An MBA with a Difference

European MBA

The Full Time MBA Programme vision for the new definition of business education it has created is based on a unique mix of three dimensions:

- Entrepreneurial leadership - SKOLKOVO breeds a generation of leaders who are effective agents of change, who see potential where others see only challenges and difficulties.
- Fast-moving economies  - Instead of the approach at traditional schools, where the emphasis is on theory over practice, at SKOLKOVO the majority of students' time will be spent "action learning" - learning by doing - on five real projects in four countries.
- Experiential Learning - a new model of education, "action learning" - learning by doing. SKOLKOVO paves the way for entrepreneurial leaders to create success in fast-moving economies, such as China, India and Russia

The most important difference at SKOLKOVO is that we put you at the centre of the pedagogical process. Our faculty are some of the most respected business thinkers and doers from many of the best business schools in the world. They have experience from Russia, as well as other countries with fast-moving economies, as well as the West. We also have a host of coaches and experts whose participation in the programme is focused directly on you. We have turned the standard pedagogical model upside down, so participants spend more time learning by doing, instead of listening to faculty members telling them what to do. SKOLKOVO provides its MBA students with the knowledge that they need to be successful, realising at the same time that this is not enough to help programme participants develop into real leaders and managers of change. More important are the expertise and experience that you will gain with us.
