Today, there is a problem of breaking the required and existing competencies of employees in the field of state and municipal administration, and the effectiveness of the implementation of National projects is insufficient in modern reality.

In addition, the frequency of updating tools and methods for solving managerial problems is disproportionately high in comparison with the rate of updating of general educational training programs at universities in the country.

To bridge this gap, the Far Eastern Federal University, on the basis of the 31 School of Economics and Management, in October 2019 launches an educational program for training state personnel of the new formation of Master of Public Administration (MPA), which has no analogues in Russia, which will become a solution in this situation.

The goal of the program is to contribute to the achievement of the targets of the National Projects of the Russian Federation in the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District and their inclusion in the TOP-30 of the National Investment Climate Rating by forming a higher personnel asset through the selection, training of civil servants and potential development leaders capable of shaping a qualitatively new reality of the Far East.

A new interdisciplinary educational program will allow developing a wide range of professional and supra-professional competencies of managerial personnel. MRA complies with international management training standards.

Potential students will undergo screening tests, including a motivational essay, professional testing to determine the profile of managerial competencies and an individual interview.

One of the main features of the Master of Public Administration (MPA) educational program at FEFU is the construction of an individual development path for each program participant. The listener will be assigned a mentor from the state structure, development institute or non-profit organization, within which the graduation project is being implemented.

During the academic year, students will receive educational modules from leading Russian academics, practitioners and business trainers in the field of implementing national projects, managing the investment climate in the region, using “data” for making managerial decisions, developing service and d-thinking, effective leadership , cross-cultural communications, taking into account the specifics of East Asian countries.

Multistage competitive selection and a unique educational program will make it possible to form and prepare 25 students who can become leaders in the changes in the Russian Far East.

Key partners of the program: the Analytical Center under the Government of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic, the Association of Youth Governments of Russia, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (Bank of Russia) and the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI).

Start of the program 31 October 2019 year. Learn more at
