Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation

Glorious history of the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation – one of the leading educational institutions of present-day Russia – started exactly one hundred years ago, in the first month of spring of 1919, from a small and narrowly specialized institute located in Moscow at 12, Tversky Boulevard.


An anniversary, especially such a significant one, is a good occasion to draw intermediate conclusions and set new goals and objectives for the future to carry on with efficient work and sustainable development.  Beyond any doubt, the values that we hold in our hearts constitute a solid basis for gradual progress.  These values are the love to our Motherland, deep sense of duty, honesty, striving for new knowledge, and mutual respect.


The history of our Country, development of its economy, growth of its credit and financial system have defined the Path of the Financial University.  However, the history of the Financial University is not just a chronology of government decrees, reforms carried out, and agreements signed.  Most importantly, it is the history of people who had excelled in work and studies, who have built brilliant careers and made significant contributions to the development of our State, thanks to the great education provided by the Financial University.  Talented, creative, and, in many ways, extraordinary – so were at all times and so remain the professors and students of the Financial University.  The best of the best! Each and every one of them fulfills his or her own destiny but the University has become a key turning point for all of them – it has set their directions in life, made it possible to find lifelong friends, and, for some people, created an opportunity to meet their Love and build families.


On the days of celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Financial University, as the most sincere feeling of gratitude to the Alma Mater fills the hearts of graduates of all generations, we, of course, remember the names of those who stood at the very origins of the University, those who through hard work have created a firm basis for the transformation of a small institution with exclusive specialization into a giant educational and research complex, widely known and recognized in Russia and far beyond.  Today we are rightfully proud of our vast history of success and accomplishment, we honor our traditions, and confidently look into the future.

Moscow City

Moscow is the capital of Russia, the largest city in the country and Europe, and one of the largest cities in the world. Moscow refers to global cities having a great influence on the world because of its high economic level and population. It is the main transport hub of Russia, its political, economic, cultural, and scientific center.


Moscow features

Moscow is located in the center of the European part of Russia, between the rivers Oka and Volga. The climate is moderate continental: heavy frosts and extreme heat are rare. The average temperature in January – minus 7.2 degrees Celsius, in July – plus 20.4 degrees Celsius.

The city has the status of a separate federal subject of the Russian Federation. It is the smallest federal subject by land area.

The name of the city as well as the names of many other cities around the world, is bound with the name of the river it is standing on (the Moskva River). The river was called this way long before the settlement appeared. It is unknown who named it and what this name means. There are two main versions: Finnio-Ugric and Slavic.

According to the first one, the word “Moskva” is derived from the Finno-Ugric language group which means “river-bear”. The Slavic theory points to the stem “mosk” denoting “marshy” or “moisture, liquid, marshland, dampness”.

The city is surrounded by 6 airports, 9 railway stations, and 3 river ports. Moscow has developed a fabulous metro (subway) system. The first stations were built in 1935.

Moscow is the largest Russian financial center. About half of Russian banks are located in Moscow. Most of the largest companies are registered and have head offices in Moscow, although their manufactures might be located thousands of km from the city.

The city is the most important center of retail sales in Russia. Moscow represents about 30% of all commodities sold in Russia.

Moscow is also a large scientific center. There are a lot of scientific research institutes carrying out research in many branches, such as nuclear power, microelectronics, space exploration and other promising directions.
