14 Jun MoveON set to support internationalisation in Russia
The QS Wordwide Higher Education Conference at RUDN University, Moscow, played host to a new partnership between QS Quacquarelli Symonds Ltd and Saint Petersburg State University of Economics (UNECON).
At the event on the 23rd May 2018 a binding letter of intent was signed between Nunzio Quacquarelli, CEO, QS and Dmitry Vasilenko, Vice-Rector for International Relations at UNECON. This new relationship sees MoveON becoming the technology platform of choice for UNECON to help manage their internationalisation strategy. UNECON, one of the leading Russian universities with over a century experience in educating top professionals in economics and management, intends to adopt MoveON to improve structure and quality assurance in response to increased international activity.
Dimitri Vasilenko shares: “UNECON puts International Mobility ahead of all other international activities, everything is based on it. Managing international mobility means huge amounts of paperwork, so we were looking for the solution that could make our life easier (or at least more structured). MoveON mobility management tool was the perfect fit for us to keep our activities flowing. It was for both UNECON and myself a pleasure and honor to be the first Russian university to join the MoveON family. We look forward to working together!”
UNECON will join the ranks of UC Berkeley, USA, University of Essex, UK, and more than 300 other universities from around the world who use MoveOn tools to help support student, staff and partner relations. Nunzio Quacquarelli, QS CEO, adds:: “We are delighted that UNECON is the first institution in Russia to use MoveON. With mobility support being at the core of what we do at QS Unisolution we see great alignment in our vision. The MoveON platform will support the management of their student and staff data and enhance the quality of international practices. We are honoured to welcome UNECON to the MoveON community”.
Implementation is due to start this summer.
