Students' comments on the “Practice of Business” course:
"The “Practice of Business” course is, for me, a great field to put the theoretical material we’re being taught at Lomonosov MU BS, to practice. It gives me an opportunity to evaluate my performance in order to understand which of my skills need more work. Working in a real company as a legitimate employee, I’ve come to better understand responsibility, business culture, teamwork, interaction with clients."

“The course allows us to gain experience through internship in various companies and work in different markets and spheres of business. My internship for the Simens company in 2008 has allowed me to understand the real business world. The opportunity of working in large, successful companies like Simens is a chance to gain priceless experience that is crucial for our future success.”
Ashar Burak, Bachelor graduate of 2009.
"The internship brought along several lessons and personal development. Firstly, I learned very well how to work with a partner. This was crucial for thinking outside the box and seeing things from various perspectives. Secondly, I was able to get an insight into not only a Human Resources Department, but more into an internal “human management” department, as the Training & Development Department can also be described. Thirdly, I really developed my communication skills. By conducting many interviews and seeing the company more as an outside consultant, I was able to not only intensify my way of communication, but also communicate from a different position or point of view than someone who is very familiar with the company and works there for a long time. Lastly, even if the company was originally from Germany, it was important for me to see how business in Russia is done.
I believe that I got a broader and more international view on business matters and was glad to have gotten the chance to participate in such an interesting and meaningful project."
