soon see the results of our work together, when we come to new graduates of the university and will benefit from their knowledge, skills and talents," chairman of the Ural Bank OJSC Sberbank of Russia Vladimir Cherkashin said. "This training program for teachers and a new master's program will be the basis for successful relations between Sberbank and the university, and is a very good example of quality, targeted training."
URFU hosted the first “Modern Masters Degree in Finance” seminar Thursday through Saturday.
