Rector’s Address to the Participants of the Education of the Future: New Professionals for the New Economy International Scientific-Methodical Conference
Acting on behalf of the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation and on my own behalf, I am glad to welcome participants and guests of the traditional Education of the Future: New Professionalsl for the New Economy International Conference.
The academic community and employers continue cooperating in order to develop the national qualifications framework, modern professional standards and update programs of study taking into account innovation economics requirements.
The Financial University was one of the founders of the Council for Professional Qualifications of Financial Market Experts. The University led the efforts to harmonize professional standards’ requirements and the education system. In 2016, the Center for Examination and Updating of Professional and Educational Standards was formed at the Council for Professional Qualifications of Financial Market Experts.
We implemented a large-scale project in 2017. Federal state educational standards were examined and approved, a methodology was developed needed for updating of the programs of study, a sectoral qualifications framework was formed. The efforts will continue in 2018. The research conferences scheduled for this year will allow us to organize efficient communication between all participants, build a venue for interaction of practitioners, scholars, instructors, researchers, employers, and experts.
I wish all Conference participants to make efforts fruitful, to have helpful discussions and achieve the goals set.
Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation
