"If the quality of education in our city was estimated as a result of the employment of university graduates, it is difficult not to agree with the experts opinion. - Says Irina Prosvirina, Doctor of Economics, professor, head of accounting, analysis and audit. - Most graduates of our faculty find jobs in their field, refuting "myth" that the economists and accountants are not in demand today. On the contrary, we can not satisfy all requests of employers for graduates of our faculty. Economic potential of the city was not taken into account in this rating. Prospects for the country's economy are closely associated with defense projects now. Economic potential of Chelyabinsk will only increase because of development of defense industry. I think that if this figure was taken into account in the rating - we would take an even more prominent position. "
