Greeting from Secretary-General of the Commission of the Russian Federation for UNESCO Grigory Ordzhonikidze

The State University of Management makes a significant contribution to strengthening international relations: since the SUM foundation day international students are trained annually at the university. International scientific and educational conferences and forums held by the SUM become discussion and innovation platforms for a fruitful experience exchange between world researchers and management experts.

Nowadays, when innovative, digital technologies are integrated in all spheres of our society, including international relations, educational and scientific initiatives cannot be more relevant. The SUM initiated and held successfully the International Scientific Forum ‘Stepping into the Future: Artificial Intelligence and Digital Economy’ that was held under the auspices of the Commission of the Russian Federation for UNESCO. The UNESCO Chair ‘Societal, Legal and Ethical Frameworking of Knowledge Societies’ was launched on the basis of the university. The university joined the UN Youth Model Programme.
