Our challenge

To work with Russian Railways and their UK agent Knowledge Associates Cambridge to develop an international management learning programme to enable the expansion and development of the Russian Railways brand.

Our solution

Degrees at Work and Knowledge Associates Cambridge worked with Russian Railways to provide a training programme for their management team. This programme is delivered to Russian Railways’ senior executives in English by Anglia Ruskin academics, with simultaneous interpretation through headphones. The next level of management is then taught in Russian by their own training team at their Corporate University in Shcherbinka, near Moscow.
