Saint Petersburg, Russia

Saint Petersburg State University of Economics and Finance as it was known formally was established in 1930 as "Leningrad Institute of Finance and Economics" ). It is now united with Saint Petersburg State University of Service and Economics and Saint Petersburg State University of Engineering and Economics to create Saint Petersburg State University of Economics.The campus of the University occupies the buildings of the former Assignation Bank, which were designed by the famous Italian architect Giacomo Quarenghi.

Acoustical Physics

The paper is devoted to simulating an acoustic field scattered by an elastic spherical shell placed in a waveguide with a fluid attenuating bottom. The emitted signal is a wideband pulse with a Gaussian envelope. The normal wave method is used in the frequency domain for calculating the field of a point source in a free waveguide and the shell scattering coefficients. Movement of the receiver along a vertical straight line located behind the shell makes it possible to obtain a "three-dimensional" image of the field scattered by the shell. In this representation, the horizontal axis is time; the vertical axis is the submersion depth of the receiver; the intensity shows the amplitude of the received signal. Such three-dimensional structures make it possible to analyze the dependence of the complex diffraction structure of the acoustic field on receiver depth. In the considered numerical example, a thin, elastic, spherical shell is located near the attenuating fluid bottom. © 2014 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd. Source

Reliability is one of the most important characteristics of the functioning of supply chains. The carried out analysis have shown that, despite some progress, a number of questions remain open, in particular, the terminology, the selection of key indicators and methods of their calculation as well as there is no economic evaluation of redundant and restorable supply chains. The paper presents a formed conceptual apparatus of logistics systems' reliability theory, the discrete-continuous model of the simple supply chain's functioning as well as it contains the proposal to assess the reliability not only with the help of faultlessness but as well by using the leading function of costs associated with the maintenance of supply chains' operability. © 2014 Transport and Telecommunication Institute.

The attractiveness of university for students and the credibility of the diploma for employers are largely determined by ranking of the education institution. Rankings of the best universities in the world are regularly compiled by various agencies. Recognition of the education institution at the international level is becoming increasingly important for universities around the world. Due to the relevance of this issue, the article examines the main methodology of well-known international rankings, namely QS World University Ranking, developed by consulting company Quacquarelli Symonds, and THE World University Rankings, based on the methodology of the British «Times Higher Education» edition. The purpose of this study is to analyze the factors affecting the international credibility of the Russian higher education. The article analyzes the ranking system of the Russian universities and identifies university priority development areas in order to increase the international outlook of the Russian higher education, as well as to enhance competitiveness in the global market for education and to enter the international rankings. Authors consider the status of the Russian higher education in the world educational process and identify the causes of unreasonably low ranking of the Russian universities according to leading ranking agencies. Also, a comparative study of the Russian and foreign universities was conducted in the context of QS ranking factors, and the necessity of the state incitement for improving competiveness of Russian universities was revealed and substantiated. The feasibility of using the estimated quantitative performance indicator to assess the scientific merit of publications is considered as well. The authors propose a set of measures that will help to ensure university departments to increase the number of publications in international scientific journals, and as a result, raise science citation index of the articles published by the Russian scientists.

In the context of rapidly growing demand for higher education, the relevance of the global rankings of the universities increases all over the world. Results of these rankings not only allow evaluation of the higher education quality, but also affect its competitiveness in the educational market. Recognition of the educational institution at the international level is becoming increasingly important for universities around the world. Due to the relevance of the issue, the paper explores the methodology of compiling international ranking, namely "QS World University Ranking". The authors conducted a quantitative analysis of the distribution of universities, represented in QS ranking, across the various countries. Application of ABC-analysis made it possible to demonstrate that the QS ranking, which originally was created as an instrument of competition of leading universities in the most developed countries in educational space, due to its broad advertising opportunities became attractive for universities of different countries in their efforts toward attracting the students. The priority areas for the university development are identified to raise the international credibility and competitiveness of the Russian higher education. To reach a new level, Russian universities need a breakthrough in every field. Three main vectors are highlighted as priority ones; these are scientific, innovative and international activities of universities. In the next 5-7 years every Russian university will face the challenge to create a new dynamic, globally competitive environment, which will attract both world-renowned scientists and talented students from all over the world. This environment will provide the opportunity to take part in the prestigious educational curriculums, research activities, and custom project developments for the global industry leaders, as well as communication in the international scientific and educational environment.
