“Increasing the attractiveness of the university in the international space is a recognition of the quality of our educational programs and scientific research, speaks of close ties with partner employers, reflects the effective work of the entire faculty and administration of the university, aimed at increasing its competitiveness.
Our success became possible, among other things, due to the serious interest and great support of the leadership of the republic, the unification of the universities of Bashkortostan within the framework of the world-class Eurasian REC.
The international evaluation of our activities shows in which areas we have achieved good results, and where we still need to work hard. This also determines the tasks that the university faces. We will only move forward!
