The meeting included the discussion of evaluation (“nostrifikatsiya”*) of graduate and post-graduate degrees (Candidate and Doctor) held by Faculty members of IPAHRM and other departments and institutes within RANEPA.
As the Chief Academic Officer of Extra Credit International LLC, a US-based company providing distance learning solutions for working adults, Dr. Alexander Agafonov also discussed his experience with developing and implementing cooperative Russian-American distance learning programs.  An agreement was reached during the meeting to start developing the framework for enrolling foreign students into IPAHRM’s Master’s degree programs.
