“MIT Sloan is a serious research environment, and that reverberates in the classroom. Students are eager to participate in research, not just review finished case studies. They have the opportunity to see research unfold.”
Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO
In 2009, MIT Sloan and the Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO launched a series of joint programs aimed at strengthening SKOLKOVO’s international capacity in business and management education and exposing MIT Sloan faculty and students to a new range of global developments and challenges.
The collaboration, which signified Russia’s first full-time MBA program at SKOLKOVO’s state-of-the-art campus outside of Moscow, included classes and other training for SKOLKOVO MBA and EMBA students at MIT Sloan and lectures by MIT Sloan faculty at SKOLKOVO. MIT Sloan also shared its experience in various aspects of academic administration (marketing, student services, admissions, career development) and in areas related to structuring and running research programs.
"Three things impress me the most here at MIT: energy, diversity, and creativity. As an IFF, I am so fortunate to be here and to learn from the "masters" of graduate education. Everyone here is so generous that they share with us their experiences and expertise. It is truly an eye-opening and mind-blowing adventure which I will remember forever."
