Interview with the graduate of the EMBA program GMR2 and Director of logistical support division LLC “Stroygazconsulting” Ilya Likhachev about his studies at the Stockholm School of Economics in Russia.

Russian economy if getting globalized and it is important to have a global view on the existing tasks.

Unfortunately in Russia today there is no our own economics or management school.The market economy in Russia is still at the beginning of its development and there is a lack of adequate management and economic experience.

At the same time answers to those questions have been known for a long time, since the world scientific though was developing in this area for two hundred years, and in the USSR these sciences had third roles. Russian lecturers have some theoretical knowledge, but they do not know how it can be used in practice. Besides, this knowledge is in disintegrated pieces. This knowledge can be quite broad in a specific area, but it does not present a system. Course are not linked to each other, they often have no connecting points. This is like a pile of car parts of not very high quality, some of them are made of gold, but it is not a vehicle. Many parts are made correctly, but you cannot drive it. And does a car need parts made of gold?
