Russia’s Lomonosov Moscow State University and the Robinson College of Business in Atlanta have announced an innovative executive leadership partnership.

The Executive Leaders programme will teach international leadership and management practices. As part of the programme, participants will earn an Executive MBA from Robinson and an MSc in Management from Moscow State. It will be the first EMBA to be offered by a US school on site in Russia.

The dual degree will be complemented by a Moscow Executive Leaders forum, featuring international business and government speakers and roundtable working groups of business leaders to focus on topical subjects. The dual degree part of the programme will be taught in English for three days each month by faculty from both Robinson and Moscow State.

“This partnership between two premier institutions will transform business education in Russia,” says Vasili Kolesov, dean at the faculty of economics at Moscow State.

“It will help managers of Russian and Russia-based companies acquire professional knowledge of international business. In addition, Russia overall will benefit from this as these managers will guarantee Russia’s leadership in international markets.”
