On April 19, 2017, a new group of Executive MBA began to study at the Graduate School of Management of St. Petersburg State University.



The Executive MBA program is implemented in a modular format – once a month for 4 days from Wednesday to Saturday. The program began with the course "Economics for Managers", which is conducted by Associate Professor of St. Petersburg State University Vassily K. Dermanov: «On the course, we will talk about the processes that occur in the economy, affecting the stability (volatility) of economic processes, and about how to "measure" the economy. The goal of the course is to introduce the students to the methods of economic analysis, which are necessary both for understanding economic processes and for making decisions. This course examines the economic processes and principles that underpin the management of organizations».
