Recently, a presentation of the integrated educational complex “History for Economists” was held at MSU, edited by the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Center for International Trade and President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation Sergei Katyrin and the Director of MSE MSU, Academician Alexander Nekipelov. One of the project coordinators was Alexander Rybakov, Advisor to the Director General of WTC.
The educational complex for students of economic specialties was developed for five years by leading economists and teachers of the M. V. Lomonosov Moscow School of Economics of Moscow State University with the support of the company "Rosneft". It is based on an integrated approach to the study of Russian and world history and identifying the interrelations of economic, political, social, and cultural processes. An important feature of the publication is the shift of emphasis from the dry enumeration of facts to the explanation of historical processes, as well as the whole system of teaching materials in digital format.
Dmitri Kurochkin, Vice President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation, said that this publication is an important and sought-after project that will form a deep understanding of economic processes. “The civilized and chronological approaches taken as a basis in this edition reveal the comprehensive picture of the emergence of states and Russia as well as possible, which rarely did anyone manage before,” said Dmitri Kurochkin. He also noted that the project would not have taken place without the constant personal participation of the President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation Sergei Katyrin and Advisor to the Director General of the International Trade Center, Alexander Rybakov.
Alexander Rybakov, in turn, thanked all the project participants – the authors, scientific editors, and partners of the training complex for their enormous work in preparing the publication. He expressed sincere admiration for the approach implemented in it, namely, consideration of economic issues in space and time, in close connection with historical and political processes, requiring searching, analyzing, and comparing a huge amount of materials, facts, and documents.
Representatives spoke more about the work of the various faculties of Moscow State University. They noted the importance of creating such a textbook for the younger generation of economists. With its impressive volumes, the two-volume book preserves the integrity and ease of perception thanks to a simple and interesting language of presentation. And Gennady Bordyugov, President of the Association of Researchers of the Russian Society (ARRO-XXI), emphasized that the text of the publication is accompanied by additional multimedia files on each of the points, thus giving students the opportunity to go beyond the textbook and expand their knowledge.
