International Commercial Joint Venture: Designing, Reviewing and Negotiating Joint Venture Agreement and all related agreements and documents

About the project

The project is planned as an international one in the field of International Commercial Joint Ventures, which is being implemented for the first time in the 2021/2022 academic year by the School of International Regional Studies of the Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs, National Research University Higher School of Economics (Russian Federation) in cooperation with Orion Partners AS, Technical and Mercantile Consulting company, Norway, а consulting company with more than 30 years of experience in Norwegian and international oil and gas projects, including in Russia.

The project consists of two parts: practice-oriented and research.

The students will be invited to participate in a four month simulation exercise involving setting up an international joint venture to win and execute a contract for a major project in the Russian and oil and gas sector.

Planned Outcomes

The students will work with a realistic case and within a realistic context. The case will be designed by Orion Partners AS using its 30+ years of experience. The two academic mentors will attend to the theoretical aspects.

When the participants have completed the project, they will have:

1) Learned to apply a “Risk Management” approach to international business cooperation

2) Learned about the risks involved in entering into Joint Ventures, and how best to manage those risks

3) Through an interactive, action learning process, involving an actual case study and realistic documents, worked with some of the details that are important to understand when working in Joint Ventures

4) Considered the key commercial and legal issues that are important in Joint Ventures

5) Examined how to manage and resolve conflicts which often occur in Joint Ventures

6) Reviewed and analysed a set of typical documents which will be needed in the Joint Venture.

Case

The students will be invited to attend virtual lectures, conduct meetings (some facilitated) both internally and with their counterparts, receive examples of necessary documents to be developed/dealt with during a JV set up). Students will also be required to make presentations which will be reviewed and assessed by mentors.

According to the results of the project, students will have to make presentations, which will be considered and evaluated by the project mentors at the final international online conference, and prepare an essay on the project topic, which will later be recommended for publication in the proceedings of the international conference at one of the European universities.

Within the framework of this project, students will review the literature and sources on the project topic, work with documents, prepare a presentation and an essay on the project topic and present the results of their work at the final online conference.

The aim of this project is to form students' knowledge and develop practical and research skills in the field of creating international joint commercial ventures, understanding the key goals of their creation, the organizational and legal forms of these JV, the stages of creation, the key risks associated with the creation and functioning of JV.

The project will be implemented in Russian and English.
