BSU students of “World Economy” (МЭК), “Economic Security” and “Customs” also presented the results of their researches at a high theoretical and practical level.
Professor Irina Tsvigun said: “Each report was unique and original. Some students drew conclusions on the basis of conducted sociological surveys, some of them analyzed statistics, others studied the work of scientists and made an attempt to define their own scientific categories. All students made an attempt to have their say in science.”
