"A very supportive and collaborative atmosphere, for brainstorming and exchanging ideas with faculty members, classmates and colleagues. Surprises happen every day."

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 was really impressed by the leading research level and quality of the entire Work and Organization Studies faculty group at Sloan and the weekly IWER seminars I attend offer me a fantastic academic learning experience, which helped me greatly for my work in the field."
