...The SKOLKOVO Executive MBA programme is, first of all, a unique environment. The environment enables you to learn by drawing on the experience of other people. The experience, the bundle of knowledge that we received from each other in class, is as great as the input that we received from the academic component of the programme. To my mind, if you want to live, work and do business in Russia, there is no alternative. Apply to SKOLKOVO!...

– Could you please list your key achievements from the programme?

I found group communications most interesting. I participated in two events - XL-trek on Everest and diving. Trekking on Everest was my first experience in the mountains, a challenging physical and psychological test. However, it was very interesting. I got to know people from different groups and we communicated a great deal – we ended up having a debating club as part of the trip.

– In your opinion, what arguments would you propose in favour of studying at SKOLKOVO?

Several people have also asked me this question. I asked them the following question in return: do they just want to acquire a set of knowledge, or do they want to become part of the Russian community and find people they will communicate and become friends with? At SKOLKOVO the community is key – intelligent, strong and talented individuals.

...I was one of the last students to enrol on the Executive MBA programme. I believe that this was one of the best decisions that I have taken in my life. Personally I benefited not only from the knowledge, but also from socialising in a new business environment...
