- Will the number of students of the Russian Railways Corporate University programmes increase, taking into account online training?
- Today, the world is based on the general availability of knowledge and openness is the principle of the Corporate Culture of Russian Railways. Moreover, the training does not end after leaving the classroom. "Life-Long Learning" is not a fashionable term, but a real concept of knowledge in the modern society, which means that we must give knowledge not only to Russian Railways employees, but also broadcast it to the outside world.
By the way, this is what our social media strategy is aimed at. Great interest was aroused by the project "Knowledge.Live" – authors' mini-courses of University faculty on the acute topics: Financial Literacy, Stress Management, Emotional Intelligence, Thinking Traps. In short, welcome to the University's classrooms, including virtual ones. We are waiting for everyone!
- On the anniversary, it is a common practice to talk not only about what has already been done, but also to share plans for the future…
- We have large-scale development plans. It is impossible to list everything in the interview. Of course, this is the new infrastructure that meets innovative trends. Moreover, JSC "Russian Railways" actively supports us in this.
It is difficult to predict the subject of training at the turn of 3-5 years, but we are confident that, taking into account the speed of changes, the programmes will be radically updated.
The University will expand approaches to the talent pool development. Functional programmes will appear and the Company verticals will be able to form their own pool of high-potential managers, for example, in the field of Economics, Traffic Management, Infrastructure, Traction, IT and International Projects.
Certainly, we will expand the range of programmes to support digital transformation.
The educational project with the departure of leading Russian speakers to the Regional Railways will soon start. where master classes on key trends in Macro Environment, Innovative Solutions, Business Transformation Strategies and Digitalization Technologies will be held.
In 2020, the Corporate University of Russian Railways joined the TrainRail (International Rail Training and Education Board) under the auspices of the International Union of Railways (UIC). And our plans are to translate the programmes into English and make them more accessible in the professional environment.
Our main goal is to become the best Corporate University in the world! We have consciously set this ambitious goal for ourselves and have all the opportunities to achieve it. Our creative and friendly team is determined to win.
