Interview with the graduate of the EMBA program Oil&Gas-2 and Governor of Novgorod Region Andrey Nikitin about his studies at the Stockholm School of Economics in Russia.
When a friend asked me why he should go the Stockholm School of Economics I replied that this is the last opportunity for an accomplished adult to find friends. For me the Stockholm School of Economics, first of all, is a place where I met many interesting people who taught me many things. Secondly, it is an opportunity to feel yourself part of a global world and understand that the company you manage is also an element of the global world. Now I am not involved in business, I work for the state, but I try to use what I learned in SSE: the aim of strategic initiatives we propose to the President of the Russian Federation is for Russia to occupy the right place in the global community. I know that the Stockholm School of Economics Russia plans to develop, it has new projects and we will definitely support these undertakings. When you receive a degree you increase your capitalization, but I would like to wish everyone not only to make money, but to enjoy work and feel yourself needed. I am sure with a degree of the Stockholm School of Economics it will be easier.
