In 2003, Gruzdev defended his thesis on "Legal status of civil servants of the Russian Federation and organizational and legal bases for the functioning of the system of training, retraining and advanced training" at the Department of Administrative Law of the Moscow University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. In 2013, the Dissernet community found that the whole content of the work was plagiarism: 168 of 182 pages were entirely copied from the original work of Pavel Vostrikov "Organizational and legal problems of training, retraining and upgrading of civil servants", defended in 1998. Despite this, the academic degree of Vladimir Gruzdev was confirmed, as more than three years had passed since the defense of the thesis before the discovery of plagiarism.>.


In 2005 he entered the Russian rating of Forbes magazine with net worth of 0.34 billion dollars (89th place) for the first time. In 2014, his fortune reached a peak of $1.3 billion, which allowed Gruzdev to take 79th place in the ranking.

At the end of 2015, based on materials received from the Government of the Tula region, Mishchenko and the chairman of the Union for the Protection of Disabled People and Participants in the Elimination of the Consequences of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Novomoskovsk, Gennady Yefimov, were charged with transferring to coverup firms the budget funds that were supposed to be grants for the rehabilitation of "Chernobyl victims". On March 17, 2017 Novomoskovsk city court of the Tula region found Mishchenko guilty of fraud and sentenced to 2.5 years of imprisonment.


On February 2, 2016, he resigned at his own request. The official reason of the resignation - family circumstances (his daughter was born). Accepting his resignation, Vladimir Putin commented that "Vladimir Sergeevich is a Muscovite, he wants to be closer to Moscow." Other versions of his dismissal circulated in the press later: his dismissal was caused by a criminal case against the closest assistant Maxim Mishchenko, as well as an investigation of misappropriation of grants worth 3 billion rubles in favor of trading house "Medved" and the company "Baltika". There was also a version according to which during the governorship Gruzdev violated the law and continued to engage in entrepreneurial activities and took direct part in the management of the company "Modny Continent."
