The Presidential Academy’s program was presented for the AACSB competition, Innovations that inspire. An AACSB competent commission evaluated the description of the innovative educational project, an experience that could become a benchmark for the work of other business schools around the world. The manager retraining programs run jointly by business schools and major companies were of special interest in the context of the competition. They were expected to propose practical solutions to increase efficiency, to use modern interactive tools and to expand the innovative component at companies.
The Strategic Breakthrough Triangle program is one of the most innovative in Russia. It was also the first attempt to organize a Learning by doing or shadow training for senior executives of a Russian high-tech company to work with innovative start-ups. The program generates a synergy effect from the combination of three important components in the training of modern leaders. The first component is the interactive training and learning format. Second, the program focuses on a team project, which helps practice team interaction between people from different branches of a company working on a single strategic project. Third, the students are trained to work as intrapreneurs and technological scouts – to professionally select innovation projects the company might need from technopolises and business accelerators. Experienced private investors and representatives of venture and corporate funds are involved in the program as mentors, showing how to evaluate the prospects of various technological start-ups.
Following the competition, the Strategic Breakthrough Triangle program was presented as an example of an innovative approach to solving practical problems in the framework of joint programs of business schools and major corporations.
