School Signs Agreement with Russian Higher Education Institution

The School of Business has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA) to promote academic cooperation between the two institutions.

The agreement provides a framework for the following initiatives:

·         development of joint research, especially in the area of information technology leadership,

·         exchange of faculty and students, and

·         collaboration on conferences, executive educations courses and other educational programs.

“Like George Mason, RANEPA is interested in developing international partnerships to accelerate the research of consequence being generated by our universities,” said J.P. Auffret, director of Research Partnerships, School of Business. “Our institutions share a mutual interest in information technology leadership and innovation; this agreement will serve as an umbrella for many joint activities.”

In the past, RANEPA has informally partnered with the School of Business on several projects such as organizing international meetings on the changing role of the chief information officer (CIO) and establishing a CIO accreditation for graduate students in information technology management.

RANEPA, Russia’s largest federal state-funded institution of higher professional education, has approximately 200,000 students and is located in Moscow.
