My impressions are extremely positive. I think this is a major achievement for Russia – to have a business school like SKOLKOVO. I like here the top quality professors and also the actual group and friendly environment in which we study.
Ravi Sachdeva
Meridian Technologies, Director General

I selected SKOLKOVO from all other world-class Executive MBA programmes, because I was impressed by the school’s founders and team, their clear vision and professional approach. The faculty is made up of internationally recognised professors from the world’s top business schools, while the programme focuses on rapidly developing markets. Based on my own personal experience I can say that studying at SKOLKOVO complies 100% with any other world-class business school.

– List you key achievements from the programme at present.

– SKOLKOVO gives me best-practice knowledge. I don’t have the core education – in terms of education I am an engineer, and by profession a businessman. De facto I create businesses based on my own experience. However, now I am arranging the general principles, grades and levels. This is a systematic picture, a framework that doesn't change. In the past I could do something that might have worked out, but I didn’t understand why. Here, I was shown the reasons and taught the methods.

– Have you already applied any of your knowledge at work?

– I really liked the module on strategy. This is an interesting topic. There are lot of books about this topic, but I don’t have enough time for them. Here the teacher provides you with a tool that you can use right away. This is already a starting point, and not too much knowledge that you don’t know how to filter. We receive specific working methods, and they can be applied to any company and any project. I also have my own experience and the comments of my classmates – immediately ideas are reviewed from the perspective of experience in different sectors. That is how you start to create a tool that you can immediately use at your own company.

– How did the programme affect your personal growth?

– I look at the people here, at their rational and effective qualities. If they comply with my moral principles and rules, I start to copy these qualities and adapt them to my own personal needs. I make a certain mould from them.

– How would you explain why a student should apply to SKOLKOVO?

– The people enrolling here can be split into two categories: people who want development and people who want to discover something new about themselves and change their lives. Both categories find what they need here. The first group of people develop, while the second expand their social circle and broaden their horizons. And they all make new acquaintances. The business contacts that you make here help you to achieve a great deal.
