Starting from this academic year a joint Master’s Degree program was launched by Kazan Federal University and J. Liebig University of Giessen (Germany). The program is implemented on the basis of the English language Master’s Degree program “Transition Management” of the University of Giessen and the Master’s Degree program “General and Strategic Management” of the Institute of Management and Territorial Development (IMTD), KFU.
The joint Master’s Degree program is geared to students with good marks and a very good knowledge of English, who are offered an opportunity to study a semester in the partner university after the first year of study and get two diplomas – the diplomas of Kazan and Giessen Universities. To participate in the exchange semester students get a financial support from DAAD grant funds.
This year three students of the University of Giessen came to participate in the joint Master’s Degree program in KFU: Erna Pulay (Albania), Manuel Salgado (Mexico) and Hevan Gebreselassi Assfav (Ethiopia). Together with other Master’s Degree students they will attend a course of lectures delivered in the English language by teachers of the Institute of Management and Territorial Development, as well as of the Faculty of Law, Institute of Ecology and Geography and Institute of Mass Communications and Social Sciences.
For four students of KFU training in Giessen will start in October. This year Anton Ponkratov, a student of the Master’s Degree program “Regional Economics and Territorial Management”, and Anna Frolova, a student of the Master’s Degree program “International European Law”, will study in Giessen together with the students of the Master’s Degree program “General and Strategic Management”, Nadir Kuramshin and Ilvira Khakimova.
The joint Master’s Degree program has become possible thanks to efforts of the managers of the two Master’s Degree departments: the Director of the IMTD, Professor, Doctor of Economics, Ms. N. G. Bagautdinova; the partner agreement supervisor, Professor M. Schmitz; the supervisor representing KFU, Director of the Department of Microbiology, Professor O. N. Ilyinskaya, with an active assistance of the External Relations Office of KFU, Learning and Teaching Department of KFU and international public administration service, as well as thanks to an intensive and well-coordinated cooperation of academic divisions of both the University of Giessen and Kazan University. There are economists, lawyers, ecologists, sociologists, politologists and others participating in development of educational content of the interdisciplinary program on Giessen and Kazan parts.
