More about the university's programs

Salma Ramadan, Ecuador. The graduate of the Faculty of Economics and Finance with a degree in World Economy

I applied through the Russian embassy in Ecuador. The process was difficult because there were many people and few study spots. I had good grades, and I did my best to get a spot. Rostov-on-Don was a clear choice for me. It's all about climate. The university choice was also clear. I always wanted to study at a university for economics, and RINH turned out to be the best one in this field. It provides high-quality education and employs good teachers. I've already made up my mind to embark on Master's studies, work within my degree field, and I want to stay in Russia.

During the first year of my studies, I took part in some scientific conferences and projects and educational initiatives, won the contest of research papers and the Moscow International Model UN, and became a laureate of the Russian National Award “Student of the Year 2020” in the Best International Student category. First of all, I am grateful for all these opportunities to my university.

Momoh Abubakar, Nigeria. The second-year Master’s student pursuing a degree in World Economy at the Faculty of Economics and Finance

I found out about RSUE (RINH) from my friends and decided to apply on a commercial basis. The staff of the Department of International Cooperation helped me get comfortable at the beginning of my university studies. They are very friendly and communicative people. That's why my adaptation was easy. I like studying at the university. The teachers are always ready to give you a helping hand. The administrative staff is also great.

What I like most about my university studies is the teaching method. I can meet and talk to any teacher at the university without worrying about lack of attention. The people are awesome here. I also like my classes, they are always interesting.

Definitely, one of the things making RSUE special compared to other universities in Rostov and the South of Russia is that everyone, including students and the Dean’s Office, is ready to help you and gladly meets you halfway. And the Department of International Cooperation is one of my favorite university departments. The staff members treat you like their friend and make you understand and feel that they respect you. I want to respect them twice as much for that.
