   - the program has been held by professionals and not simply professors; valorization of practical skills than mere theory;
   - a broad range of topics; they seem to be fair in order to have a picture of Russian's business context;
   - diverse teaching's methods; visits to companies, meeting with experts are strong points.

"Doing business in Russia" course was taught by experienced professors. We learned Russian business culture not only by case studies in classrooms, but also by making field trips to Russian companies. Besides we worked on making some presentations about interesting topics with nice classmates who have various backgrounds. I believe that this course is very useful for those who will start business in Russia in the future".
