Rector of IGUMO on education, scholarships, and state accreditation 

People always want to ask the head of the higher education institution a number of questions. In this interview, Marina Volynkina, Rector of the Institute for the Humanities and Information Technologies (IGUMO), answered the most topical of them. She told about why the presence of state accreditation was no longer relevant, how Responsible Education became the trademark of IGUMO, and what five positions identified the Institutes environment. 

System of Values and Institutes Environment

Over the 28 years of its operation, the Institute for the Humanities and Information Technologies has elaborated a sustainable system of values including five key aspects: mutual respect, creative approach, opportunity to develop, cooperation, and mentorship. They determine not only corporate culture of IGUMO but also its unique atmosphere.

Modern education system shifts toward material values as priority ones but the task of IGUMO is to teach its students to not only perform their work professionally but also to be happy people. 

Studies and practice contribute to the students professional fulfilment and participation in social projects of the Institute helps them learn to be happy.

Rectors Scholarships

Formation of spiritual competencies is none the less important than professional development. That is why scholarships at IGUMO are awarded not only for success in studies. Rectors scholarships are given to students taking part in the Institutes social projects. The monetary remuneration serves not only as compensation for labour but also serious motivation to social activity.

Unique Projects

The ability to create and work in team is the distinctive feature of IGUMO students. To contribute to their professional and creative fulfilment, the Institutes administration involves students in project activities. The Institute carries out three large-scale projects: Global Talents all-Russian web-portal, Days of Contemporary Art (DOCA) international festival, and the Eurasian Womens Community independent news agency. 

All projects of IGUMO are listed on a separate page of our website.

Communication with Professionals

Training of professionals must be carried out jointly with industry leaders. That is why IGUMO hosts workshops of Russian and international specialists weekly. The experts tell the students about modern trends in professional area and challenges in the market. 

Lectures are not the only way of communication with representatives of professions. It continues during students practical training and implementation of projects.

International Collaboration

The ability to establish effective international dialogue is demanded in all professions. Development of horizontal communication with representatives of different countries is carried out within internships to European partner universities, at international conferences, and by means of such projects as DOCA international festival, the Festival of Irish Culture, Open Studios Bauhaus Dessau, and Summer Peace Summit. 

Students acquire the opportunity to borrow international experience in addressing professional and creative tasks and establish partner contacts with representatives of different culture.

Responsible Education Trademark

In 2009, IGUMO scholars jointly with Step by Step company conducted a research on identifying the quality of education at our Institute. Responsible Education appeared as the phrase reflecting the fundamental principles of educational process at IGUMO in the most exact way. 

Thus, Responsible Education became a defining phrase. Already the first year of studies at our Institute forms every students trajectory of professional and creative development. For IGUMO administration, it is crucially important what their graduates will be like. They are concerned whether students will like their profession, be happy in life, and have self-fulfilment and creative thinking as guidelines in their professional and personal development. IGUMO lecturers transmit all the necessary knowledge for successful fulfilment in profession and life and become the students mentors. 

That is why Responsible Education has become the trademark of IGUMO since 2009.

License and Accreditation

The Institute has perpetual state license allowing it to carry out educational activities. 

What concerns state accreditation, the accreditation expertise is focused on the correspondence of the content and quality of training to state standards. At the same time, in the context of market-driven economy, the employment of students serves the main indicator of the content and quality of educational programmes.

The fact that IGUMO students are offered jobs even before their graduation is a reliable evidence of the quality of education that it gives. 

Statistically, 70-85% of IGUMO graduates have been employed since 2015. Our graduates include heads of major companies, art directors, interpreters, famous musicians, bloggers with a multi-million audience, and lecturers of international universities.

A state-recognised diploma is a document that enrollees traditionally want to have when choosing Russian universities to enter. As the experience has shown, designers, photographers, advertisers, and interpreters need competencies and professional background. Their employability depends not only on the document they have but also on their knowledge and skills. Private education institutions have been considered the leaders among European universities for a long time. Companies hiring their graduates appreciate the quality of their training. 

If you want to become a professional loving your job and finding delight in professional activity, welcome to IGUMO!
