Head of the department
The Joint Department with PwC was established in May 2011 under the direction of HSE’s Faculty of Economic Sciences and PwC. World-class practitioners are invited to teach students, allowing the Department to accumulate best practices in audit, tax and business consulting. Department staff members provide additional practical knowledge, which has a significant influence on students’ professional future and employability after graduation.
The Department provides everything required for professional research and development, including topics, academic advising, and access to new equipment. Apart from academic studies students also pursue practical projects that simulate the operating process of a real company to the greatest extent possible.
The Department is actively involved in vocational guidance and works to assist students in defining their career ambitions and improving their employability. Representatives of various business lines at PwC lecture on the specific features of their focus areas. Experienced recruiters meet with students on a regular basis, advising them on CV preparation and the interview process, which also includes an opportunity to participate in a trial interview with feedback. The company’s professional business coaches teach business skills in their training sessions.
