There are thousands of Indian students coming to study Medicine in Russia along with Malaysians and students from other parts of Asia and Africa. However, what is the standard of Russian education when compared to the US, UK, CA, the EU or even India and Australia? By all accounts students come to study Medicine in Russia not for the quality but for the degree and the low fee.

The number of students that seek education outside their respective countries (or “mobile students” to use the UNESCO classification) in the past three decades has more than quadrupled (from 0.8 million in 1975 to 3.7 million in 2009). UNESCO notes three main jumps in student mobility between 1975 and 2004. During the first rise (1975–1980), the total number of mobile students increased by 30 percent, growing from 0.8 to 1.04 million. The next boom happened between 1989 and 1994, when mobility increased by 34 percent. A third wave between 1999 and 2004 saw a 41 percent increase.

In the past decade, international mobility among students has continued to grow. While in 2007, the global total of foreign students amounted to 2.8 million, it increased to 3.7 million in 2009. This mobility is forecast to reach 5.8 million by 2020 and 8 million by 2025. Today we may be witnessing a fourth wave in the “internationalization of university education” under the influence of the broader economic and social globalization and internationalization.

International mobility among students is supported by a variety of programs (ERASMUS, SOCRATES, and Nordplus in Europe, for example) and can take different forms: from completing a full course at a university in another country to participating in language programs. International academic mobility is further incentivized by specialized services supporting the export of education and academic exchanges of professors and students, such as, for example, France’s Edu France, Egide, or Germany’s DAAD.

China has the largest number of outgoing students (almost 421,100), followed by India (153,300) and South Korea (105,300).

Asia today is one of the larger suppliers of “young brains”

Russia’s Soft Power Potential in Internationalizing Higher Education
Russia has been successful in creating a CIS university network (for MA students). Its objective is to emulate and implement a program similar to Erasmus Mundus within the single education space of the CIS countries. Proposed in 2008, the university network consortium now consists of 16 leading institutions from 8 countries: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan and Ukraine.

Now the SCO has a similar university network, where the partnership promotes collaboration between Russian, Chinese and Kazakh universities.
Russia’s education potential has traditionally been seen as an essential development resource for the country:

However, in all honesty Russian, Chinese education can never compete with US, CA and European education level and quality and is generally reserved for students who cannot afford the high fees of the West. You cannot demand a Rolls Royce at the price of a Lada or Chery. Russian universities so far have had very few joint education programs or programs in foreign languages, or joint international research aimed at internationalizing the content of the curricula.

Russian universities today can be part of this internationalization of higher education. One issue is the language barrier, in particular for provincial universities. A network of academic and student exchanges can only work if our tutors, assistant professors, and professors are fluent in foreign languages and can freely give lectures, conduct seminars and are able to evaluate foreign students’ work or assist Russian students in absorbing foreign language materials.

The teaching language is an important factor in this internationalization. English-language programs are believed to be so popular among foreign students that such countries as Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Denmark and even France have started to offer programs in English.

In other words, teaching in a foreign language is no longer a luxury but a must if the universities are to remain competitive.

Russian universities, however, are not sufficiently integrated in the global publications system for international journals.

Russian Universities must become more actively involved in the internationalization of academic life, in part through better academic mobility; internships at foreign and international research centers; and the publication of academic and scientific achievements, including joint papers with foreign scholars and scientists in leading foreign journals. Additionally, long-term contracts with foreign professors, who are frequently published in foreign peer-reviewed journals, could help Russia become more internationalized.

Management accounting

Syllabus

Chapters 1  and  2   give particular emphasis to the role played by management accounting in the support of strategic  decision making. Chapter 3 adds the elements of uncertainty and capacity constraint.
Chapters 4 to 11 address various costing techniques, showing their underlying logic and demonstrating their most appropriate use. These techniques enable different analyses which are aimed at tracing
the consumption of resources back to units of products or services. The choice between them will be seen in light of the different aims that  the decision makers are hoping to achieve.
Chapter 12 explores the link between measurement and management, making the information created by activity -based costing (ABC) an essential tool for strategic management of an organisation. These decisions imply wider and longer commitments for a company,as explained in Chapter 13.
Chapters 14 to 19 close the loop opened at the beginning of the study guide with regards to the role of management accounting in strategic management.
Chapters 14 to 16 will demonstrate how the concepts  and techniques presented in the previous chapters can be used for advanced management practices,such as budgeting and controlling in a strategic context. Chapters 17 and 18 will explore how management accounting can enable performance evaluation aimed at supporting daily and strategic decision
making. Chapter 19 brings it all together by emphasising the use of comprehensive frameworks, such as the balanced scorecard,in strategic decision making.
The study guide closes with Chapter 20, where scenarios and questions are proposed to address all concepts in a systematic way.
