31 January 2017

On January 24, the official ceremony of signing the agreement on the MOST (International Education for Students)  project took place at the Chamber of Commerce of the Nizhni Novgorod region. The project was launched in 2014 on the initiative of the International Community Association of the Nizhni Novgorod region (ICANN) and the region’s leading universities, namely, Lobachevsky State University of Nizhni Novgorod and Alekseev State Technical University of Nizhni Novgorod. 

The academic year 2016/17 marks the third wave of the project. This year, the National Research University "Higher School of Economics" joined the program thus necessitating the need for a new agreement. The objective of this program is to motivate students of Nizhni Novgorod universities to start a career in an international company in the region and to raise the level of their awareness regarding the key skills required to achieve success. 

Participants of the ceremony, including ICANN President, Dr. Florian Reiter, ICANN Board members, Rector of Lobachevsky University E.V.Chuprunov, Vice-Rector for Research of the Alekseev State Technical University E.G. Ivashkin, Director of the National Research University "Higher School of Economics" V.G. Zusman, as well as representatives of the universities and ICANN member companies involved in the MOST project, discussed the results of the joint work and shared their impressions. In their opinion, the project has really become effective and useful for students who have a unique opportunity to do an internship in international companies, while companies can assess their potential future employees.
