Master’s degree is the second part of two-stages higher education system. It graduates professionals with more in-depth specialization, who are able to solve complicated problems. They are involved in scientific and research activities as well as in individual analytical work. Duration of training at this stage is 2 years.

The main task of master’s degree is to prepare professionals for successful careers in international and Russian companies, as well as for analytical, consulting and research activities. Master's degree is closer to a level of PhD thesis, thus higher requirements are submitted to it.

A master's degree is given by the results of defending his master's thesis at the meeting of the National Certification Commission. According to amendments to the Federal Law "On Higher and Postgraduate Professional Education" (Chapter II, Art. 11), 2011 "obtaining higher education in the abbreviated specialist training programs and master's degree programs is not permitted."

Graduates masters will be able to implement themselves in science, to hold the positions requiring analytical and project skills and abilities, to carry independent production or social and economic activity.

Those who already have a bachelor's or graduate, can not be trained to master on a budgetary basis, as it would amount to a second higher education.

The level of the master grants the right to further training in postgraduate study. Arrived in magistracy the two-year draft deferment is provided.
