Teaching methods


We follow global trends in leadership training methods and new technologies in education. GSOM SPBU has the largest collection of its own business cases in Russia. In corporate training, we use distance learning technologies and create a virtual educational environment based on the Blackboard platform. Also, we have our own, adapted testing and evaluation methods. Our faculty have successful experience in coaching and individual approach to students.
