The beginning of October is in-house classes time. For our present students, their third in-house classes offer the welcome opportunity to meet in person again. They will be taught the modules Globalization, Intercultural Communication, Project Management, and Politics. Our new students will be introduced to the program and in particular to Blackboard. They will start with the modules Introduction & Tools and Intercultural Communication. And they will join in a simulation game. Both groups are invited to a panel discussion on "The EU, Russia and Their Common Neighborhood" with Andrey Makarychev and Andrey Deviatkov. Certainly the highlight of the week will be the graduation ceremony for our eighth run.
