St Petersburg is a large centre of international activity with countless conference events taking place year round. To meet the demand for professional event management, the School is about to launch a new Event Management training program, to produce trained professionals capable of organizing world-class conferences in accordance with international standards, and minimizing content-related and material risks in holding such large-scale events.

Creating such a training center is a logical step in the School’s development and an investment in its sustainability. Language mediation is a part of the much larger industry of event management.

The classes start in November. Alongside the training program, there is also be a broad program of internships in Russian governmental institutions and international organizations. The basic goal is to equip future professionals with the best available international standards and techniques of event management as practiced in major international settings and organizations.
