Lomonosov MSU BS was placed into a top league of the Universal Business Schools at the 5th Eduniversal World Convention which was hosted by CENTRUM Católica, the Graduate Business School of the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú from the 17th of October to the 19th of October in Lima (Peru).
The School has been participating in the Eduniversal Ranking since 2008, and had started with the third place out of four in the Top Business Schools league which at that time was the highest for the Russian business schools. In 2009 and 2010 Lomonosov MSU BS was solidly placed second in this league, but in 2011 became one of the three best business schools in the Eastern Europe Region.
This year the Eduniversal International Scientific Committee acknowledged the high quality of the education at Lomonosov MSU BS and its intensive international activity (awarding the EPAS accreditation, development of the partnership network and student and academic staff mobility, as well as its placement in other rankings), and moved the School to the highest league in terms of the Eduniversal Ranking – Universal Business Schools.
Representatives from more than 45 countries participated in the Convention in Lima this year. The Convention is not only an awarding ceremony but also a perfect opportunity to meet the traditional partners and develop new contacts at the Eduniversal exhibition, to participate in discussions with the experts and professionals during the plenary sessions and workshops. This year International Office Senior Expert Anna Winnik shared the Lomonosov MSU BS experience in cooperation with the Latin American business school at "Cooperation with Latin American Business Schools: what we can learn and how we can cooperate effectively" workshop. Besides, the Academic Programme Administrator Ekaterina Kiryushkina and Anna Winnik had a number of meetings with representatives of the leading business schools from France, China, UK, Brazil, Panama, Morocco and others.
