    The curriculum includes offerings of a plethora of foreign languages (from Armenian to Vietnamese), economics, politics, international law, social studies, ecology, philosophy, and physical education (swimming and tennis).  

    The Academy has Regional Chairs (e.g, China, US, Africa, Latin America, etc.) which track events and developments around the world and offer courses on the history, culture and politics of these regions.
    The Academy sponsors roundtable seminars.  These attract business professionals and diplomats from all over the world.  A recent seminar was titled, “Integration of Russia into the Twenty-first Century Democratic World.” 

    According to Tamara Shatova,“The Academy’s mission is to prepare Russians for the future.”
