Hi everyone! My name is Mert. I have had a chance to be a part of the RANEPA family since 2019 with the Project Management Master’s Program. From first application to graduation, every member of the family; especially Dear Dr. Mitali Mittra, has taken care of me and I have always been aware that somebody is ready to help me with lectures, education, accommodation, social life, paperwork, etc. Besides, the program helped me to find out new perspectives and although I am an architect, I have learned to combine my profession with management and marketing doctrines. I hope I will benefit from the things I learned in the future. Lastly, I should mention that I have had quite good friends both in the academy and in the city. Moscow is a beautiful city where you can find social and art activities, nightlife, friends, cinemas, theatres; in short, you can find whatever you look for. The bonus is beautiful white views of the city. But do not forget to take warm clothes with you.

In MSc. Project Management, the course is taught entirely in English which not only helps to bridge the communication barriers between local and international students, but most importantly the course was designed to expose students with Business English which is widely used within the international business context. As a former designer with Arts and Design background, this has helped me tremendously to grasp new business concepts while developing critical thinking skills particularly problem solving which is a requirement for aspiring business leaders of a VUCA-driven world. 

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the classes were swiftly switched into an online learning mode via ZOOM. From traditional classrooms lectures, we have adapted under the new normal by becoming more tech savvy with online classes and exams including defence presentations. This was only made possible under the helpful guidance of Dr. Mitali Mittra as the Director of the Project Management programme, which I am truly grateful to.

Программа Project Management заставляет по-новому взглянуть на процессы управления проектами, открывает комплексный подход на основе лучших мировых методологий. Особенно полезен опыт, которым делятся практикующие преподаватели, управляющие бизнесом и реализовавшие проекты в различных сферах.  Уверен, что эти знания необходимы современному менеджеру. И самое главное, программа объединила нас в сильную команду, которой мы остаемся и после завершения обучения. 

 Желаю успехов всем, кто выбрал путь с Project Management Program!

Программа управления проектами в РАНХиГС для меня – это отличная возможность получить актуальные знания от профессионалов в своем деле, которые не только в теории, но и на многолетней практике оттачивали свое мастерство, применяя новейшие технологии проектного менеджмента. Участникам программы магистратуры предоставляется возможность получить международные сертификации: PRINCE2, PMI, PMP. С дипломом магистра наук выпускникам открывается множество дверей: от больших корпораций до собственного предпринимательства - именно поэтому стоит отдать предпочтение этой программе. Кроме того, у будущих магистров будет насыщенная культурная студенческая жизнь и международные связи в будущем, так как на программу ведется отбор участников со всего мира.

After working for 5 years as Operational Manager & Project engineer in some of the renowned groups from India such as Tata etc., I have been looking for boost in career with an impactful academia specifically in European region. So my search halted with International Project Management Program in the Russian Presidential Academy, Moscow. This program provided me an amazing opportunity to interact and compete with multinational classmates having significant experience in diverse fields. Apart from it the institute is located at the heart of Moscow a really vibrant, dynamic and alive city which provides innumerable opportunities to learn new facts at every moment also the city is full of museums, restaurants, clubs, concerts and events providing opportunities for entertainment. 

The Project Management program is organized in a very structured manner, which is being supervised regularly from Program director and assisted by coordinators ideally and dynamically. The Program consists of number of subjects, which are being taught by globally renowned Professors, industry experts, significantly successful project managers, top-level executives and directors of big firms. Interaction with these intellectuals did not only improve our learning and experience of management but also gave clear sense towards handling tough practical issues by applying managerial tools. These instructors have been putting their best to blend the theory with the practical approaches. I have found some of the amazing courses under this program such as Strategic Management, Strategic Marketing, Data Analysis and statistics, Change Management, Strategic Project Management, Financial Management, Consultancy Management, Supply Chain Management and Managerial economics etc. At RANEPA, apart from having ideal and massive giant infrastructure there were some surprising facts such as shifting all programs into online mode without wasting any time immediately after the Pandemic or global crisis began. 

I am grateful to be a part of this institute and indeed, it was a wonderful experience to be among my peers, professors and business professionals.
