Success for Russian managers

The innovative Master in Business Administration (MBA) course is run with the Tyumen State University, with staff from both institutions providing tuition in Russia.

The Russian managers, most of whom have first degrees from Tyumen State University, praised the practical nature of the MBA, and the wide experience of the academic staff from the University of Wolverhampton Business School.

Professor Dom Wilson, Dean of the University of Wolverhampton Business School, said: "We are delighted by the success of these Russian students, and we plan to continue developing our links with Tyumen State University in the key areas of practitioner development and knowledge transfer, which are particular strengths of the University of Wolverhampton Business School. We wish these most recent Business School graduates every success in their future careers."

The joint degree programme was developed over the four years with the help of funding from the British Council's BRIDGE programme, and is the latest example of co-operation between the two institutions.

The universities in Wolverhampton and Tyumen have worked together on the development of English teaching programmes, environmental science projects, and several EU funded collaboration programmes for nearly 20 years.
