Interview with the graduate of the EMBA program GM4 and the CEO at the “Green Development” (Georgia) Mamuka Machavariani about his studies at the Stockholm School of Economics in Russia.

That’s so great. I could not explain just by words! After graduation SSE helped me efficiently manage my offices in Moscow, Kiev, Tbilisi and Washington DC. After SSE I made definitely career move and wealth fortune, my income increased perpetually at least by 25%, yearly. Most what I achieved also was in private/family life..I am father of 4 children and I am PROUD of IT! At least one of them will be SSE graduate!

Advantages of SSE in Russia: Access to the Russia, CIS, EU and USA job markets; Top listed graduate school at most recognized ranking (FT for example); Western brad thinking; Great brand, great professors, great classmates, great alumni network (still need a lot of work), part of SSE global:just few advantages I can name.

When I choose graduate school most important things were: school brand; networking; Russia is great opportunity market. SSE exceeded my expectation in terms of getting so many things (I named above) within 2-3 years and for just 1/3 price of Volvo.

Just short remainder regarding Harvard Business School “70% out of executive HBS tuition price is NETWORKING”. As SSE Alumni active member I’d like insist all SSE brand associated professionals to be twice active to achieve 5 times more success in business and family career!

The process of getting prime education, communicating with outstanding professionals, implementing knowledge into real business and networking were defiantly most interesting during SSE Executive MBA life!
