SSE Russia launches a new format of EMBA GM program

The world – and the demands on business leaders – have changed considerably over these past two decades. In 2020, SSE Russia is relaunching the new Executive MBA program with a few major developments that reflects the evolution and contemporary market needs.

It is considered that business education is about obtaining knowledge. Today, the knowledge that distinguishes a business leader is the knowledge that can't be found on Google or on short term training sessions and webinars. 

The Stockholm School of Economics in Russia business model of education is based on communication with both a group of like-minded people and European experts. An essential principle is the emphasis on the diversity of life and professional experience of students and faculty staff. This makes it possible to exchange cases and ideas and to deal with multifactorial problems that would be difficult to solve on their own.

The admission is ongoing. The launch of the new group of Executive MBA General Management program at Stockholm School of Economics in Russia is on March 25, 2020. The deadline for application is on March, 20 2020

The Stockholm School of Economics in Russia new Executive MBA 2020 program is designed not just about the knowledge. It is about new experience, new skills, new approaches to problem solving.

The main advantages of the new program are:

  • The new edition of the program focuses more content on the global megatrends that affect policymakers in all sectors, including digitalization, globalization and sustainable development. Program participants will have an opportunity to learn the basics of doing business in Russia, Stockholm, Luleå (the second largest contributor to Sweden's GDP after Stockholm), Tel Aviv.
  • The Executive MBA GM program consists of 13 modules distributed over 20 months of studying. The modules lasts for 4-6 days per month, so participants do not fall out of the workflow for a long time and can easily plan and fit the program curriculum into their work schedule.
  • Participants of the new EMBA 2020 program will have the opportunity to communicate and learn together with participants and Alumni from Sweden and Latvia during the cross-cultural module.
  • Participants will be offered the international elective models (by choice).

To prepare confident leaders with fresh perspectives and new ideas open to the changes and future challenges, SSE EMBA 2020 builds on the FREE concept:

F – facts and science based mindset:

A habit for critical thinking that helps graduates cut through the growing complexity of the world and information overload, helps tell real news from fake news, and helps make decisions on real facts, not alternative facts. The new EMBA program will have even more discussions in the classroom, challenging participants to critically assess each other’s arguments as they go through business cases from around the world.

R – reflective & self-aware:

practising Reflection and growing greater Self-Awareness encourages continuous building of one’s leadership style. The new edition of the program will include elements of coaching to help participants better understand what motivates them, their behavior in teams, and what major blind spots they may have.

E – empathetic & culturally literate:

These topics are important underlying themes of the program helping students develop the capabilities that will set humans apart from machines as AI and robots become a greater part of the labor force. One step in that direction is a joint module on Cross-Cultural Management, in which EMBA participants from across the Stockholm School of Economics family of program in Stockholm, Riga and St.Petersburg learn together with each other and about each other.

E – entrepreneurial & responsible:

Entrepreneurship and creativity are combined with the obligations that leaders have to their communities. From classroom modules in which participants develop fresh ideas through design thinking to field projects in which they need to identify opportunities and create real change in their organizations.
