Training of top managers is one of the most complex educational processes, which implementation is possible only through joining efforts of the academic, professional, expert and business communities. The right balance of professional, supra-professional, engineering, technological and managerial competences of the current and future managers is of key importance for the mining industry. Historically, the development of the Russian business education was based on partnerships and on the standards of the leading Western business schools. At the same time, in the context of the conflict between the West and the East, it is impossible to ignore the presence of other trends in economic relations, new models and new ways of life, which will inevitably emerge in the development of partnership relations between the Russian Federation and the East. In this respect, business education programs are becoming a Soft Power tool, which can be used to translate the new patterns into the business community, as well as to formalize new challenges that the state is facing. Some views proposed by the authors in terms of the model implementation of the new economic relations and their projection into the educational space of top management training, as exemplified by the mining industry, contribute to reaching a balance in the new production relations.
