The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 160 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

From Students to Managers: Myth, or a Pressing Need for Today’s Economy?
5 June 2021

Since 2017, hundreds of thousands of young people in Russia without any management experience have taken part in selection programmes to help them unlock their leadership potential. At the same time, the public and private sectors are continuing to evolve, and their requirements for candidates are changing accordingly — there is a desire to attract more dynamic and adaptable young people. However, lack of experience remains an issue, to say nothing of the economic consequences of the pandemic. Indeed, these are causing organizations to turn to experienced candidates capable of hitting the ground running. As a result, long-term considerations are being neglected, and youth unemployment is growing. Do selection programmes of the type alluded to above offer real value to the public and private sectors, or do they more resemble CSR or marketing ploys? What is the objective of initiatives of this kind? How can they be best employed, and how are they different to selection programmes for current managers? What skills do students lack in terms of beginning a managerial career, and what selection programmes employed by international companies for their management trainee programmes could be applied in Russia? And could international selection practices for fast-track leadership programmes be adopted in the country?
