...First and foremost, the programme instils you with tremendous confidence in yourself and boosts your self-reliance. You understand that you can do absolutely everything, and no obstacles will prevent you from succeeding.

Participation in the programme provided me with a fantastic networking opportunity and chance to mingle informally with other students, whom I can now turn to if I need experts in various fields.

For me the SKOLKOVO Executive MBA programme was a wonderful opportunity to structure the working knowledge that I had accumulated. Study on the programme helped me arrange my experiences in their proper places, and also obtain a new toolkit. As a result, you come away with the feeling that you know precisely what needs to be done and when.

The school set itself the ambitious objective of training future leaders. And this is actually happening right here and right now. I think that in 10-15 years the SKOLKOVO alumni will comprise Russia’s business elite and not only Russia’s elite...

Alexey Karpenko
EMBA 7 (2012–2013)
Forward Legal, Senior Partner

...I can honestly say that I had never met so many creative and good-natured people in my entire life before joining the school. My group mates are my potential clients, my potential referees, potential colleagues, and co-owners of future businesses that we plan to create. As well as the formidable amount of new knowledge, reasoning and skills, the SKOLKOVO Executive MBA programme provides you with a huge emotional boost to try something new in your profession and business, to try out a completely different business, and consider other ideas. It is virtually impossible to move on and create something new without this boost...

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.
