While managing educational projects for The Russian Communications Consultancies Association (АКОS), Elena Fadeeva continues to develop educational initiatives aimed at maintaining the PR discipline in the Russian universities. She has headed up the “Strategic consulting in the field of public relations” special course two years running for senior students of the “Public Relations” department at the Philosophy Faculty of Moscow State University. According to tradition, there is a contest each year to achieve the best diploma on the course and the winners greatly enhance their career prospects.

Elena Fadeeva, General Director of Fleishman-Hillard Vanguard, commented:  “I was impressed with the standard of training shown by graduates of the Philosophy Faculty of Moscow State University. Their work displays a high level of thought, showing a deep scientific approach and at the same time, a sincere interest in the subject. The students thoroughly study the modern problems that exist in the PR market, analyze various aspects of PR activity and pay attention to new trends. I think the industry will soon receive some very well prepared staff, and I would like to thank the heads of the public relations department for training these young professionals to such a high level.”

Anna Kostikova, scientific director of the “Public Relations” educational program at the Philosophy Faculty of Moscow State University, Ph.D., and associate professor, said: “It is essential for us to secure the participation of experts and potential employers in the final assessment of the knowledge and skills of our graduates.
