"This country has never had proper managers, and I decided the only way to develop them was to build my own school and teach these skills." New Business Technologies, which opened in November, preaches hard work and discipline around the clock. The 101 students, all men ages 17 to 22, live in tightly supervised dorms, adhere to a strict schedule and are in coat and tie by the time they hit the cafeteria for breakfast. There are no women because school officials contend the physical aspects like jogging are too difficult for them. In the five-year program, the students never will be required to open a dry, Soviet tome on socialist economics. In their first semester, the essential reading includes the autobiography of Lee lacocca, the brash American car executive, and "The Alchemy of Finance" by billionaire investor George Soros. After classes, students focus on practical projects, such as canvassing food stores to research Russian buying habits. Dovgan had no trouble finding eager recruits for his school, which he finances out of his own pocket and which charges no tuition. With jobs scarce everywhere, particularly outside cities, young Russians have been hit hard by the country's transformation to free markets just like everyone else. But the flip side of the upheaval is that young people also have been the most nimble in adapting to the market economy. Many of Russia's most innovative companies are led by executives in their 30s, or even their 20s. Youth and energy count for more than experience. Back in the Soviet era, bright university students gravitated toward subjects including literature, science and engineering. When they graduated, the reward was a secure, if uninspiring, gov- These are the permits issued recently by the Salina Permits and Inspections Department and the Saline County Planning and Zoning Department.

Today, they want to study economics, master computers and learn English. They plan to start their own businesses, or perhaps join a multinational company doing business in Russia. A recent survey reflected the spirit of the times. When 1,000 high school seniors were asked what they wanted to be, the top three responses were accountant, economist and banker. Teacher, doctor and civil servant fared poorly, and only one person aspired to be a cosmonaut. In establishing his school, Dovgan and his associates interviewed thousands of candidates, picking those who appeared to have exceptional drive even if they didn't have the best grades. "I looked for people who wake up in the morning and can't wait to go to work," he said. "I want people who would rather die than take a day off and sit around idly."
