  3. 3. Russian School of Managementwith a Global Focus Saint Petersburg University Graduate School of Management is located in the city founded in 1703 as the Russia’s “window to Europe” by the outstanding Russian reformer – Peter the Great. In March 1697 he became the first Russian Tsar to undertake a historic trip to several Western European coun- tries which resulted in systemic reforms of the Russian state. Those reforms gave rise to Russia’s global competitiveness – and today one might call this strategy on Peter the Great’s part as “going global”. This historical excursus may be a good metaphor to introduce you to St. Petersburg University GSOM. It was started from scratch in 1993 as the first business school inside a major national university in order to support Russia’s transition to a market economy, and in partnerships with Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley and several international and Professor Valery S. Katkalo local companies, led by Procter & Gamble. After 18 years of Vice-Rector, St.Petersburg University and Dean, Graduate School of Management dynamic growth GSOM today is the leading and most inter- nationally recognized Russian business school, and is press- ing forward with strong support from the Russian government and national and global business communities to become a world-class school of management. While in the time of Peter the Great the main subjects for Rus- sians to study abroad were shipbuilding and military science, in the 21st century advances in management and human capital factor are key to the country’s economic growth and competitiveness. We at Saint Petersburg University GSOM present learning opportunities in a large spectrum of degree programs in management – from Bachelor to EMBA. All these programs are designed and delivered (many of them in English) in collaboration with leading international busi- ness schools, especially those belonging to the CEMS, PIM, GBSN, EABiS, and GRLI global networks where our school is the only Russian member. Faculty development and research capabilities are top priori- ties for the implementation of GSOM’s ambitious competitive strategy. Our faculty is well known for its teaching excel- lence, and research productivity (measured by publications in top international journals) is growing at an impressive rate. Our school is also unique in having its own (and the largest) collection of Russian cases registered at ECCH. Among the main foundations for GSOM’s further growth are its traditionally strong and diversified corporate connections. About 150 companies provide internships for our students. Many Russian and international business leaders are guest speakers at GSOM, provide other valuable resources for its development, and recruit its graduates. This brochure will provide you with more information on St.Petersburg University GSOM. I would like to invite you to become part of this innovative international institution – as a student, an academic colleague or a corporate partner. 3
