The image that has been crystallized in my mind from being studying, living, acting and experiencing life in Moscow is now part of my personality… I've met different people from different countries, so our academy is amazing place for experiencing new culture. First when I arrived I thought that probably I am going to have problems related to registration but everything was gone so fast and I appreciated so much! Our coordinators are available all the time for us whether in office or through internet channels, which is a dynamic and effective way to reach not only them, but even lectures, sharing documents, presentations and exams, and this is exactly what the student needs. This is my second year of being study at the international program of master in Project management. To be honest I graduated from faculty of pharmaceutical science and pharmacology, and my friends in the program they were in shock when they knew this, because its completely different field of science. However, I faced experienced professors specialized in their subjects, so they introduce for us the concepts in a way that you can combine the whole image of understanding because we're dealing with theory that we can find it wherever you go but its existed in a practical way. Our program is blend of concepts and prospective that you have to get in touch with it in order to reach the gate to enter local/international, new/existing market. I guarantee that even if you have no previous knowledge about it, then you'll be surprised by your understandings at the end of the second year. We've got in touch with project management principles and techniques which is the beating heart of our program and our professor introduced it in a unique way but it would be much more effective and efficient if we implement more practical… You're going to deal with highly experienced professor whom I found the perfect synergic between theoretical and practical life in supply chain management which is the supporting skeleton of any business. Subjects related to marketing strategy and project marketing will give you the exact cosmetics that your business needs when you will implement it in the market. These subjects will reformat your way of thinking and making decisions in business world in order to let your projects reveal in proper way in international markets.

Othman Ali, Syria, Project Management- 2nd year-2016
My name is Alena Chato, I am a student of the second year master's program. My profile is project management. In 2014 I successfully graduated RUDN University. Faculty of Tourism, Hospitality and Restaurant management. After graduation, I decided not to stop and continue my education. Already have received higher education, I was able to objectively assess their capabilities, and to compare them with the needs directly with their personal and course requirements that dictate a modern market. For a long time choosing a place of training, received positive reviews from friends, my choice became RANEPA. Now I can confidently say that I was not mistaken, since this is the educational program meets all of my requirements. Over the past two years of my training, I had the privilege to study and work with a wonderful faculty. All teachers are professionals and practitioners, which is a huge plus. All items that I have studied at the academy, meet international standards and requirements. This master's degree in addition to core subjects directly related to project management I have successfully studied business disciplines from different spheres of activity that definitely shaped my outlook. Undoubtedly you can not keep silent about the workshops and thematic assignments. You will not believe, but to take exams can be really fun and unusual. Most of the credits and the final work, we passed in groups, which helps in the formation of interpersonal relationships and build team spirit. Separately want to say about our administration, although I do not like this name. Since first day these people became for me and my classmates friends and family during these two years. Honestly I did not think to say that the curator or the Dean may take care and help their wards 24/7. And it's not only a student's life. The doors of our administrative office are always opened for us and for our problems. And it's not just empty words, I can tell you for sure. A year ago, I became a mother, and this is the best thing that could have happened to me. I firmly decided for myself that I want to study up to the end. But to combine study and looking after the child is terribly hard. To be honest I have visited several times a thought of stopping the education. But my curator convinced me to continue my education and helped me to optimize the learning process. And for that I want to say great thank you to my Mitali and Margarita. I got a real great pleasure from learning and, most importantly, the masters program helped me to build the correct form of thinking and gain the necessary knowledge and skills. Sure I want and I will recommend RANEPA to my friends and acquaintances, as I am absolutely convinced that following this educational program, they will get a high-quality education and great experience.
Alena Chato, MSc Project Management

Studying International Project Management (M.Sc.) in RANEPA was an awesome experience for me. From the management board of the academy to the hostel staff, I enjoyed the good atmospheric welcoming every day and I always felt at home. As a foreigner, I did not lack or miss anything in terms of relating or making friends. The conducive environment offered me opportunity to learn better and associate with diverse multicultural students from different Countries of the world. Working in teams in the programme enabled me to meet and do school work with different people of different academic background and we really exchanged ideas, shared knowledge and discussed better. The dean and the energetic director of Project management ensured that we enjoyed very good and experienced professors from different parts of the world. And this is one of the reasons studying here is worthwhile and internationalized. The immeasurable knowledge transferring and teaching styles of those professors are recommendable. RANEPA is a place to be because students receives supports that enhances their studies and stay. Students enjoyed good benefits from unique facilities like the gyms, theaters, computer rooms, well organized modern teaching aids and coordinators who assist to make sure everything one needs is in place. It has been really wonderful experience to be in the academy.
Donatus A. Okpara, Nigeria, M.Sc., Project Management, 2016
By the end of July 2015, I had 4 admission offers from Australia, the United Kingdom, Russia and Poland. After careful thinking, I opted to accept the offer to study Project Management at RANEPA. Looking back today, I have no doubt that I made the right choice. It has been a truly remarkable experience studying at one of the best universities in Eastern Europe, and learning from a mix of globally renowned scholars/Professors and hugely successful business people, who have made learning practical, intellectually rigorous and fun at the same time. I have also been privileged to study with an incredible group of students who come from several continents and make every class session a multicultural experience. Furthermore, the organization, composition and structure of the courses, which covers all areas of management, including: Financial Management, Change Management, International Business Management, Human Resource Management, Organizational Management, Global Marketing, and Project management itself, have made studying this program an immensely excellent decision, and one I am grateful to have made.
Michael Olumekor, Nigeria, M.Sc Project Management Stage 1- 2016

My name is Diana and I'm a second year student of MSc Project Management. MSc Project Management course gave me the opportunities and knowledge I was certainly looking for during 1,5 years after getting my bachelor degree in Economics. Knowledge and expertise of the best professors from all over the world together with their business experience helped and motivated us to learn so much during these two years. This program differs from any other you can find at other universities in Moscow and gives you an absolutely new experience, especially after bachelor degree. Forget about boring non-stop lectures! Here you will get not only theoretical base, but practice as well. Classes are organized in such an interactive way that you always find yourself involved into group works, discussions, business case-studies and debates each time learning something new. During these two years we studied hard working in groups, developing projects, making market screens and creating , generating new ideas and implementing learned business models , trying to think "out of box". What we have as a result are: developed skills, business-oriented practice, valuable and up-to-date gained experience and learnings, and we also discovered talents and skills we were even not aware about! During the program you can easily implement all gained knowledge and experience at work, business and even daily life, because the experience and knowledge of leading projects and making them work efficiently can be impelemented into any process. Among the benefits and advantages you get from this programs is, certainly, great language experience: imagine, how impressively you can improve your English studying two years at English program and communicating with students all over the world. And, of course, the last but not the least important part of this program are people: administration, professors, students. You find yourself becoming a part of a big friendly family, surrounded by people, who are always ready to help you and motivate you. We found friends among students, administration and professors and will be happy to continue communicating with these people after graduation, no matter how far they will be. Looking back, I'm sure it was a right decision, made two years ago, to join this program, because, no doubt, it was worth doing it.
Diana Panasyan, Project Management 2nd Year 2016
I have always thought about my future, about building a career, becoming a successful person and generally finding my own path in the life. For that reason, I laid out a plan for achieving this long-term aim. After graduating as an Industrial engineer from Ecole Nationale Polytechnique of Algiers, I had a plan to enter one of the best universities for my master degree. My participation in PGLS (Preparing Global Leaders summit) Moscow 2014 guided me to discover one of the best universities in Russia and even in the world, RANEPA. With the objective of improving my skills and ambitions to become an expert in international business, I decided to continue my post-graduate studies in a globally recognized program, and I chose the MSc in Project Management at RANEPA. In all honesty, the design and structure of this program has met my interest, it has given me a chance to learn more about Time, Cost, and Quality management. I have also been able acquire knowledge in several very vital areas of management, such as Project Management, international marketing, operations management, and change management. In addition to all these fields in Management, we have also covered other subjects that provides the necessary tools to support our core management skills in making the best decisions. We have covered other areas like financial management for multinationals, data Management and statistical analysis, etc. The professors and instructors employed by RANEPA, both Russians and internationals are top notch and truly experienced individuals who know their subjects extensively and have passionately studied their fields. Furthermore, this program offers you the opportunity to study Russian language for free, 6 hours per week are offered in order to improve our Russian language abilities. Moscow is a truly amazing and unique city. Like any other huge city, there is no shortage of museums, restaurants, clubs, concerts and events to attend, but in Moscow things are just different. The history and vitality of the city really comes through and can make just walking down the street a fascinating and fun experience. Really, everything about the city is amazing except the winter which might be a bit tough.
