The Moscow Institute of Commerce was founded in 1907 on private donations of merchants, bankers and manufacturers, gathered by initiative of the Moscow merchant A.S. Vishnyakov. It was essentially the first institute in Russia which prepared qualified businessmen for rapidly developing branches of industry. Prior to the revolution of 1917 about 2000 specialists were graduated from the institute. In 1924 it was appointed the name of Marxist thinker Georgi Plekhanov.Need to mention it was the only Russian University that time (1907) where women were allowed to study. Since 1960s the Institute was merged with Moscow Governmental Economic Institute and became one of the major centers of scientific education in the country. After 1991 the institute obtained its current name. Recent years were marked with rising international cooperation, such as the foundation of Africa Business House. Now the Academy deals with more than 80 partners in 52 countries. Among its graduates, there are many prominent politicians and businessmen, such as soviet statesman Mikhail Suslov, a liberal democrat Grigory Yavlinsky and faculty member Ruslan Khasbulatov, Former Chairman of the Supreme Soviet of the Russian SFSR and later Chairman of the Supreme Soviet of the Russian Federation (1991-1993).
Founded in 1907 the Plekhanov Russian Academy of Economics has always striven to offer students a variety of "field oriented" study programs and opportunities to master skills they can apply in their professional work. The Plekhanov graduates enjoy top jobs in all branches of the Russian national economy and abroad proving convincingly that the Academy’s approach has both academic validity and practical application in its own right.
The Academy offers a multi-facet two-level system of economic and business education.
The first level - a four-year full-time Bachelor Degree Programme at the General Economics Department primarily aims at conveying a broad knowledge of fundamentals of economics and business studies. Graduates are awarded a Bachelor Degree with qualification of "Economist".

The international dimension of the Academy is presented by the International Education Centre (IEC) and offers foreign students a variety of undergraduate and graduate degree programmes in English as the language of instruction. IEC students can major in finance & credit, marketing, hotel and restaurant management, and business administration. The IEC has set up partnerships with 7 European universities, where on the basis of adjusting and matching syllabi and curricula, students’ grades and degrees are transferable and prove valid both for Russian and European academic standards. There are students exchange programs with over 35 universities in more than a dozen countries across the world.
Plekhanov Russian Academy of Economics started international student exchange programmes in the mid-eighties, and thus became the first institution of higher education in Moscow to offer a programme with instruction in English, in 1992, as part of IBS-Plekhanov project.
The project resulted from the cooperation with several Dutch universities (Hanzehogeschool van Groningen, Arnhem Business school, Haagsehogeschool), which started with the exchange of students and developing the Double Degree Programme with focus on International Marketing, Management and Finance. The first 20 students were enrolled in 1993, and in 1997, the Double Degree (Russian and Dutch) was conferred to 19 students, who successfully completed the course of study.
At present about 350 Russian and international students study at IBS. Every year more than 100 students go abroad to continue their education with one of the foreign partners of REA.
The 4-year programme of higher professional education leading up to the degree of Bachelor of Economics started in 2001.
