    Russians are coming

    RF

    Education chief pushes universities to set pp affiliates overseas
    MOSCOW - Export of Russian educational services will increase by no less than 1,000% in the next few years. The prediction was made yesterday by Vladimir Filippov, Russia's education minister, at a press conference on modernizing Russian education , Rosbalt reported. In the view of the minister, Russia earns far too little from export of educational services. 'The US earns approximately USD 433 million a year for training foreign students, while we make a total of USD 2-2.3 million,' he said.

    In his view, Russian higher education is entirely competitive in terms of the international educational market. 'We offer a very attractive package of quality and price,' Filippov noted. 'To make this [increase] a reality, we have to create a mechanism to guarantee the quality of education so that a Russian diploma from an institution of higher learning is accepted throughout the world,' the minister said.

    He believes that attracting foreign students to Russian higher education involves, 'not stepping up efforts to attract foreign students to come to our institutions of higher learning,but creation of our own network of daughter institutions of Russian universities and institutes abroad.' As teachers , the minister noted, it would be best to attract graduates of Russian institutions of higher learning. It will also be necessary to translate Russian curricula into foreign languages. Filippov is convinced that Russian education will be sought, first of all, in Third World countries-of Africa and Asia as well as in China. /RBC/

    This is old news and 1 year 9 months passed, is this the WIDU?

    creation of our own network of daughter institutions of Russian universities and institutes abroad.'

    Let's hope, for Russia's sake, that the people running that country's educational export enterprises are not the same ones who've been running its submarine fleet.

    I see you have lots of respect to Russian education system.
    In worse case scenario if their educational export sincs the Brits or we will come to the rescue.

    Actually, I was thinking more in terms of the most recent Russian sub mishap in which everyone was saved, yet the Russian navy's general ineptitude was, yet again, demonstrated.

    And even if I wasn't, I disagree. There has been a more-than-sufficient passage of time since the Kursk incident; and it's not like we're sitting around, making dead-guy-in-a-sunken-sub jokes, here. Relax. Have a beer... or, better yet, a Stoli.

    I think a DL degree in philosophy from Kaliningrad would be pretty cool. In fact, I kan't think of anything cooler.

    First joke came from Putin himself: "What happened to Kursk? - It sank!"

    More to the topic: exporting Russian education makes perfect sense. I doubt that burocrats can pull it off, though.

    So we're talking about a sort of University of Phoenix , Russian style? They're going to export their education system and create local universities in ?Western nations?
    HUGE start up costs.
    HUGE competition.
    Why would anyone go to a start up Russian school rather than an established local or established DL school?
    Novel curriculum?
    Cheaper?
    I'd say that they should stick with the established Russian schools and create DL programs run from the main campuses. It would be a larger benefit to their own people and could still, potentially, attract interested foreigners for that Russian Existentialism program (for example).

    Isn't that in keeping with Russian culture? I suppose my list of friends isn't overflowing with Russians, but the few I do know seem to share a vastly amusing but rather dark sense of humor.

    I agree. DL degrees from existing Russian universities could be very appealing.

    It's certainly an interesting idea.

    So, how do Russian universities match up against one another? Which are considered the most prestigious? Is there any sort of list of rankings?

    Gregg's addition to Jack's list: Greater statistical likelihood of Russian mob involvement and, therefore, a higher marginal propensity for identity theft... among other unpleasant things?
