MGIMO Opens a Private Equity Centre

June 20th, MGIMO Rector Anatoly Torkunov held a meeting with the CEO of Inventis Investment Holdings (Singapore) Yong Kwek Ping. The parties reached an agreement regarding the creation at the University of a Private Equity Education Centre, on the basis of which subjects related to private equity and entrepreneurial finance will be taught.

Discussions regarding the creation of the Centre started in April this year when Yong Kwek Ping for the first time met with the leadership of MGIMO and delivered a lecture to students of the University. To date, there are no similar training centres in Russian universities. Its creation at MGIMO under the headship of Mr. Yong, a renowned world authority in the field, will allow the University to expand its practice-oriented graduate and postgraduate education.
