“Rather than produce a ‘cookie-cutter’ replica of MIT Sloan, the MIT-China Management Education Project encourages Chinese management faculty to develop MIT Sloan’s knowledge base responsively to local context and opportunity.”

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. 

“I need to prepare my syllabus for the course I will teach so I am paying attention to course management. My co-advisor, Erik Brynjolffsson, is helping me to benefit from his course as much as possible."
