History of the University
The history of the Plekhanov University is the history of the 20th century Russia itself, with all its difficulties and different stages. Founded in 1907, the Plekhanov Russian University of Economics became the first and only university in Russia whose main subjects of study were economics, trade and commerce. At that time, the academy was called Moscow Commercial Institute. The academy was founded by Russian merchants, who seen that quick economic growth of country is impossible without skilled managers and economists. The merchants established Moscow Commercial Education Spreading Society, whose mission is quite understandable by its name. The president of the Society was Alexey Vichniakov, merchant of the first guild. Many of Russian distinguished dynasties such as the Abrikosovs or the Smirnovs was the members of the Society and donated money to the new university.
In its first academic year (1907/1908) the institute had 50 students only. But in ten years time their number increased up to 6647. The best students could apply for scholarships and the most successful ones could take part in international programs and go on to study abroad, mainly in Europe.
After the October Revolution of 1917, the Institute took different names. Firstly it became known as Marks Moscow Institute of National Economy, than - Plekhanov Moscow Institute of National Economy . But the idea of training highly qualified students for the Russian economy remained the same. The Plekhanov Academy got its present name in 1991 when it became the Plekhanov Russian Academy of Economics. Today the University is one of the largest and most prestigious Russian universities with an extensive network of international partnership. Our graduates work for multinational and Russian companies in and outside Russia. Currently, there are around 12,000 full time, part time and distance learning students at the University.
