The article discusses development of an integrated approach of teaching English to students majoring in Management and IT technologies in the Ural State University of Economics and describes the experience of its implementation. Current trends in education require the use of non-traditional means in class to activate students’ potential and help them master the necessary competences. This integrated approach meets the requirements of the educational standard and is based on the survey among students held to reveal their needs and interests in a foreign language. It exceeds the boundaries of the textbook (which is still the basis for learning) and includes participation in multi-university projects and scientific conferences, use of on-line resources and creative tasks.
