The Business School project with the support of member companies of the AEB Southern Regional Committee


From April 19 to 29, 2022, the final events of the 2021-2022 academic year took place within the framework of the Business School project, which is being implemented with the support of companies of the AEB Southern Regional Committee. 

Business School graduation certificates were awarded to 94 students and 13 teachers of four universities. More than 600 students have become graduates of the Business School since the project was implemented. Many of them are employees of AEB companies today.

The Business School project was initiated by the Rector of the Kuban State Agricultural University Alexander Trubilin and the Chairman of the Southern Regional Committee of the Association of European Businesses Oleg Zharko in June 2014. Already in May 2015, the first graduation of the Business School took place, and in September 2015, the project was presented at the All-Russian meeting of rectors of agricultural universities.
Today this unique project is being implemented with the support of 14 companies of the Southern Regional Committee of the Association of European Businesses in four leading universities of Southern Russia – Kuban State Agricultural University, Kuban State Technological University, Kuban State University and Southern Federal University (Rostov-on-Don).

The rich educational program ranges from 90 to 100 hours of classroom classes and is developed by a special working group of HR managers and directors of participating companies. It includes lectures by leading practitioners of companies participating in the project, tasks for solving business cases, excursions to enterprises and holding business games. The students at the Business School are students of 3-4 bachelor's degree courses and 1-2 master's degree courses, which are selected on a competitive basis.

The business school at the Kuban State Agricultural University received its further development in 2021: a separate program was developed and implemented for a group of university teachers, which is also formed based on the results of a competitive selection. There is a mentoring institute.
The Business School project is a new form of interaction between universities and employers. The university management invariably emphasizes the importance of this educational project, since for students it is not just an opportunity for an open dialogue with top managers and specialists of leading companies in the South of Russia, an important practical experience in the development of professional competencies acquired during the educational process at the university, but also an opportunity to build a further successful career.
