It was dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the University. The meeting was organized by the Financial University, the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Mongolia, and the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Ulan Bator. The Financial University organized such an event abroad for the first time. This was a historic event that was undoubtedly unique. It generated great interest of the Mongolian graduates, general public, and the leading Mongolian media. The event was covered in detail in the evening news programs on the TELEVISION 1 TV channel of the Mongolian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (MNB).
Today, more than 180 Financial University graduates live in Mongolia. The majority of them make a significant contribution to the development of partner relations with Russia. Distinguished economists, bankers, auditors, civil servants, and heads of major financial and industrial companies are among the University graduates. At the gala evening in the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Ulan Bator, more than 100 people gathered who had graduated from the Financial University since 1980. In his video address, M. A.
