F1GMAT: SKOLKOVO MBA has put emphasis on Experiential Learning and Entrepreneurship. Can you please elaborate how this will help SKOLKOVO MBA Students?
Anna on SKOLKOVO MBA Experiential Learning
I would like to explain what experiential learning in SKOLKOVO means. Instead of the traditional schools’ approach, where the emphasis is on theory over practice, at SKOLKOVO the majority of students’ time will be spent on learning by doing real work projects, which are run in four countries. We want our students to be educated by their own experiences. Our education philosophy combines first-hand experience with relevant academic studies.
SKOLKOVO MBA students work on 5 real projects during the 12-month course for companies in China, Russia, the US and India. Therefore, they learn how to work in real working environment and are brought into the realities of local business culture.
That is why we consider SKOLKOVO MBA programme is for those who choose:
- Real projects instead of Business Cases
- Worldwide experience in 4 countries instead of one-dimensional experience
- BRIC countries and Entrepreneurial Experience
Entrepreneurship: This is one of our unique differentiators. SKOLKOVO MBA is aimed at developing entrepreneurial leadership for those who want to work in BRIC economies. The final module of the programme is called start-up module and provides an opportunity for the students to develop their own innovative ideas over the course and then work intensively during the final phase with mentors and experts to launch their own businesses.
The start-up module includes both coursework to give students the formal foundational knowledge they need, as well as hands-on experience in analyzing and refining their business plans before they present their companies to a large group of professional venture capitalists and angel investors. Our Alumni have successfully launched their businesses and changed from corporate careers to Entrepreneurial ones.
