Schwezig and Governor of the Leningrad Region A.Yu. DROZDENKO, and honored representatives of the international academic community.

SPbPU double degree programs are taught only in English, which has the status of a universal language in international trade. Under the guidance of leading experts, students will study such disciplines as instruments for regulating international trade; marketing research in trade; investment strategies, e-commerce, international marketing, SMM and a number of other popular areas. Some courses will be taught by visiting professors: for example, the “Instruments of regulation in international trade” will be conducted by a HOST Professor Sholpan Gaisina.

The practical component of the program will be implemented in the project activities and the possibility of internships in Russian and foreign companies. Projects on capital management at trade enterprises, international business communications, media analysis, organization and planning of foreign trade activities are waiting for the students. Russian students will take technological and manufacturing internships at the German Insellogistic Rügen&Hiddensee GmbH Cmo, while the German students will undergo internships at X5 Retail Group.

The list of specialties is huge: experts of contract departments, customs brokers, specialists of foreign economic departments, employees of economic analysis and forecasting departments of trading companies, etc.
