The agreement was signed in the presence of Ilya Solntsev, Head of the Department of Marketing and Sports Business of the Faculty of Higher School of Management of the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation, and Sergey Belykh, Executive Director of Spartak Moscow Football Club.

The partnership provides for work in several areas:

·                     Support of students in educational activities, speeches by the club's speakers, organization of field thematic classes and participation in FinU projects. For example, as part of the cooperation, Spartak's Executive Director Sergey Belykh has already held a lecture for FinU students on the topic "Transformation of the sports club business ",

·                     Career development of students. Students are offered internships with the possibility of further employment. The club and the FinU already have successful cases of cooperation in this area. For example, Alyona Fedorova, a 4th year student of the Department of Marketing and Sports Business at the Faculty of Higher School of Management, completed an internship at FC Spartak Moscow:

"I am very grateful to the university and the club for this opportunity! I had a training and production internship at Spartak and in 2.5 months I gained a lot of experience and new knowledge, because from the very first days I was actively involved in solving various tasks. As a result of the internship I was offered to take part in further projects of the club. Thank you for your trust and this opportunity!"

Active participation in the development of sports life at the University. FC Spartak Moscow cooperates with the student sports club and already has its own ambassador at the University - Dmitry Mishunichev, a 3rd year student at the Faculty of Higher School of Management, Department of Marketing and Sports Business.

"The partnership between the FinU and FC Spartak Moscow is an opportunity for mutual development of both organizations and exchange of experience. It is definitely a step forward. The synergy of joint efforts and ideas will allow students of the FinU to touch the life of the club. Being a Spartak ambassador means a lot to me. It is a great responsibility and an opportunity to interact with organizations that are not indifferent to me," said Dmitry Mishunichev. 

Recently, as part of the partnership, a tour of the LUKOIL Arena was held for representatives of the FinU Student Council, after which the students took part in a quiz on the history of the University and received memorable gifts.

We hope for further fruitful and successful cooperation!
