For IBS graduates and students
No full-time MBA is conducted. This is caused by poor demand for full-time MBA in Russia: students who are opting for full-time studies choose Pre-experienced Master in Management programs.
In today’s rapidly changing business environment, most Russian managers cannot afford leaving their jobs for a 2-year training period. They opt for receiving business education without giving up their work.
The program is divided into 5 majors:
Marketing and Sales Management
Human Resource Management
Entrepreneurship and Corporate Management
Value Creation Management
