The United Dissertation Research Council has started its work on the implementation of NUST MISIS’s rights to award degrees independently. The previous Dissertation Research Council on the Higher Attestation Commission will continue its work until August 31st, 2018, and afterward will cease operations.
On May 17th, 2018, NUST MISIS hosted African Student Union Day. Traditionally, the program consisted of artifact viewing, a concert, and a display of national cuisines. This year’s ceremony was the first with Daniel Bonner Mbil as the Chairman of the Union, and that played an important role during the proceedings.
For the first time, NUST MISIS has been included in the Times Higher Education (THE) — International Student Table 2018: top 200 universities. It was ranked 162nd. With this ranking, NUST MISIS has become one of just 5 Russian universities included in the ranking.
