October 13, a Swiss delegation consisting of representatives of companies successfully operating in Russian markets, including the Ural region, paid a friendly visit to USUE.
One of the goals of the business visit of the Swiss delegation is to hold talks on the development of new areas of trade, economic and investment cooperation.
The delegation headed by Tobias Privitelli, Deputy Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Swiss Confederation to Russia, met with USUE rector Yakov Silin. After a friendly introductory conversation, the guests held a roundtable with USUE students, in particular, with master’s students interested in foreign economic activity.
The Swiss part was represented by specialists in the field of machine building, pharmaceuticals, logistics, chemical industry, finance and services, construction materials production, and tourism industry.
The students listened to the head of a Swiss private bank Mato Matosevic, CEO of FISCHER Spindle Technology Michael Yakovets, and a Roche manager for interaction with public authorities Svetlana Beznasyuk.
The speakers focused the attention of young people on the fact that it was they who would continue the industrial revolution, take full advantage of digitalization tools being introduced today, and contribute to the prosperity of their country. For that to happen, not only professional knowledge is important but also a great desire to develop and create something new, be erudite in different fields, and study foreign languages.
Addressing students, he also noted that the current level of globalization of the world economy required them to have high academic performance and versatile knowledge, which were necessary to get on student exchange programs for an internship at the best companies in Switzerland and take an inside look at how successful Swiss economy runs..
