Five advantages of the unique for Russia program for managers and top managers compared to our competitors:

  1. Foreign faculty and Swedish methodology of inclusive education
  2. Most of the course takes place in Russia.
  3. Strong theoretical basis and customized combination of new knowledge and realities of your business.
  4. European degree of Executive Master of Business Administration from Stockholm School of Economics.
  5. You will fill this point yourself after the end of the program, but in the meantime, this is what our Alumni say

You're qualified for the EMBA program if you have management experience. However, what is also really important for us is your inner readiness to learn and to change. You are certainly one of our people, if you admit that sometimes competitors are smarter than you, if you agree that there are a lot of intelligent people in the world and want to not just learn new things, but also apply them.

We honestly admit that we don't teach managers how to behave appropriately. Your success is more powerful than our arguments about the utility of theoretical models. But we make professionals even more effective by taking a broader view on business. The Stockholm School of Economics is about new experience, new skills and new approaches to problem solving.


The changes in the program are in line with the FREE pedagogical mission of SSE which means education based on four pillars –

  • Facts and science based mindset,
  • Reflection and self-awareness,
  • Empathy and cultural literacy,
  • Entrepreneurship and responsibility that the leaders have to their communities.
