It combines high education standards with a very international setting.

Emerging economies pose special challenges for managers aiming to enter attractive new markets, or to exploit new opportunities of world-wide division of labour.
The Institute of Business Studies of the Russian Presidential Academy has designed the program to familiarize students with international management with a special emphasis on management and business principles in emerging markets. 
One of the main objectives is the practical application of the knowledge acquired with the discussion of industry and company case studies in the context of emerging markets. 
The modules delivered in the specialization semester cover such topics as macroeconomic and microeconomic issues in emerging economies, the key role of FDI and other forms of investments into emerging economies, management styles adopted, the peculiarities of specific industries in emerging economies. IBS-professors have a lot of expertise in the field of management in emerging markets and are in most cases practicing professionals.

Apart from becoming an expert for the BRIC countries Russia and especially Moscow has many to offer for international students. Like the rich culture and a vibrant night life. Study one term in the largest country of the world.
