The Faculty’s Board of Trustees was created in 2019. The Faculty now has a pool of partners from big companies, with each of whom we have a unique relationship. Cooperation with partners of such high caliber requires detailed elaboration of each project, close collaboration, and more company involvement in the faculty life. That is why creation of the Board of Trustees is an important step in this direction.
The Board’s aims:
- Expect evaluation and recommendation by leading companies on various directions of Faculty’s development aimed at increasing competitiveness and management efficiency
- Promoting scientific, educational and innovative achievements of the Faculty
- Attracting additional funding for the Faculty’s development
The Board’s members:
CEO of Yandex Group, Chair of the Faculty’s Board of Trustees
