Paris Dauphine University was founded in 1968 when the University of Paris was divided into 13 independent institutions. It is an economist-training institution. It is located in the former NATO headquarters in western Paris. Its name comes from Porte Dauphine where the main campus building is located. The University specialisms are programs in economics, management, and decision-making techniques; this is why the fabric of the Financial University and Paris Dauphine University is quite similar. According to Christophe Elie-Dit-Cosaque, Vice-President of Paris-Dauphine University, they have a number of programs that are open to international students, they are the programs taught in English and French or entirely in French. They are an indicator of the Paris-Dauphine University internationalization process. The cooperation areas where they could jointly work are joint educational program development, and arrangement of meetings of the two Universities' teaching staff with a view of cooperation in the field of research. Joint teaching activities will help both parties learn more about each other, identify areas of common interest and future joint research projects. Paris Dauphine University intends to launch diverse academic mobility programs that could help students visit different countries of Europe, Asia and Africa, while being enrolled to one program, and expand their horizons. He said they were confident that they needed to establish closer ties with the Russian universities because both parties could learn from each other. Mr. Elie-Dit-Cosaque suggested that a master double degree program be launched. It could become a solid foundation for further studies in the post-graduate training department. During the meeting, the parties also discussed fuel and energy sector research cooperation opportunities and joint efforts that can be made via the Graduates' Association as well as other topical issues. After the meeting, the French delegation visited the Financial University Museum of Finance.
