Participants prepared video business cards, presentations, and detailed reports, which were distinguished by the depth of research and information content.
The youth project of the IPACS International Student Club is working with a new generation of future high-class international specialists. It is aimed at developing additional competencies among students of the Academy. As part of the project, students study various aspects of international relations: diplomacy, geoeconomics, international conflicts and law, foreign economic activity, features of trade and economic relations, and gain practical skills in solving business cases, speaking, and defending international projects.
The event was solemnly opened by the guest of honor of the International Student Club, Director for the Development of International Education and Cooperation of the RANEPA Larisa Taradina.
She wished the graduates good luck and gave them important parting words:
“Experience that you are gaining now is very important. The most important thing you can do now is to invest the maximum from yourself, to learn something new. You are great fellows for participating in such projects. They can be a great springboard for your professional path.”
