In 2020, the partnership between the University of Pisa and the Presidential Academy has evolved to a new level: the two universities have launched a joint English-language double-degree program, Management for Business and Economics (MBE).
The UNIPI-RANEPA partnership agreement was signed in 2016, initiated by the Faculty of Economics and Management at UNIPI and RANEPA – Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences (FESS) .
The MBE program is the first Russian-Italian double-degree program providing for students to study for four years: UNIPI bachelors students will study three years in Italy and go to Russia for their fourth year. FESS students will take their first and fourth years at RANEPA, and their second and third years at the Faculty of Economics and Management at the University of Pisa.
In addiction to the Double degree Agreement, RANEPA is collaborating with our prestigious University developing joint projects commissioned by international companies such as DeLonghi and PepsiCo, and enabling academic mobility and faculty exchanges: for exemple, 15 Russian students annually come to Pisa, while Italian groups go to RANEPA for a semester under the International Year program, which has been successfully implemented for five years. The Italian students can take specialized disciplines such as Project Management, Global Marketing, Building Business Models, and Economics taught in English, as well as Russian. Students from Pisa also have an opportunity to prepare for and take their English exam at the certified Cambridge Center for International English Examinations.
At the end of their training, students will be awarded two bachelor’s degrees:
- Russian state Bachelor of Management diploma;
- European Bachelor of Management degree issued by the University of Pisa.
Students pay by themselves:
- All travel costs;
- compulsory insurance, including medical insurance;
- expenses meals;
- all costs connected with submitting applications and obtaining relevant visas and transport documents;
- all other expenses incurred during their stay in the host country.
Students don’t pay by themselves: Accomodation expenses in RANEPA campus will be covered by RANEPA for the whole period of exchange.
