The guests had a meeting with the Dean of Henley Business School John Board and with his Deputy Elena Kalyuzhnova. The parties discussed the ways to deepen their cooperation at Bachelor, Master and Post-graduate levels. They also spoke about exchanges of students and faculty members. December 27th, representatives of Henley Business School will deliver a refresher course on new PhD defense procedures for lecturers and professors of MGIMO University.
