The Principal also encouraged faculties from both sides to strengthen academic exchanges, and invited CUEB students to study at MIRBIS’s MBA program and attend short-term MBA training courses in Moscow.
Since the partnership was officially established in 2011, the two sides have already harvested fruitful results in the co-training of MBA talents, academic exchanges among faculties and so on, as Xu Fang said. CUEB would like to take advantage of its role as the Belt and Road National Talents Training Base and a member of the Association of Sino-Russian Economic Universities to tighten bilateral pragmatic cooperation with MIRBIS.
