Let me introduce myself. My name is … . I’m a second-year student of Economics Faculty of Biysk Technological Institute of the Altai Technical University. Our institute provides a high quality education in a wide range of academic majors to thousands of students throughout our region. The Institute attracts students and staff of the highest caliber. BTI offers a wide variety of programs ranging from introductory studies to full degree programs. The majors cover such areas as Computing and Information Systems, Electronics, Chemical and Machine-building Engineering, Accounting, Management, etc. Within each major there are dozens of different courses.
In 2001 a new speciality, Trade Management, was established at the Chemical Engineering Faculty. Lack of qualified personnel in commerce and other economical fields caused the necessity of establishing such a new speciality.
A commercial specialist is not just a seller but an independent employee in Marketing Sales, Financial and Planning departments at any enterprise or company.
It is a highly qualified manager that can be a head of any small business or a president of a large company. The graduates of the speciality can be engaged in trade companies, Customs and Foreign Economic Departments of any production corporation.
The students of this speciality are trained in more than 10 chairs of the Institute. So they are able to get all-round professional and theoretical knowledge. They are taught various general subjects such as History, Mathematics, Computer Science, Philosophy, Psychology, Foreign Languages, Physical Education, etc. The special subjects are Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Management, Accounting, Marketing, Money and Banking, Economic Theory, Statistics, etc. Apart from the subjects they are taught Trade Law, Customs Management, Legal Regulation of the Foreign Economic Relations, etc.
The curriculum provides some elective courses of Oriental languages such as Chinese, Japanese, Turkish and Mongolian. Nowadays the professional and language practice in Japan and China are also being provided.
So the education of such a specialist is quite diversified. The graduates will be able to work at any production company, banks, businesses or educational institutions. You may also continue studying at the post-graduate studies if you have desire and abilities to become a scientist in the field of commercial business, create new theories and models, test hypotheses and carry out marketing researches.
Knowing the society’s development a qualified trade management specialist can solve many problems our country faces and I hope I’ll make my contribution to this process.
