This is the research element of ICEF Academia, which runs programmes for the most high-achieving and motivated ICEF students. The programmes are overseen by internationally qualified teachers, and focus on preparing participants for research activities and an academic career, including embarking on a PhD. ICEF faculty members with doctorates guide the students; they include Udara Peiris, Dmitry Makarov, Emiliano Catonini, and Alexis V. Belianin.

Over half of the graduates of ICEF’s Bachelor’s Programme continue their studies by enrolling in an MSc at leading Russian and international universities. This year, our future graduates have already secured MSc places at: LSE, LBS, HEC Paris, University of Warwick, UCL, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, EDHEC Business School and Cass Business School.
