"Perhaps our best asset is the research that MIT faculty generates and brings into the classroom. The faculty who come here are all research faculty."

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 have followed some courses here to see how the faculty teach. I am looking for fresh stuff. We are a young school. We are still shaping our future. It’s useful to know how MIT Sloan does things and why. MIT is unique.”
