It was 60 years ago, that RUDN University hospitably opened its doors for young people who came to Moscow from the newly independent states of Asia, Africa and Latin America, truly becoming their home. I am sure that many graduates warmly recall the years of study in our country, their teachers and friends.
Over the past time, the University has trained tens of thousands of qualified specialists in the field of economics, agriculture, medicine, law, history, philology, and other disciplines. It has made a unique contribution to strengthening friendship and mutual understanding between people of different nationalities and cultures.
It is gratifying that even today RUDN University carefully preserves established traditions and maintains reputation of one of the leading universities in Russia. It unites by its noble mission talented, proactive, purposeful youth from different countries, open to progressive ideas and the implementation of modern programs and projects.
I wish you success, good luck and all the best.
