Winter School Opening Ceremony

On March 26, 2021, the Winter School at the University of Grenoble Alps was launched online for FinU bachelor’s degree students studying "Economics and Management".

The ceremony was opened by the French side. Professor Alain Laurent thanked all partners of the University of Grenoble Alps for their active participation in the program and noted the growing interest of students in programs implemented online. Professor Farouk Ulgen stressed the importance of strengthening inter-university partnerships in education and science for the development of international relations. Professor Ulgen also noted that cooperation is the most important and effective way to overcome all barriers and called on partners to actively participate in the already existing projects and come up with new ideas for future joint projects.

Financial University was represented by Deputy Head of the International Cooperation Office Alexey Sereda, who thanked the French colleagues for their long-term collaboration and expressed the hope that the next program would take place in a more traditional face-to-face format.

I should confess, when I saw that the Winter School will be held online, I got concerned that students were tired of working online, and they would simply not be interested in it. However, within a few hours since the announcement of the program, I received almost 20 applications. The keen interest expressed by students in the Winter School is, to a greater extent, joint efforts of the Faculty of Economics team of the University of Grenoble Alps together with their magnificent administration

Despite the fact that the program is implemented online due to the continuing restrictions, it has not affected its high quality and diversity.

The students are expected to attend various lectures and presentations from French companies based in Grenoble. 

Upon completing the Winter School, all participants will receive certificates.

Friendly reminder to seniors and and 1st year master’s degree students: application process to joint educational programs with the University of Grenoble Alps is to begin shortly!
