According to the report, the agreement was signed on June 6 at the Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum by Nornickel’s VP Sergey Batehin, IBM’s general manager in Russia and CIS countries Iris Dzeba, and the MIPT’s rector Nikolay Kudryavtsev.

The university will reportedly prepare and launch master’s and postgraduate programs, with the first students in the “blockchain” major expected to start their studies in the fall of 2019.
