Objective of the study was to rate stress tolerance of students of G.V. Plekhanov Russian University of Economics majoring in Sport Industry Management by modern psychological test methods. Subject to the study were the first-to-third-year students majoring in Sport Industry Management. The subjects’ academic stress coping abilities were tested by the Hobfoll’s Strategic Approach to Coping Scale (SACS) method adapted by N. Vodopyanov and Y. Starchenkov. The negative changes in behaviours of students were found detrimental to their relationship with the peers and educators. A special emphasis was made on the correlation of the individual coping strategy with the typical individual characteristics including cognitive, intellectual, motivational etc. It was also noted that the academic environment at the university was designed to protect the physical and mental health of students and faculty to secure stable academic progress.

Keywords: stress, mental stress, coping strategies, coping behaviour, stress effects.
