Sergei Glazyev, Minister in charge of Integration and Macroeconomics of the Eurasian Economic Commission, and Gulnara Kurenkeeva, Rector of the Almaty Management University (AlmaU), discussed cooperation between the Eurasian Economic Union countries in the scientific and educational sphere and the improvement of the Eurasian Network University. The meeting took place on February 3 in Almaty.
The Almaty Management University is a member of the Eurasian Network University established last year. Today the ENU includes 19 universities across all the EAEU countries.
As Sergei Glazyev emphasized, the logic of integration processes pushes for the need to develop cooperation between the EAEU countries in the academic sphere.
Besides, Sergei Glazyev emphasized the significant role of the Almaty Management University in this process as a university with high experience in business education in the CIS space.
"Human capital is a strategic resource, and it is impossible to enter the trajectory of sustainable growth without its development", the EEC Minister noted. "In this regard, it is important to intensify interaction between the Eurasian Network University participants in the field of professional training for the EAEU common labor market".
The EEC Minister got acquainted with the Almaty Management University and its scientific and methodological framework. The University’s representatives presented the curriculum for undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students, as well as professional retraining programs developed for specialists, entrepreneurs and managers.
In turn, Sergei Glazyev handed over to the University's library fund the textbook "Eurasian Economic Integration: Theory and Practice" elaborated by the Eurasian Economic Commission with the scientific support of Universities-Participants of the Eurasian Network University.
“We hope that the textbook will contribute to developing interaction between the Union countries in the field of education”, the EEC Minister said.
The Memorandum of Understanding on Establishing the Eurasian Network University was signed by rectors of the EAEU countries’ leading universities on the sidelines of the Eurasian Economic Forum held on May 25, 2022 in Bishkek.
Cooperation of the EAEU countries in vocational education is provided for in paragraphs 10.1 and 10.2 of the Strategic Directions for Developing the Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025. The implementation mechanisms in this field are aimed at further developing the single labor market in the EAEU.
The textbook “Eurasian Economic Integration: Theory and Practice” describes in detail the legal framework, formats and practice of working out coordinated and balanced decisions by the EAEU States in all functional areas of integration development. The book was co-authored by the EEC officials and employees. The Working Group for preparing the book was headed by Sergei Glazyev, EEC Minister in charge of Integration and Macroeconomics, Doctor of Economics, Professor, and Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The textbook is intended for bachelors, undergraduate and graduate students, as well as university professors in such areas as international economic relations, state and municipal management, and international law.
The Almaty Management University (AlmaU) was founded in 1988 and is one of the CIS leaders in business education, graduating new generation managers. The University succeeded in teaching management to entrepreneurs in the Republic of Kazakhstan, it has the first MBA and DBA programs in the Republic of Kazakhstan, and the best teaching staff and sought-after graduates.
