Throughout its history the university has established and maintains international relationships with more than fifty universities in twenty-five countries of the world. The main focus is on long-term projects aimed at making educational and research activities meet world standards.
Within the framework of an international cooperation program our University carries out the following activities:

Our university is a member of Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), European Council for Business Education (ECBE), Institute of International Education (IIE), International Society for Engineering Education (IGIP).
The focus in international academic cooperation is on the realization of mutually beneficial programs of academic exchange and joint projects which allow students to get Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree training in foreign universities. The aim of SibSAU is to have an average of 10% of student body as foreign students studying at university. We also encourage students of SibSAU to participate in different programs of student mobility.
On the average more than 50 foreign students come to SibSAU each year mostly as exchange students or for summer courses and internship. Up to 25-30 students of SibSAU study each year abroad as exchange students or for double diplomas.
Most student mobility programs have been developed with the US universities, the universities of the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary and Holland. A lot of students from the CIS study at SibSAU which is specific for all Russian universities. Student exchange and study abroad programs are organized under SibSAU bilateral agreements with such European higher schools as Holland Fontys, Eindhoven, Budapest Business School in Hungary, Czech Technical University in Prague, etc.
Joint projects with two US universities – New York State University, SUNY Oneonta and Dickinson State University – are very popular among SibSAU students. The projects allow students from SibSAU to get dual degrees – the Bachelor’s degree of US university and SibSAU Bachelor’s degree. One more joint program is being currently developed with the International Business School, Hungary. It will allow SibSAU students to get Oxford Brookes University Bachelor’s Degree.
