March 20th-21st, the 52nd Moscow International Fair "Education and Career" took place at the “Gostiny Dvor” exhibition center. MGIMO took an active part in the event, held a separate stand and gave a talk to prospective students and their parents.

On the first day of the exhibition, on the platform of the educational marathon "Choose the right path", E.Glushko, Associate Professor of the School of Linguistics and Intercultural Communication, gave a talk devoted to the areas of training at MGIMO University and the specifics of applying for a place in 2021, describing in detail the variety of educational programs and the advantages of studying at MGIMO’s Odintsovo campus.

The guests showed a vivid interest in MGIMO’s stand. Representatives of the University explained to the visitors the specificities of studying at MGIMO, spoke about the socio-cultural life of students, the career prospects of graduates and answered questions about the pre-university training programs organized by MGIMO. The student-volunteers holding the stand noted that applicants were interested in the conditions of admission, the new MA and double degree programs, and their parents asked about the possibilities of further training at the Business School.

The exhibition is held twice a year with the support of the Russian Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Moscow Government. Since 1994 the International Fair "Education and Career" has been held twice a year in Moscow. It is the most widely acknowledged and respected event of this type in educational life of Russia.
