‘GSOM is the only business school in Russia providing such a broad range of international opportunities, both business and academic. It is also a remarkable place because of the people who teach here – they are ambitious, open to new ideas and very friendly. Studying at GSOM for two years made me a truly international person and gave a head start to my career.’
