About the course
There is the St Nikolas chapel in the center of Novosibirsk City. City legend says that the chapel is a symbol of the geographical center of Russia. The truth or not – maybe it was true for the former Russian empire? – but, indeed, Novosibirsk is somewhere in the center of the largest country in the world. A country that possesses great natural wealth.
A country where many things were invented to beх perfected somewhere else. Controversial and mysterious, passionate and severe, diverse and united. Isn't it easier to comprehend the immensity staying in the center of it? Business starts from understanding the partner, which has different facets, both explicit and implicit, but it is never too easy in Russia.
