Internationally renown experts, prominent representatives of the business world, Russian and foreign state and public figures are expected to teach students how to resolve real business problems.
Vladimir Putin emphasised that this project is supported by and will continue to be supported by the state through to the national project, Education, but it is being carried out exclusively by private initiative and using private money.
