The mission of FEFU is to train cadres not just for the Far East, but for the Russian economy, which is striving to integrate into the economy of the countries of the Asia-Pacific region (APR). Therefore, it is no coincidence that the presentation of the new training program took place in the international video bridge Moscow-Shanghai-Singapore-San Francisco at the site of the leading Russian news agency - TASS. The participants of the meeting talked about the possibilities of the Executive MBA (a course of training for heads of organizations and enterprises, after which they are awarded a master's degree in business administration) in the context of what problems and prospects the Russian business faces when entering or trying to enter the markets of the APR countries.

"This program will allow students of our MBA courses to fully immerse themselves in the economic and business specifics of the region, using concrete examples and real cases of life (case studies) to master algorithms and effective technologies of doing business, successfully apply them in their work and, moreover, in life, "Igor Osipov, chairman of the board of the FEFU Foundation, said in his speech at the round table.

He, as well as the director of the FEFU School of Economics and Management Elena Gafforova, told the participants and guests of the meeting in detail about the features of the Executive MBA in the Far East. In particular, the program structure is based on twelve educational modules, each of which explores a block of topics directly related to a particular business practice. The course content focuses on the features of doing business in the countries of the Asia-Pacific region.

The cost of training in the Executive MBA program in FEFU is 850 thousand rubles. The total duration of training is a year (4-5 days per month). The number of the set is twenty people. In addition to traditional seminars, the experts of the program use advanced educational methods. Among them: simulations of business situations, group and project work, business games, analysis of business cases of Russian and Asian companies, inter-module tasks for solving specific business problems, mastering the skills of providing information and cyber security.

The program provides for intensive interaction with experts - current top managers and business owners. Among the teachers there are such well-known personalities in the sphere of business and education as: Head of the School of Oriental Studies, Professor of Higher School of Economics Alexey Maslov, Director of Business Development in the Far Abroad SPLAT Igor Temirov, Partner of the consulting company eCamb (San Francisco, Silicon Valley ) Petr Tatishchev, Director for Business Development in Eurasia and Eastern Europe Assel Mussagaliyeva, Head of Vladivostok Branch of Mitsubisi Corporation Re Kawabe, CEO of EKF Group (China) Egor Pereverzev.

The international module of the program includes a study tour to Singapore, since the entire course was compiled in partnership with the National University of Singapore and the School of Public Policy Lee Kuan Y.

As a training course, the program starts as early as September 8, and a few days before it will be presented at the Third Eastern Economic Forum-2017, which, like the previous two years, will take place on the Russian island near Vladivostok, on the site - which has already become known throughout Russia and in the APR countries, the FEFU campus.

As representatives of the university told EastRussia correspondent, seven applications have already been received from the Far Easterners who have decided to study under the program. Among them there are both representatives of large (by regional standards) and small business, both participants of foreign economic activity and entrepreneurs who are not related to export -import operations.

The qualifications and the corresponding MBA training course came to Europe, and later Russia and the CIS countries, from the USA. A diploma issued at the end of the course is considered an official confirmation that its holder is capable of performing the work of a middle and senior managers. The period of study, depending on the initial training and the specific program, takes from two to five years. The training technology is based on the case study method widely used in the Anglo-Saxon countries (a detailed study of real cases). Despite the wide distribution, there is still no single standard of qualification and generally accepted systematization of MBA programs. Schools that provide an MBA degree are called business schools. Often they are created at universities: Harvard Business School - at Harvard University, Stanford Graduate School of Business - at Stanford, etc. From this year on, the number of such universities has been added to FEFU. The Executive MBA (EMBA) offered here is focused on senior executives and relies meaningfully on both the student’s business experience and the specifics of doing business in the Asia-Pacific region.
