Corteva Agriscience and MGIMO entered into a cooperation agreement On June 27, 2019, Corteva Agriscience and the Moscow State Institute of International Relations signed a cooperation agreement as part of the Master's program in World Agricultural Markets.
The agreement includes the joint organization of lecture courses, the involvement of representatives of Corteva Agriscience and company partners to conduct classes, master classes and other events for students and students of MGIMO, as well as the implementation of joint projects. The parties also intend to cooperate in the field of scientific research.
“Cooperation with business is an important area of the University. It is especially pleasant to welcome, among MGIMO's partners, the large international agricultural company Corteva Agriscience, which we recently opened. I am sure that the agreement will be useful for the company, the University, our partners in the implementation of the World Agrarian Markets program and students, ”said Anatoly Torkunov, MGIMO Rector.
“We are proud of our cooperation with MGIMO and hope that it will become long-term and fruitful.
