A delegation from the Financial University in Moscow has visited the Business School, for the first of two events arranged in conjunction with local partner M.L.S International College.
Approximately 90 students – together with academic colleagues from M.L.S and Financial University – attended a lecture on Tuesday 17 July, entitled ‘25 Years of Economic Transition – Successes and Failures’, which was delivered by Professor Jens Holscher, Head of Accounting, Finance and Economics at BU.
Next week, the School will be hosting an Economics Forum in which the students will prepare questions for an expert panel. Dr Dermot McCarthy, Senior Lecturer in Economics at BU, will be representing the Business School.
Financial University is a leading Russian higher education institution with a student population of over 80,000.
