The USUE rector of Yakov Silin opened the event. He congratulated all those present on the holiday and summed up the year 2018: “Every year I both congratulate you, dear colleagues, and talk about the work we have done. 2018 was a success. We succeeded a lot. Thank you all very much. Whatever position you hold, thanks to your efforts the University has reached a higher level.”
Awarding of the best employees of the year traditionally brightened up the gala evening. Honorary diplomas of the Head of the Yekaterinburg Administration for a significant contribution to the training of high-skilled personnel and many years of diligent work were awarded to Irina Vlasova, Ph.D. in Economics, an associate professor at the Department of Accounting and Audit; Alexander Panchenko, Ph.D. in Economics, an associate professor at the Department of Labor economics and HR management; and Victor Pischulov , Doctor of Economics, professor at the Department of Financial Markets and Banking.
Irina Vlasova noted: "I am happy to receive an award in the walls of USUE because I love my job very much. I studied at SINH, at the Department of Industry Planning but I had enough knowledge and skills to do accounting and auditing in future. I am grateful to the teaching staff because they provided me with major research and practical base and this knowledge was very useful. I want to emphasize that at the time when I was a student and now our University graduates competitive specialists."
