  • Moscow State University of Economics, Statistics and Informatics (MESI) started implementing information and communication technologies (ICTs) both in the academic and administrative processes more than fifteen years ago. MESI founded in 1932, nowadays is one of the leading innovative institutions of higher education in Russia with rich experience and strong tradition of staff training for the economy of Russia and foreign countries . Fields of expertise: Institute of Computer Technologies Institute of Economics and Finance Institute of Management Institute of Law and Humanities Institute of Master Programs
  • A twentieth century person, suffering from a constant lack of time, was given an opportunity to reduce space to a considerable degree. Long distance was always an obstacle for people to achieve their goals. Within several minutes the underground can move us from one side of a town to another; the travelling time of high speed trains between different cities has been reduced several times over; and it takes us only a few hours to get from one continent to another on a jet airliner. The Internet penetrates deeply into everyday life due to the availability of broadband networks and mobile devices. Everybody knows that the Internet is a global computer network, which embraces hundred of millions of users all over the world and helps us to communicate with each other.
  • Living in a digital world Blurring of boundaries between people, companies, countries Mobility of knowledge The development of additional features
  • The new generation is significantly different from the previous one, and especially as far as the business qualities are concerned. They don’t want to learn information consistently by reading books and course books. They’d rather participate in an experimental study. They create their own interactive and collaborative learning regardless of whether we acknowledge it and take it into consideration or not. All of them have new approaches to their work: they are aimed at competition, they are excellent team players and they are not afraid to take risks. They need other skills and they get them differently. 25 % of students use the Internet to find information for their work or study, 17% gain new knowledge and 14 % share information on work or study.
  • For the vast majority of teens, social and other digital communications media are a daily part of life. One in four teens is a “heavy” social media user, meaning they use at least two different types of social media each and every day.
  • Social networks are becoming a widespread tool for an up-to-date educational process. They allow the arranging of an educational process in a student’s familiar environment, help to overcome territorial and organizational obstacles, provide for open discussions and information exchange and develop the concept “learning as a lifestyle”.
  • Что нужно чтобы студент был удовлетворен качеством занятий? Студент сейчас: Отлично владеет базовыми ИТ компетенциями; Способен сам находить требующуюся ему информацию; Не видит необходимости в записи лекционного материала; Нуждается в «путеводителе» по миру знаний Что нужно для студента? В прошлом: Создать учебный материал; Провести очные занятия Сейчас: Создавать новые знания; Направлять студента на изучение необходимых знаний; Обучать его с использованием уже привычных ему ИТ-технологи
  • Social networks allow using the applications, implementing social projects and shaping communities. The world of communication now includes a vast array of media: audio, video, rich media presentations, interactiveWeb sites, DVDs, simulations, and virtual meeting environments. Today’s teachers use different types of media to reach and retain their students.
  • Nowadays, a modern university management model is management of the global networked organization based on information and communication technologies. The system of information and communication provision allows implementing the principle of “Everything is in the net” (management, faculty, students and content). A joint portal university system provides tools on the one hand for administration for the creation, updating and using of the content within the academic process; and on the other hand, for the arrangement of a management system of the distributed university.
  • Digital technology - a platform of effective functioning and development of the modern university.
  • Today 97 % of the staff, administrative and managerial staff, faculty and branch students have accounts in information networks of MESI: Outlook mailboxes, access to SharePoint of MESI, Skype, ICQ.
  • Contemporary, a modern university management model is management of the global networked organization based on information and communication technologies. The system of information and communication provision allows implementing the principle of “Everything in the net” (management, faculty, students and content). A joint portal university system provides tools, on the one hand, for administration of the creation, updating and use of the content within the academic process, and on the other hand, for the arrangement of a management system of the distributed university. Information technologies provide effective human resource management: the organization of e-learning, electronic document management, processing of electronic reporting, interviewing personnel, etc. In parallel, the gender gaps go on the back burner while the women master advanced techniques and management tools not worse than men. Running management processes at a distance allows you to adjust the schedule for job, family and leisure.
  • Modern society, rapidly changing technologies, new needs of students are challenging the entire system of education. The Internet gives students access to communications, expanded resources, and gives ability to use sound, graphic, video and text. Open information environment allows placing online courses and tutorials, holding live broadcasts and video recordings of lectures and presentations, and organizing teacher and student communication including people from different countries.
  • Today its unified e-learning environment allows rendering educational services to students of all levels and forms (both on-campus and off-campus) and 24x7x365 support. Information System for Administration comprises electronic document management systems, students’ records, the results of their individual learning activities for the current, interim and final assessment. MESI actively develops the academic knowledge management system, which suggests the formation of the university’s integrated knowledge environment by means of generating the scientific and research studies, conducting the scientific and methodology work, choosing the best practices for implementation of the above, as well as opening educational internal and Internet-based resources. The modern university management system has to be aimed at the ongoing external changes, meet all the information society requirements and use the scientific attitude towards the management process, thus becoming an effective instrument to increase the level of the education services offered and its competitiveness. The perfection of the management process must be oriented to the higher educational standards and current demands of modern society.
