Concept: Eurasia Economic School is organized for students whose fields of study are economics, international relations, history and geography. Prospects for Eurasian integration processes between Russia and Germany and other countries, based on long history and traditions of industrial potential of the Ural region.

Aims: To form a vision among the students and young specialists (who are interested in regional development) of the social and economics position of the Middle Urals, as a bridge between European and Asian interests.

Main issues of the Eurasia Economic School:

  1. International dialogue on the problems of industrial policies of Russia and Germany
  2. Meeting the position and tendencies of the Russian corporate sector development
  3. Getting knowledge about the Ural region, its history and industrial development, economic development, opportunities for Russian-German business cooperation in the Urals
  4. Project skills
  5. Development of soft skills: critical thought, creativity, teamwork coordination etc.

The educational program includes industrial tourism: visiting the enterprises and organizations in the Ural region, which makes the education process interactive, based on practical cases of doing business in the Ural region. In addition, participants of the Summer school will meet with German experts, who work at the enterprises of Ekaterinburg and the Ural region.

The main idea is to provide opportunities for participants to get information (additional economic knowledge), that is not included in the Universities programs.

In addition to intensive educational course, the participants will have trainings on intercultural communication. They will participate in the cultural program that includes excursions to historical places, visiting the border between Europe and Asia, museums and other.

In addition, the Eurasia Economic School provides sport facilities; participants can try themselves in one of the offered sport types such climbing, shooting or fitness.

The organization committee of the Summer school suggests that German students will learn more about the industrial development in the Ural region, the mechanisms for business development available in Russia, they will establish contacts with Russian companies, students and regional authorities, which may be important for the participants’ career development. This is particularly important as globalization makes economic borders between countries more transparent. Therefore, it is important to communicate with people of other nationalities in search of common ground to find solutions and answers to common issues, both economic and political.
