Moscow State University of Railway Engineering, until recently named after L.M Kaganovich (MIIT), or Russian: Московский государственный университет путей сообщения, is the leading and largest higher education institution in the field of railway transport in Moscow, Russia, with more than 17,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students. In Soviet times, along with the Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas, MIIT was known for giving Jewish applicants a fairer chance at admission, while other universities tacitly instituted quotas and impediments for students of Jewish origin. Every year about 25,000 top managers and specialists take professional development courses at MIIT.[1]
