Stockholm School of Economics became a partner of ROSNANO in the field of business education

The program was developed specifically for Connector Optics, Russian-German company working in the field of innovations, and has to help employees of the company to obtain the knowledge and to develop the business skills necessary for strategic planning and sales on international markets.

Dr. Anders Liljenberg, Dean of Stockholm School of Economics, Russia, says, "Success of a company on the international and domestic markets is composed of many factors but a well balanced team of professionals is the determinant. It is important to understand that a brilliant engineering team cannot create and implement a brilliant marketing strategy without due education and understanding of the market."

Lecturers of Stockholm School of Economics, Russia will let the students look inside of all business processes of the organization and thus to obtain a whole picture of functioning of the company. Employees of Connector Optics will study the main methods of strategic analysis and modern tools of strategic planning. The successfully studied course will result in a strong team of professionals with a high level of managerial culture aimed at development of the company.

Leonid Karachinsky, general director of Connector Optics, says, "One of the main problems of Russian hi-tech companies today is insufficient experience of business vision. The companies have technologies but do not have a clear understanding what they should do to them in conditions of the international market."
