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.

– 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.
