It is impossible to imagine a successful business today without highly qualified managers who are able to make decisions and organize the business processes given the large number of variables. Such professionals are trained in the master's programs of the Graduate School of Management, St. Petersburg University. 

The school offers 4 main programs: «Management», «Corporate Finance», «Urban Management and Development», «Business Analytics and Big Data». Each of the program not only trains specialists in the chosen field, but also develops leadership and managerial skills, teaches students to work in a team and develop projects together for the largest Russian and foreign companies. 

Applicants with different educational background and work experience come to get a master’s degree at GSOM SPbU. Among students, in addition to graduates with economic background, there are those who radically change their major. Students here are recent graduates of mathematical, humanities or technical faculties, as well as already working specialists who lack managerial and business skills.


GSOM SPbU is recognized as the best business school in Russia and is the first Russian business school represented in the Financial Times rankings.

Results-based education

The GSOM SPBU master's program, first of all, teaches to put the knowledge into practice. That is why the program involves a consulting project. Working with it, students learn not only to analyze specific problems, but also to develop a structured plan for solving them. Moreover, students learn to present and defend their ideas to teachers and business representatives who participate in the development of the curriculum, conduct trainings and take part in the commissions for master thesis defense.



Three master's programs are provided entirely in English: from lectures and group projects to writing and defending master thesis. More than 20 foreign lecturers work at GSOM SPbU, and each semester about 100 students come from foreign universities on exchange. Communicating in such an international environment and joint problem solving allows you to develop intercultural communication skills and learn to work and communicate in English.


Exchange semester, double- and joint-degree program

All GSOM SPBU Master Programs involve an exchange semester at one of GSOM international partner schools. 
Master in Management and Master in Business Analytics and Big Data students can pass additional selection for double degree programs. In addition students of the "Management" program can receive a second diploma from the International Alliance Cems.

At the end of the second semester of study, GSOM students take part in internships at one of more than 200 partner companies. Among them are the largest Russian and international corporations (L’Oreal, IBM, PepsiCo and others), as well as leading consulting companies (McKinsey, EY, A.T. Kearney) and banks (Sberbank, VTB, Citi, Raiffeisenbank). Employees of the Career Center help in searching for internships by collecting information about available vacancies and selecting options in accordance with the interests and areas of research of students.
