Christian Guéritte (Total Professeurs Associés) gave lectures on petroleum economy in two Russian universities

The first week of December, Christian Gueritte, member of Total Professeurs Associés (TPA), was teaching his Oil & Gas and Global Economic Issues course in the Moscow Institute of International Relations (MGIMO). Nearly 40 students, both Russian and international, attended the course.

On December 1, 2015, just after the lecture in MGIMO, the professor went to Higher School of Economics (HSE) to give a master class in Investment Decision Process and Petroleum & Energy Economics as part of the Advanced Master in International Business program. This is the second master class of Christian Guéritte in HSE (see more about the master class 2014), and it is highly appreciated by the students and the professors of the HSE International Institute of Administration and Business.

Total Professeurs Associés was established in July 2001. Its goal is to build bridges between the oil industry and academic circles by delegating professors or experts who deliver technical or business-related presentations. Member professors are working or retired Total Group employees who lecture in their field of expertise. Together, they cover all the technical and non-technical areas that a large international group can encompass. TPA is our key partner in establishing and maintaining cooperation with Russian universities.


6 Russian Universities are benefitting of TPA lectures; in 2015, 15 integral weeks of teaching have been provided in Moscow, Arkhangelsk and Ukhta.  

Christian Gueritte joined Total in 1975. In 1990-1995, he was the Director for Russia and CIS.
