Kuznetsov, E.V. (Chief Engineer of the “Norilskgazprom”)
I really appreciated the organization and the actual program of the internship. The visits I have found the most beneficial were to the Škoda and Alfmeier enterprise. In addition, meeting the lean manager of Alfmeier was quite interesting too. I also believe that Methods 5s and Lean will be particularly useful for me in the future.
Chernyi, A. V (Deputy Chief Engineer of the mine)
During my internship, I have gained valuable and applicable experience in management and learned about modern technologies. To me, the most interesting events were the visits to Škoda, Alfmeier, Vitkovice and T-Machinery. I was particularly impressed with the methods of 5s, Kaizen and Six Sigma. I really appreciated the unique opportunity to meet and have a conversation with the lean manager of Alfmeier, Otoy Koucolik. I truly believe that internships like this should be continued in the future.

It is evident that the organizers of the internship have put a lot of work and effort into organizing the program. The material covered is very well structured and covers all the aspects thoroughly. The willingness of the organizers to share professional and personal experiences allowed us to gain additional knowledge, extending beyond the given program’s content. I really enjoyed the extensive excursion program included in the internship. As a suggestion for the future, I would like to have had the chance for optional visits, according to one’s interest, for example - a visit to Volkswagen glass factory in Dresden.

Internship in Germany “Modern Management. European experience "
Alexey Rostislavovich Svirsky
IT Director of GK Video International.
Many thanks to the internship organizers! All the events of the program were very interesting and practical. I especially liked the excursion to the Liebherr plant and the story about the dynamics of the growing company's management system, as well as the practice of personal responsibility of employees regarding the quality of work. The most interesting seminar for me was the “Neuromarketing and Profiles of the Future Society's Desires” by Dr. Doderer - a unique fusion of business, psychophysiology and the lecturer's charisma! The cultural program was very informative and diverse. Finally, a collaborative manufacturing of paper in the museum of the same name symbolized our hard work during the week into a real object! I will definitely recommend the internship to my friends and colleagues!
Deputy General Director of “Volzhskaya TGK”
I really liked visiting the Mercedes plant and other companies. It was interesting to see the organization of business processes from the inside perspective, in a very clear and accessible form. The work on the group project facilitated a consolidation of the knowledge gained, and gave us a chance to discuss and apply the gained experiences in relation to our own companies.
