NES Commencement 2017 Took Place at the Moscow International Performing Arts Center

102 NES graduates received diplomas!

On July 7, New Economic School held its 24th Commencement Ceremony in the Chamber Hall of the Moscow International Performing Arts Center.

By tradition, the event was led by Zarema Kasabieva, NES Vice-Rector for Educational and Students Affairs. Professor Shlomo Weber, NES Rector, greeted the School graduates and guests of the event.

The eighth lecture held this year, on “How Economic Science Helps Central Banks Make Decisions,” was delivered by Elvira Nabiullina, the Governor of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.

Ms. Nabiullina also delivered a warm congratulatory message to the graduates of 2017.
