Joint Educational Projects Between ROSOBORONEXPORT & MGIMO

By Staff Correspondent

A cooperation agreement was signed between ROSOBORONEXPORT JSC (a division of Rostec State Corporation) and the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO), a prestigious Russian university run by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, during the XXVII St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

Alexander Mikheev, Director General of ROSOBORONEXPORT, and Anatoly Torkunov, Rector of MGIMO University, both signed the contract.

Implementing and improving apprenticeship, internship, advanced training, and retraining programs are also part of the agreement’s scope of work, as are joint educational projects in the fields of research, information and analysis, software/hardware, international, science and technology, and languages.

The commercial relationship between ROSOBORONEXPORT JSC and MGIMO dates back many years. Rostec State Corporation also has a specialized department that has been training masters in the field of “Management in Military-Technical Cooperation and High Technologies.” This department was created in 2008 and is actively involved in cooperation.

“Graduates of MGIMO have been actively participating in military-technical cooperation since the 1980s, both in regional and marketing departments,” remarked Alexander Mikheev, Director General of ROSOBORONEXPORT. Throughout its 25 years in business, ROSOBORONEXPORT has employed more than 200 highly trained professionals from throughout the world. More than 80 people, including experts, now hold MGIMO diplomas. They stand out because to their self-assured fluency in many languages, keen analytical abilities, independence when faced with new knowledge, and extreme responsibility and commitment.

Developing a competitive domestic industry and building the capacity to create advanced military and dual-use products in today’s challenging international environment necessitates new-generation specialists. These individuals possess the intellectual and educational level necessary to forge new foreign economic ties in the field of military-technical cooperation and strengthen existing ones.

“Employees engaged in the military-technical cooperation system are required to be able to analyze and predict trends in the global arms and technology market, conduct a systematic competitive analysis of multidisciplinary high-tech corporations, and analyze the international environment of effective cooperation,” -said Anatoly Torkunov, the University’s Rector. “Exactly such professionals we will raise at our University for ROSOBORONEXPORT.”
