The Faculty of Economics

The Faculty of Economics has been founded in 1941, but the tradition of university economic education covers more than 200 years. By the end of the XIX-th century there existed an entire system of economic subjects including the courses in political economy, the economics of industry, agriculture, trade, transport, credit and finance and others.

The Faculty of Economics is very dynamic. Our challenging epoch witnessing the global transformation of Russian society brought about the need for a serious renovation of economic education and the MSU Faculty of Economics was one of the first to meet the challenge.

Today the Faculty of Economics comprises 22 departments and more than 10 laboratories, and has more than 500 tutors and researchers, about 2,000 of full-time and part-time students, more than 400 graduates registered for Ph.D. One of the mentioned-above departments is Risk Management and Insurance department which shall be hosting  18th annual conference of APRIA in Moscow this year. The Faculty has a lot of supplementary structures such as pre-university courses, and short-term programs following the logic of non-stop education. Nevertheless, classical Bachelor's and Master's programs are in the focus of the Faculty's educational activity.
