Mail.ru will support the creation of an infrastructure with user-friendly applications and services managed by a single cloud platform.
“One of the tasks of GSOM SPbU as part of the strategy implementation is to create a convenient and modern digital educational environment. Thanks to the experience of Mail.ru, we will be able to develop a training infrastructure that meets the challenges and needs of today's world, where IT is no longer a way to stand out, but a necessary development tool.

We trust in this matter the professionals in the Russian market, a company whose decisions we have no doubt about,” said Olga Dergunova, Deputy President and Chairman of the Management Board of VTB Bank, Director of GSOM SPbU.
