Diploma Award Ceremony

Financial University congratulates alumni and wishes them success in their future endeavours! 

On May 18, 2021, a diploma award ceremony for the alumni of the double-degree online program with the University Grenoble Alpes was held at the Financial University.

The joint bachelor’s degree program with the University Grenoble Alpes has been implemented since 2016. The joint master’s degree programs in “Management of Organisations within the Framework of International Cooperation” (GODI) and “Management of Human Resources and Economic Changes in Enterprises” (RHO2C) have been implemented since 2019. Despite being implemented online, the programs are very popular not only among FinU students but also among FinU applicants. 

In the academic year 2019/2020, 23 undergraduate and 8 graduate students successfully completed the programs.

The ceremony was opened by Alexander Linnikov, Vice-Rector for International Cooperation of the Financial University.

Dear students, you have worked hard to get a diploma from one of the leading universities in France. This invaluable knowledge and experience you have gained will help you choose the right professional path

In addition, Karine Samuel, Vice-President Outreach and International Relations, joined the virtual meeting and welcomed the students, noting that the management of the University Grenoble Alpes pays special attention to the development and support of distance learning and looks forward to further cooperation in this area.

Natacha Collet and Valentina Kulshan, Coordinators of International Programs at the University of Grenoble Alpe of the Faculty of Economics, noted the high level of academic training of the FinU students.

During the ceremony, Pascal Sliwanski, Consul General of France in St. Petersburg also congratulated the alumni.

It is of crucial importance to maintain and develop these programs at the state level, because this helps strengthen friendly Russian-French relations in general
