Role of organization in the project
Samara State University of Economics is one of the best examples of a relatively large Russian regional HEI with good position in its own and neighboring regions. It has wide connections with regional and local Russian businesses of both national and smaller scale. SSUE has an active position towards implementing the business-university cooperation methods and bring the educational process align with international standards. At the same time, the HEI is deeply involved into real-life problems and limitation of its regional status, such as limited student base, relatively unchanged list of possible employers, teacher staff mobility issues, administrative staff qualification and similar. These issues are typical for all reginal HEI of Russia. Therefore the role of SSUE in the project is contributing the experience of dealing with these problems to project activities and forming the project outcomes correspondingly.
