Prague spring

Hello everyone! My name is Dasha and I am studying in Prague at the moment, by the medium of the R.A.D. program. This story has started after attending one of lectures about FMB international programs. Being a second-year student, I decided to use such opportunity and here I am now in Czech Republic.

A couple of words about my life in Prague. The study lasts for about two days per week, so as you can see, we still have enough time for strolling and travelling. Prague is a marvelous city with exciting story and not less pleasant geographical placement, thus many European cities would be available for you.

Also a posteriori with more than a half of a year of living here, Id never advice anyone to go here and study without the first education, like my personal one at FMB. From my point of view, the educational approach, that our professors offered us in Omsk, was better than the other one, that is practiced here in American university. I guess, its reasonable to arrive here with some knowledge basis. Studying here is a very interesting experience! But in my humble opinion, this education is good only as the additional to my previous one. If you have any questions concerning the study in Prague, at the UNYP or you just need an advice from your old mate, who went through one school of life and who is facing with another one now - I will be glad to help you. You can find me in social media and text without any doubts! I would be as useful as I could!

Good luck in all your projects!

With respect,

Dasha Chopozova.

Our man in Texas

My name is Mirakyan Karlen and I am a forth-year student at the International Bussiness Department of Omsk State University. Due to the meaningful department's experience of the students' exchange I have an opportunity to spend first half-year at the University of Texas in Arlington and make my american dream come true.

Arrival and first days:

The Arlington belongs to the aglomeration Dallas-Fort-Ward and situates in the heart of sandy Texas. I have arrived to the international airport Fort-Ward the most busy one in the whole Texas on the 24th of August. I was met by a cordial volunteer from UTA, who helped me with package receiving and brought me to the hostel named - Arlington Hall. Firstly, I was given the student card, which gives an access not only to my own room, but also to many important buildings of the university campus: a library, a sport center and etc.

Our lessons started on the 27th, so I had got several days to cope with all my documentary and place-to-live-in deals. I was helped with it a lot by workers of Office of International Education, whom I was very thankful. They give a full support for all exchange students, offering free trips to supermarkets and organising different events many times a month.


Lessons were close to start and I should have visited the College of Business where, by the way, I spend most of studying time now. Here I ought to have chosen subjects that I was interested in and create my own schedule (such freedom of actions is one of features that strongly distinguishes educational systems of USA and Russia). Thus, there are no groups here that are attending lessons together for the whole term.

Studying process is connected with the constant interactive communication between teachers and students. I was astonished once a professor changed the lessons theme, given in advance, to devote time for discussing the event which happened just an hour before the lesson.

Another feature, that impressed me, is the high degree of computerization of the studying process. For USA universities students there is the general web-site called BLACKBOARD which you can use to discover the information about all hometasks, ranks, upcoming exams and other parts of studying. Moreover, there are official resources whereby you can make your homework or even pass an exam online!


Every hostel has its own kitchen, where you could prepare a student breakfast, lunch or dinner any time. But because of the fact that unlike Russian students, the cooking abilities of local students spread on warming the food at the microwave if the best happened, the university offers such an option like the Meal Plan. Using it you are able to visit the main cafe of the university with selection up to 7 different kitchens and to more than 10 fast-food restaurants, locating in the campus, with the same success.


Of course, I was keen on comparison not only between studying and routine characteristics between various universities, but also I wanted to dive into the atmosphere of popular students parties. An Administration of the University and many student fraternities set up numerous events on a regular base, like Oozeball, Wafflopoles, Convocation and others, so I was pretty satisfied with a choice and a quality of an available assortment.

Here in UTA I constantly meet new people, visit exciting places and spend my studying and free time with great pleasure. Even now I am pretty sure that studying here is not just novel feelings for me, but also the meaningful experience, which actually will be useful in the future. Due to the OmSU and UTA, I managed to make my American dream come true.

RAD department of SIB (Omsk State University) offers Business Ethics Course in English.

The study of what standards businesses should observe in their dealings over and above compliance with the letter of the law. This covers questions such as fair dealing with their labour force, customers, suppliers, and competitors, and the impact of their activities on public health, the environment, and animal welfare.

If a good reputation helps to gain and retain business, ethical conduct need not necessarily conflict with profit, but there are bound to be cases where it does. Particularly difficult questions of business ethics arise in multinational firms, where practices such as gifts to officials, which are essential to doing business at all in some countries, are regarded as criminal in others.

We invite SIB students and those who are interested in Business Ethics.

Price for the Fall term 7200 RUB.

Noel Lockley, an English Gentleman

It is with a great deal of sadness that we announce the death of one of our most recent teachers at FMB, Noel Lockley.

Noel was the perfect English gentleman, always polite, quiet and often unassuming, but with a keen, dry sense of humour and an infectious laugh. Always open, relaxed and at ease, he embodied a constant optimism that smoothed over any 'bumps in the road'.

Noel will be remembered for his dedication and enthusiasm as a teacher, his love for his students and his ever-present friendliness to all who came into contact with him.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his lovely wife, Marina, and his family back in England. May his soul rest in peace.
