In August 2010 the President of the Russian Federation issued a decree "On the formation of theRussian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration under the President of RF" (RANEPA). This new educational and research institution is the result of a merger of two major Russian academies: The Academy of National Economy under the Government of RF (ANE) and The Academy of Public Administration under the President of RF (RAPA).

RANEPA delivers business and educational programs and trains civil servants, entrepreneurs, managers, financiers, and lawyers.

RANEPA's teaching excellence manifests itself through the successes of its over 100,000 graduates. Among the Academy's graduates are presidents of newly independent states in the post-Soviet area, prime ministers and ministers, famous financiers and leaders of the Russia industrial sector.

Home to future leaders in the public and business sectors in Russia and abroad, today the Academy constitutes a multi-tier research and educational complex that realizes a continuous education model whose framework incorporates higher education and postgraduate training, as well as tailored professional training.

The Academy's structure has evolved over time to incorporate 15 departments, 3 research institutes, regional branches, as well as multiple research and training centers. RANEPA's faculty is formed by prominent Russian academicians representing the riches of research interests and a rainbow of the most advanced methodologies.
