“Mathematics is a science that shapes systematic thinking. I believe that without immersion in mathematics, you cannot and not only in management but many in a large number of professions that are considered humanities. GSOM is proud that it is a co-organizer of the scientific conference on game theory and management that attracts reputable international experts and world stars. This year, Nobel laureate Robert Aumann will speak to the conference.
He has enriched the scientific understanding of conflict and cooperation through mathematical analysis using game theory. His scientific interest is aimed at the challenges of long-term strategic cooperation. Today, the topic of partnership is relevant as never before and we are glad that our professors and students will be able to hear the newest information about the research in mathematical economics directly from the luminaries of science” - noted the Deputy President and Chairman of VTB Bank Management Board, GSOM SPbU Director Olga Dergunova.
