The founders of ICE are the Peoples' friendship university of Russia, “Ankor” HR holding, the Domodedovo holding, the Syngenta company, the Moscow Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Russia-Brazil Chamber of Commerce. One of the goals is to form extensive international business environment related to Russian and international educational projects.
“Recognizing a Russian diploma anywhere in the world, promoting Russian education abroad and, of course employing international students are the main tasks of the club,” said Larisa Efremova, Vice-Rector for International Affairs.
RUDN is the only university in the USSR and Russia aimed at training foreign specialists. The university has released more than 100 thousand professionals. Moreover, RUDN is the most international university in Russia. And it is not surprising that the first in Russia club of international employers was created on the basis of the University of peoples’ friendship.
“RUDN has an advantage - a large number of international students. When Russian and foreign students study together, they already become partners and friends. Foreign students in Russia are a kind of sherpas. They know Russian and they know Russia from the inside. They will become employers and will invite Russian students to work and forge partnerships with the Russian business, ” said Chairman of the Moscow Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Vladimir Platonov.
The meeting participants noted that in order to fulfill the club’s tasks, in particular, the employment of foreign graduates, it is necessary to monitor the labor markets of foreign countries, receive inquiries from leading companies and train in-demand specialists. According to the Secretary General of the Association of Russian Graduates of Bangladesh, “it is necessary to write term papers and dissertations bearing in mind a future job in specific companies even when you are a student.”
“Once, experts in the field of oil were in demand, and there were a lot of them - the market was oversaturated. Now we need smart engineers, professional IT specialists, people who can quickly make decisions and take responsibility, ” said Auelbek Tursunovich, President of RUDN Alumni Association in Kazakhstan.
RUDN has developed a cluster approach for exporting Russian education. The system involves the creation of educational sites and various forms of partnership between Russian and foreign universities, companies and authorities in countries with developing economies, taking into account the national interests of each country. It is assumed that work within the framework of the cluster approach and the ICE will be closely interconnected and mutually beneficial.
