A day of obtaining your diplomas has come and the most important thing is receiving of Master’s degree in financial management that represents ultimate knowledge and professional worth.
Master’s degree is the only one converted degree that is recognized all over the world. MBA degree can be added to Master’s degree, however in this case it also will be Master’s degree «Master of business administration».
You, our graduates, are very lucky – you graduated master studies that was almost the first degree in Russia that obtained international accreditation of the highest quality EPAS/EFMD. This logotype of the international accreditation will acknowledge your professional competence during your career path.
I would like to pay special attention to the fact that «Master in Finance» program obtained international accreditation mainly thanks to its graduates who took an active part in a process of preparation to this important event, and with their intellect, education, view of life, professional experience won support and recognition of European Commission.
Graduates in «Master in financial management» program possess an in-demand profession: they are – financial managers. Nowadays you are just line finance managers. Some of you will work as an portfolio manager, some – as an investment manager, some of you will manage assets, deal with financial and investment analytics, control expenses and property, trade on a capital market successfully. Tomorrow you will hold a position of functional financial managers – auditors and treasurers, - and before long many of you will become financial directors, chief financial officers, chief executive officers of Russian and foreign managers.
It is evident today that two years ago you decided on one of the most difficult master programs, in which current knowledge on management, economics, neoclassical finance and international financial standards were combined. The acquired competences make you demandable specialists whose knowledge and skills largely move ahead of classical ideas of financial management.
I wish you to retain the professional self-consciousness and the special organizational culture that you gained while studying on «Financial management» master program in HSFM RANEPA, to share your knowledge and skills willingly.
I wish you happiness, success and prosperity; may all your wishes and thoughts come true!
