University

American University in Moscow (AUM) was founded in 1990 with the endorsement of Presidents Mikhail Gorbachev and George H. Bush, Gorbachev’s science advisor academician Yuri Ossipyan, and Mayor of Moscow Gavriil Popov. Financial support for the university came from several American companies and private individuals, most generously from Russia House and the late Robert Krieble. At that time it was the first private business school in the USSR. Many Russian students who graduated from the university with the equivalent of MBA degree became successful businessmen and entrepreneurs and have made their contribution to Russia ’s transition to a free market economy. The program grew too fast and a few years later it was transferred to the International University in Moscow.

Presently AUM is concentrating on conference, research, and publishing activities to promote U.S.-Russia educational, cultural, and business cooperation. We also offer an online course on U.S.-Russia relations in cooperation with the Department of World Politics at Moscow State University. This course covers the most important issues facing the two countries. Please follow posted by-weekly assignments and those who register and send regular well written essays (around 600 words) will receive a university certificate.
