Many Universities that have received a license for training of economists based have almost no economic school: neither his teaching methods, no proper staff. As a result, the graduate receives a "crust" and a very vague idea about the profession. It is therefore particularly valued by graduates from leading Universities: Financial University under the government of the Russian Federation, Higher School of Economics, Moscow state University, Russian Economic University n. a. Plekhanov, the state University, MGIMO and others.

Therefore, students-economists it makes sense to think about finding jobs on 3-4 course. This will allow you to gain invaluable experience and after graduation to become a specialist in demand.
Training and self-education. Various trainings, seminars, books and courses that can help in the work of the economist, these days countless. To pursue your education can and should regularly.
