It's not a secret for anyone that student years are not only lectures, seminars, conferences, it is also a rich extracurricular life, a life full of communication, emotions and unforgettable impressions. The Student Council of the Institute of Economics and Business is the main organizer of the Institute.
The heart of any university is the Student Council. He is the liaison between students and the university leadership.

The Student Council of Economics and Business is a big friendly family, where everyone has their share of participation. Participation in the life of the Student Council is a profitable investment in yourself. This is an experience that allows you to develop the skills needed in the future: communication skills, diplomacy, the ability to negotiate and defend your own position. Here everyone finds his calling and it is thanks to the work of the Student Council that he reveals his talents.

People often ask: "Why go to the Student Council?" This question can be answered in different ways. But the main advantage is that you better understand people, their motives, actions, positions. This is your chance to find yourself, implement the most incredible ideas, implement the most daring projects, lead people and become a team.

The main task of the IE&B Student Council is to unite students, contribute to the development and prosperity of the educational process both in our institute and in the RAU as a whole, to contribute to strengthening the close relationship between the administration of the institute, teachers and students.
The Student Council does everything to make the student's life rich not only in academic terms, but also culturally. After all, the ability to rest properly is our slogan!
