The Faculty of Communication, Media, and Design, named as such by the clever students of CoMeDe, offers an education completely unique to Russia. The Faculty’s goal is to help creative people become even more creative and to offer diligent students the incredible opportunity of being inventive with their zeal. Who do we prepare? People able to create shows like the opening ceremony of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi or the 2012 Summer Games in London. Our department prepares bachelor’s students of design, journalism, and advertising, and we understand the importance of working as a team. This is the only way to achieve success in today's world. We teach students how to see, narrate, convince, and transform. And always be on the crest of a wave.

It is believed that the card with questions should be pulled with your right hand, if you stepped into the audience with your right foot, and, conversely, if you came in with your left foot, then pull the card with your left hand.
