Professor Ludo Pyis Visits the HSE Perm
From February 27 to March 6, Professor Ludo Pyis will deliver lectures at the HSE Perm. Professor Pyis is an instructor at Management Centre Europe in Brussels, Belgium. He has served as a visiting professor at universities in Belgium, Switzerland, Thailand, France, Bulgaria, Great Britain, and Turkey, and has worked for such companies as Hewlett Packard and General Motors. In 1992, he founded the management consulting group AREOPA, which focuses on improving business processes, calculating intellectual capital, and managing learning and knowledge.
Professor Pyis will read the course Intellectual Capital Accounting for the HSE Perm’s master’s programmes. The course’s objective is to familiarize students with the concept of intellectual capital, the models and methods for calculating it, and the way in which it is reflected in reporting. Eighteen master’s students of the Faculty of Economics will attend Professor Pyis’s lectures, which will be delivered in English.
The HSE Perm is also organizing lectures by Professor Pyis for top Sberbank managers and for a local club of CFOs.
Olesya Kondrakhina, ICEF Principles of Accounting lecturer, Assistant Lecturer for the Management Accounting programme at the University of London and three-time winner of the Best Teacher award at ICEF, spoke on how to keep a lecture hall full of students interested in accounting, the latest technical tools in her arsenal and a childhood dream.
The Higher School of Economics and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) have signed an agreement of mutual understanding. The agreement will allow in the future for some of the subjects taught at HSE to be recognised in ACCA’s accreditation process and opens up possibilities for students and graduates of financial programmes.
