Emmanuel Owusu‑Ansah, Ghana

I can say that what KubSU taught us has been helpful. I remember our teacher Elena Alexandrovna taught us how to prepare all kinds of budgets such as sales budget, master budget, purchases budget, production budget, fixed assets budget using Microsoft Excel.

Another one is the application of the theories of Public Private Partnership (PPP) by Elena Votchenko. Before the Government undertakes any project with partnership, we check if the project is viable and cost effective by comparing budgeting with actual cost. I apply most PPP principles at the workplace. Again, the Negotiation course is also helpful. We educate the government consultants on how to negotiate the cost of projects. Marketing theories by Ilya Bogdashev are also applied at the Ministry of Local Government  in Ghana, especially at the Budget Department.
