Technical support from MegaFon

MegaFon has supported GSOM SPbU in transferring the educational process to an online format. The technological solutions provided by the telecommunications company MegaFon will also enable the business school to provide a hotline for this online transition.

“The education sector was one of the first in our country that faced the need to urgently transfer its activities online. We understand the complexity of solving technological problems in such a short time. MegaFon considers it necessary to support the School so that students can continue to receive a high-quality education under the present conditions of compulsory quarantine,” said Natalya Taldykina, MegaFon's Corporate Business Development Director.

The provided communication solution based on the MegaFon Virtual PBX cloud service has allowed the business school to organize a single multi-channel telephone line with number 8800 for operational support of students and faculty. If necessary, with the help of this solution,  it will also be possible to ensure uninterrupted communication between employees, lecturers and students.

GSOM has successfully transferred the educational process into an online format in a very short period, providing all faculty and students access to the MS Teams platform. During the period since March 16, 2020, about 150 lessons have been conducted online.
