FEFU Chinese postgraduate student won All-Russian Olympiad in Russian language

Li Jun (PRC), a postgraduate student, School of Economics and Management, Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU SEM), became the winner of the All-Russian Olympiad in the Russian language among international students. The competition was held on the margins of the forum at RUDN University (Peoples' Friendship University of Russia, Moscow), which gathered more than 300 representatives from 46 countries.

The participants of the Olympiad were offered to write an essay on the topic 'About Russia with Love', to pass an interview, and to perform test tasks. It is interesting that Li Jun study Economics at FEFU and he performed the tasks on a par with students of linguistic programs, but this did not stop him from showing excellent knowledge and to win the first place.

Li Jun received a Bachelor's degree in Economics from Qingdao University, then he further studied Master's degree at the Vladivostok State University of Economics and Service, and in 2014 he entered the FEFU postgraduate school. He has already passed the final exams and is preparing to defend his PhD thesis on 'Tools and methods for managing the technological development of metallurgical production.'

“I propose in my work how the model of economic management of metallurgical production in China can be introduced at Russian industry enterprises. A mathematical approach was first used in studying these processes,” Li Jun explained. “I was offered to enter RUDN University at the forum, but I refused, since FEFU has already become my alma mater. Starting from September I will be a faculty member at the School of Economics and Management, I will work with international students.”

It was Kung Ming (PRC), a 2017 graduate with Bachelor's degree in Management, who also took part with Li Jun in the forum. He received an honors degree and is among the best graduates of #TOP100FEFU.
