Interviews for SKOLKOVO MBA

F1GMAT: Will the Interviews be conducted on-Campus, through phone/Skype or during World MBA Tours?

Anna Nekrasova(SKOLKOVO MBA): Our admission is different. We admit candidates in an unconventional way. For instance, we ask candidates to prepare a video presentation instead of traditional essays. We want to see the passion in the candidate’s eyes to change the world. The candidate should be motivated to join the SKOLKOVO community.

After evaluating the candidate with video presentation, a personal interview is conducted by SKOLKOVO’s directors, founding partners and Alumni. The interview is conducted in a non-structural way with live discussions, which would help us evaluate your attitude, global view and vision. Admission to the programme is like a marriage: both parties should agree on engagement. Thus, you choose and you’re chosen at the same time.
