Advisory Board

The Advisory Board for the Faculty of Management, St. Petersburg State University was established in 1993 as a pioneer experience of such Boards for Russian business schools. John E. Pepper, Procter&Gamble president and CEO had been its first chairman for ten years. Starting from 2007 the GSOM Advisory Board is chaired by Sergey B. Ivanov, Chief of Staff of the Presidential Executive Office.

Goals and regulations of the Board activities are established in the “Advisory Board for the Graduate School of Management, SPbSU Statement” approved by the SPbSU Rector. The Advisory Board holds its sessions twice a year as a rule. Two permanent committees act in intersessional periods: Committee for GSOM Academic development (chaired by Olga К.Dergunova) and Audit and Finance committee (chaired by Sergey V.Bazhanov).
