"Since I received the NES diploma – and it was only two years after its foundation – I was a beholder of how the School grew and developed, how it became a leader in the field of economic and financial education, as more and more NES alumni achieved success and recognition. Today, when NES marks a quarter of a century, the School can boast of a number of outstanding achievements, but at the same time it is even more enthusiastic, more energetic and focused on the upcoming victories", said Arkady Dvorkovich, Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation, Chairman of the Board of Directors of NES, NES alumnus.
