Ekaterinburg is home to one of the Urals‘ oldest universities, namely the-Gorky Urals State University, which was founded in 1920. At present it‘s one of the leading universities in the Urals for developing telecommunications and us­ing computer technology in the teaching process. Within the last few years, Ekat­erinburg institutions of higher education have established fruitful cooperation with leading institutes in Germany, the USA, Italy, Sweden, South Korea, Japan, Belgium, France, and other countries. This cooperation enables students to take a number of courses in foreign in­stitutes remotely through the internet. Ekaterinburg also has one of Russia‘s largest Forestry Institutes. The Ekaterin­burg State Theatre Institute is one of the seven theatre institutes in Russia and is the only institute of this kind in the Ural-Siberian region.

Institutions of Secondary Professional Education

In 2007 Ekaterinburg institutions of higher education plan to produce over 35,000 young specialists, although the actual need for specialists with higher edu­cation is only just over 8,000. At the same time, however, businesses in the Mid-Urals are expected to hire an increasing number of specialists with secondary professional education (around 24,000 specialists), while colleges and other institutions of sec­ondary professional education will produce a little bit more than 11,000 specialists in 2007. The fact that many regional enter­prises have decided to change their busi­ness model and rapidly expand has created this deficit of specialists needed for new business activities of these enterprises.

At present, the Sverdlovsk region is home to 120 establishments which provide secondary professional education, among these are: 52 federal government establish­ments, 18 regional government establish­ments , 21 municipal establishments, 17 non-governmental establishments, and 12 spanisions of institutions of higher educa­tion. Combined, these institutions host approximately 100,000 students.

Business Education

The Ekaterinburg market for business edu­cation is Russia‘s third largest market, be­hind Moscow and St Petersburg, from the viewpoint of its satiation, competition, quality, and number of educational programs. Experts believe that the capacity of this market is approximately one billion ru­bles. The annual monetary surplus is 20%. The Ekaterinburg market for business edu­cation has 160 players. The customer base largely consists of legal entities but at the moment inspaniduals are beginning to show an increasing interest in business education too. Educational programs in accounting, taxation, auditing, business management, sales, marketing, and human resources face the greatest demand. Teaching roles such as coaching and personal/profession­al growth training are developing quickly. The most popular form of study is short-term courses (70% of all programs). Me­dium-term courses occupy a 20% share in the total number of educational programs, with the remaining 10% being long-term courses.

Programs offered in the local business education market are becoming more specialized: stress management, effective task delegation, restaurant management, construction projects management, MBA courses in medicine, innovative hi-tech projects management, and hi-tech.

Science and Education

Alexander Solomatin,

General Director of Great Eurasian University Complex

Great Eurasian University: Success in the 21st Century Lies in Innovative Technology

Business, science and education are three major sectors developing simultaneously but at different speeds. Modern science is in demand for young personnel. Business needs well-educated specialists able to commercialize innovative scientific activity in spheres such as bioengineering, ecology and nanotechnology.

The specialists needed to create an innova­tion economy will only emerge if a solid ed­ucation system is in place, but education lacks funding across the board and partic­ularly when it comes to scientific resourc­es and faculties. Thus we have a chain of knock-on effects whereby education‘s in­ability to produce sufficient numbers of trained specialists adversely affects busi­nesses‘ future prospects. The Great Eur­asian University project unites experts from all three disciplines who have the expertise and readiness to remedy this problem.

In establishing close links with industry the region‘s higher education institutions have opened up new paths of development. Major heavy industry companies such as UGMK, TMK and SUAL have all established links with education. But the develop­ment this has brought is not enough. Still students have practically no where to live, there is no infrastructure to teach foreign students, there is a shortage of teachers due to famously low salaries and a short­age of essential laboratory equipment. These are the obstacles new ideas come up against and, as such, few initiatives are implemented within any sort of speedy timeframe. There are now widespread calls for new higher education institutions to be established, even from senior educational figures such as Stanislav Naboichenko, Di­rector of Ural State Technical University and the Great Euroasian University Complex‘s Vise President. Other Russian regions such as Moscow, Rostov on Don and Krasnoyarsk have been quicker in this realization and are now setting up new universities.

The idea for Ekaterinburg‘s Great Euroa-sian University was first announced at the University Directors‘ Council. It is a project which brings together 13 higher education establishments along with scientists from the Ural branch of the Russian Academy of Science and regional business representa­tives. To be built on a site near Shartash lake, it will feature a technopark, research­education centers and laboratories. This isn‘t just about relocating 13 existing higher education institutions; it will mean a com­pletely new approach to higher education, the teaching at which will be based on the expertise of Russian and in particular Ural specialists. The project‘s aims are clear and ambitious; within 8-10 years the university is to number among Russia‘s top 20 univer­sities, and within 20-25 years be established in international university ratings.

The initial stage of the project, which should cost around 10 million rubles, includes planning and research, general layout preparation, LUP (land use plan­ning, done in partnership with the Ural State Academy of Architecture and Arts) and collecting proposals regarding the planned technopark. Plans for the project envisage 460 hectares of the site being teaching space, while the grounds will also include a range of facilities available for public as well as educational use, includ­ing a library, IT center and medical, sports and entertainment facilities. High security for students‘ accommodation is also a major focus, something which is particularly im­portant in attracting foreign students.

The complex will be built in two stages
