GRADUATES

Sergey Eluferiev, lawyer, MBA program «Corporate Director» graduate

The program got me back to my alma mater, where I received my degree in International Law in 1999. I did my research on many other MBA programs from various educational institutions. I ended up applying for the «Corporate Director» program in my university and I never regretted my decision.
You can be sure that the traditionally high for MGIMO teaching level has remained on its level until today. I was impressed not only by the quality of the theoretical material taught in the school but also by the number of practical issues which were thoroughly broken down for us by the lecturers among whom were biggest experts from the leading Russian and international corporations. I think it was this practical experience that we were able adopt that, in my opinion, turned out to be the most relevant for all listeners of the program.
What has my chosen MBA program given to me? At the end of the day, it was reassessment and adjustment of the already acquired knowledge and experience as well as acquiring the new ones, meeting some great new people, discovering for ourselves new professional opportunities and areas. For me my MBA degree is primarily a mark of my personal growth and then my career development. I want to say thank you to all the people responsible for creating this program as well as the teaching staff.

Such a wide range of practical experience allowed me to discover for myself new dimensions in the field of communications activity. Each lesson was useful and relevant for me. Thank you!
