Sustainable development goals

“The young people for whom we create these projects are our future. On his shoulders will fall the responsibility for the implementation of the sustainable development goals in both Kazakhstan and Russia. We, in turn, can be of use to the younger generations with our energy and knowledge. It is important to open up the possibility of intercultural communication for students”, the acting director is sure. director of IGSU RANEPA Ruslan Korchagin.

“Russia and Kazakhstan, on the one hand, are very similar, but on the other, they differ in many ways,” said Kuanysh Tazabekov, first vice-rector of Turan University. – Significant differences in culture, traditions and much more, but this interaction is interesting. I believe that the format of our partnerships has been optimally chosen, it implies the possibility of expanding and deepening our cooperation, developing new projects and educational programs”.

“I studied at the Academy of National Economy, I wrote my thesis there, so for me the Academy is associated with many warm memories, including a living legend – former rector Abel Aganbegyan,” added the Kazakh scientist.

Zhenisbek Tolen, Head of the Department of Regional Studies and International Relations, and Galiya Fayzullina, Head of the Department of Tourism and Services, spoke about the experience of Turan University. The experience of the Russian Presidential Academy was shared by Elena Kireeva, Dean of the Faculty of Human Resource Management and Public Administration at IGSU RANEPA.

Joint projects

Olesya Shirokova, organizer of the summer school and head of the IGSU RANEPA “Management Consulting” master’s program, notes that the summer school has become the second part of the joint program of IGSU and Turan University. Then, within the framework of the Winter School, the students of the Russian university went to Almaty and met their classmates from Turan University.

“Now the Kazakh students have returned to Moscow,” says the professor. – Since all students participating in the project are representatives of different areas (among them, for example, future civil servants, specialists in personnel management, tourism, international relations), we came up with a common theme for all: “Management of Projects”. . The program is very rich: in the first half of the day, students learn the basics of project management, attend master classes and lectures, and then work on their projects. The task is to come up with and propose a project that will be of interest to both the Kazakh and Russian sides. As far as I know, the guys have different ideas: from the creation of a joint Russian-Kazakh scientific school to the creation of a joint educational platform and joint tourism projects for the exchange of cultural experiences.”

Olesya Shirokova is sure that the student exchange is beneficial from all sides. It is about not only the acquisition of professional knowledge and the exchange of experiences, but also the knowledge of the culture of the neighboring country.

“By the way, I know that all the students who participated in the Winter School in Almaty still actively communicate with each other, including on professional issues. When it all started a year ago, we didn’t know if this project would be successful or not. Therefore, at first there were no global plans for the future. And now we see that the hopes were fully realized, the students of both universities, as well as their teachers, really let themselves go. And most importantly, there are already positive results. Therefore, we naturally want the student exchange program to be more comprehensive, systematic and to take place on a regular basis, at least twice a year. At the same time, it’s not just students who should be involved. For example, there is an idea that this would also be an exchange of teaching experiences, since this is also very important,” says Olesya Shirokova.
