I am very glad that I could participate in International Week "Knowledge Economy: Challenges and Opportunities". I think that I received an invaluable experience of communication in English, in particular on topics related to business and management. All lectures prepared by the speakers were informative and very interesting. And I want to express great gratitude to the team of organizers, everything was done well, quickly and clearly!
It was an unforgettable week! Meeting with new interesting people, wonderful teachers, listen to which was extremely interesting. It was an opportunity to discover something new for myself. I was very glad that the lectures were conducted in English, therefore, this is an ideal chance for practice. Everything was organized at the highest level. Many thanks to the organizers for this opportunity! The international week for me is a time of pleasant memories.
Participation in the international week was something new for me. High organization, friendly team, foreign knowledge - all this inspires to self-development. I want to express my gratitude to K. Baimakova for the opportunity to participate in this wonderful international week.
I would have formulated the general impression of the international week the following way: I liked this event because of its multidimensionality. This International week for me personally became an incentive for a new stage in my professional life. First of all, I was pleased with the warm, democratic atmosphere, high level of organization and professionalism of the speakers, I would also like to note the intellectual pleasure that all participants of the international week have undoubtedly experienced !!!
International Week is an incredible event, which, of course, left an indelible impression of communication and attending lectures. For me personally this project has become an opportunity to practice my perception of various accents in the English language and exchange views on the policies of the participating countries, our history and culture. As far as I know, this week has become equally useful for students and professors from other countries. I would be glad to participate in such events even more often.

The International Week was organized at the proper level: starting from lectures and ending with the awarding of certificates. When I came to the first lecture, I did not expect that the week would pass so quickly and so interesting. I learned a lot of useful information for myself. I was very inspired by the lectures and whole event. I want to express my gratitude to the organizers and participants of the International Week for their work.

The SUAI first IW was a real opportunity for Université Le Havre Normandie (France) of discovering the excellence and the diversity of SUAI high level degree studies, the positive energy of its international young office staff, then the quality of its community of professors and students. The warm welcome from SUAI authorities, the mixing of students, professors and staff coming from Russia, India, Germany, Hungary, Netherland and France, gave this IW a very openness and colorfulness dimension. The IW was a living experience of this motto: “a stranger is a friend I haven’t met yet”. Now, SUAI 1st IW appears as the first very solid block upon whish bridges can be built. The excellence of the organization of this IW, the excellence of SUAI University, its willingness to promote international language courses it its formations pave the way to a future fruitful collaboration between Russia and France in the benefit of our students, our institutions, our countries, to secure a more sustainable, peaceful and wealthier future to everyone. I would like to express my warm thank for this incredible time. This has wholly changed my ignorant vision upon Russia and Russian people. I could felt your heart and seen your soul. The IW was an individual travel to a beautiful world, a beautiful city and its wonderful people.

This first international week was a very great experience. It was exciting to teach a big number of Russian students and a smaller number of other students from outside of Russia a little bit about power and democracy in organizations. It was also really nice to meet colleagues from all over the world and talk with them about life and work. And of course, it was great to be back in the most beautiful city of the world!
