Value Differences

In the little more than twenty-five years since the fall of the Soviet Union, Moscow has not only "overcome" the backwardness of its Soviet past, it has transformed itself into a recognizably "Westernized," modernized, and upper-middle-class metropolis, the 11th-largest city in the world. What might you see and experience as a foreigner hoping to do business (and perhaps some sightseeing) in Russia's capital? 



  • Casual attire is the minimum dress requirement for attendance at this event. View a description of this attire.
  • 10 PDP points earned for successful completion.
  • 50 minutes is the expected time commitment for successful completion.
  • Value Differences competency addressed in this professional development experience.
  • The TCoB Study Abroad Department is the organizer for this event. This organizer is working with the PDP office to have PDP points awarded for students who successfully participate in their event; therefore, procedures for event registration, check-in, timeline for processing PDP points and other event details may be different from typical in-person PDP sessions. Please refer to information in the body of this calendar event and/or emails from the event organizer for possible further information and/or instructions. Important note: while some details may vary, there will be no change from the PDP Programming Syllabus regarding (1) the students’ responsibility to take appropriate steps to have their presence documented in order for attendance to officially be recorded (2) specifics for the minimum attire requirement, and (3) students will have 5 business days after the event date to dispute points awarded/not awarded.

This session takes students beyond the foundational knowledge gained in the BA course series (BA 1500, BA 2500, BA 3500) and helps students prepare for BA 4500 internship course opportunities and the professional world beyond.
