...Within, literally, the first hours at the SKOLKOVO Executive MBA programme, I realised that during all my 10 years as proactive businessman and entrepreneur I had been doing all the right things, of course, but in the wrong way. This is about effectiveness and efficiency. So, in the first place, the SKOLKOVO Executive MBA programme equipped me with knowledge, tools and the ability to take the right decisions at the right time. Or to decide not to take any decision – to refrain from performing any unnecessary operations and businesses whose time has still not arrived...

– What knowledge and skills obtained during the programme did you manage to apply in your work?

You come away with something new from each module. Take, for example, the decision tree. I had a problem involving the restructuring of debts running into hundreds of millions of dollars. This brought with it a heavy emotional burden. However, thanks to the decision tree, I was able to look at the situation rationally, understand and start to act. I was also helped by the negotiating module.

In general, all the knowledge is accumulated and streamlined throughout the studies, and you gradually change your way of thinking. As a result many people change their jobs and start aspiring to do something new. When I came to SKOLKOVO, I had to pigeonhole the knowledge I had at the time and understand whether I was using it correctly. I wanted to analyse my own experience and reach the next level. When this transition occurs, you start to communicate with your work colleagues in a new way. Sometimes misunderstandings can occur. Sometimes it can be boring. Sometimes you leave a job due to certain circumstances, whereas in another situation you would have immediately started considering new offers. However, now first and foremost you want to complete your studies.

– How did the programme affect your personal development and performance?

My performance clearly improved. I started to do some things more quickly. During the studies you gain access to new management technologies, methods for performing analysis, etc. After each case I applied the knowledge and skills that I had obtained. This enabled me to organise people in a different way and to identify my own strengths and weaknesses.

...The SKOLKOVO Executive MBA programme pleasantly surprised me in terms of the level of the teaching staff. Literally, starting from the very first module we understood that the school set very high standards when choosing the faculty and working out the educational materials of the programme.

Ours was not the biggest group in the school. But we understood from the first moment that we would have a great time together. The school did a good job in shortlisting the candidates, and all my fellow students are unique bearers of new information for every single one of us. They are all bright and interesting, and everyone brings something special to the process...
