“The mission of the modern university is to train creative leaders who make the world a better place,” Rector of RUDN University at an educational forum in Paris
The educational forum under the auspices of the Russian application for the right to host the World Universal Exhibition EXPO 2025 gathered in Paris the leading universities of our country, foreign graduates of Soviet and Russian universities and representatives of diplomatic missions to discuss topical issues and prospects of international education in Russia.

The program of the event included three blocks: opening of the forum with the participation of Mikhail Kotyukov, Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, panel discussion “International education in Russia. Modern strategies, methodology and results”, and TED style presentations.

The panel discussion ended with a question to all participants of the panel discussion: “Why should foreign students go to study in Russia?”

TED style presentations of RUDN Rector Vladimir Filippov and a graduate of the RUDN University Hamed Abu Zahr (President of the Arab-Peruvian Chamber of Commerce, President of the Association of Alumni and Friends of the Peoples' Friendship University in Peru) demonstrated the opportunities offered to foreign students.

Hamed told his success story: “I know several foreign languages, my native language is Arabic, but out of gratitude for Russian education, today I will speak Russian.” His performance was accompanied by a bright kaleidoscope of photographs of student life at RUDN, and his wife and children, who had also graduated the most international university of Russia, came to support Hamed.

Vladimir Filippov spoke about the challenges and opportunities for the leading universities in the world. One of the key points of his presentation was: “The leading universities have not just a quantitative task - to increase the number of international students, but the task of quality for attracting capable, best students.”

Recent trends in the scientific and educational activities of leading universities in the world have led RUDN to systematizing this activity based on the cluster approach. The idea is that a consortium of partners is created for a group of neighboring countries, which includes representatives of ministries, government organizations, business, industry, partner universities and Alumni associations. Collaboration of partners is aimed at targeted training for the needs of a particular region as well as implementation of joint programs, scientific and industrial projects.

Rector of RUDN emphasized that the mission of the modern university is to train creative leaders who make the world a better place.

“Once we conducted a sociological survey among students, and if a 1st-year international student answered - I will do what the government decides to bring the greatest benefit to the people, in her final year she already said: “I will stand for peace on Earth and take care of the future of our planet."
