The academic platform is the intellectual centre of the Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO, which is responsible for the development of the educational and research agenda.
Our task is to be a platform for academic communication, to attract world-class professors and researchers, to develop Russian experts, to discover challenges relating to both academic education and business practices, and to generate new ideas. We strive to create relevant knowledge and expertise for those who place their stake in Russia and emerging markets.
Institutes and Research Centres
The School has a number of institutes and research centres which are the country’s leading centres for functional and industry expertise. They conduct applied research, implement consulting projects, develop new educational programmes, and contribute to the formation of the intellectual agenda of Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO.
Faculty and experts
More than 150 professors from the world’s leading business schools teach at Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO. The expert network of the School unites more than 1,300 professionals who act as guest speakers in educational programmes and work as experts in research projects. Our priority task, however, is to develop the School’s own faculty that will be able to work effectively at the intersection of academic experience and relevant business practices.
The School’s research work is aimed at solving urgent business problems faced by entrepreneurs and managers in Russia and around the globe. We conduct detailed studies of Russian businesses and prepare training materials and business cases, which make educational programmes as close to real-life practice as possible.
We build partnerships with international business schools, universities, associations and communities, because we realise perfectly well that it is only possible to create an excellent business school by collaborating with the best schools in the field. We develop joint educational programmes and implement research projects, thus contributing to better understanding between Russia and other countries of the world.
In order to provide a diverse learning experience to students and support their 24/7 access to learning materials, peer-to-peer and group discussions, SKOLKOVO has launched a number of TEL initiatives based on digital solutions. TEL is actively used for internationalization of our product portfolio, as well as gamification and customized learning outcomes.
Customised business simulations, designed and developed by the SKOLKOVO team, have become a powerful learning tool for executive education programmes. In recent years SKOLKOVO has developed 5 comprehensive management simulations reflecting emerging market challenges and the specific needs of Russian business. The SKOLKOVO business simulations are widely used in educational programmes with more than 2,000 participants per annum and by other universities and external organisations abroad. Simulation and gaming remains the core competence of the School as it provides superior and accessible management education for a wide audience.
The School actively uses a unified Moodle Learning Management System (LMS) for all SKOLKOVO programmes. This helps to deliver all learning materials to students and automate a wide variety of assignments/test/quizzes. The LMS is used to get student’s feedback on the learning process and as a lifetime archive of all materials from a student’s education at the School.
Online education is another priority for the School. SKOLKOVO professors have produced several online courses for a blended learning approach to the School curriculum. A SKOLKOVO MOOC platform (https://online.skolkovo.ru) contains 3 open online courses and special orientation online module for Degree students only.
