In December 1998 the MIREA Academic Council made a decision to establish the Economics and Management Faculty. In 2014, it was transformed into the Economics and Management Institute, and in 2015 received its modern name, the Institute of Innovative Technologies and Public Administration (IITPA).
Alumni can become entrepreneurs
IITPA students acquire enough knowledge and skills to start their own businesses, as special classes are held with that possibility in mind. For example, entrepreneur and business evangelist Anatoly Borodin regularly gives talks to students about the practical fundamentals of business, while employees of the ConsultantPlus firm explain to them how to set up a limited liability company or a sole proprietorship and to have them registered.
More than 70-year-long experience in education
Although modern IITPA’s official institution date is considered to be 1998, its history goes back to 1947, when a Department of Economic Theory (formerly, the Department of Political Economy) was established. At present, that department successfully continues to function as part of the Institute. Thus, IITPA has a record of more than 70-year-long experience in training economists.
Institute-sponsored academic contests and competitions
Hundreds of students look forward to the traditional events held by IITPA, among them the annual Olympiad in Micro- and Macroeconomics, the Olympiad in Higher Mathematics, the conference “Institutional Problems of Modern Russian Economy,” an annual contest for the best research article by a student or young scholar, and others.
