    The relevance of this topic was confirmed by the reaction of the audience, which was actively involved in the discussion. As a result, one of the most promising areas was identified: involving universities in long-term interaction with employing companies.

    «This is not the easiest way, but it is effective. Students from the finalist teams traditionally get the opportunity to have an internship at the Metropolis offices, and the best of them receive a job offer and join our team as employees. Participation of student teams in CASE-IN is a chance to gain experience in solving professional problems in conditions as close as possible to business realities, the ability to build communications in a project team and defend their solutions. Young professionals gain an understanding of what a competitive environment and feel involved in the professional community», - Alla Seregina said.
