Two RANEPA business education programs ranked in FT Top-100 global MBA and EMBA programs this year
Two Russian business education programs have been included in the Financial Times МВА and Executive MBA Rankings 2016 in October, both implemented by the Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA): the joint MBA program between RANEPA Institute of Business Studies (IBS) and Grenoble Ecole de Management (number 67) and the joint EMBA program between IBS and Antwerp Management School (number 89).
“The joint MBA and EMBA programs implemented by RANEPA IBS together with the French and Belgian partners are complex and serious practice-oriented programs,” says RANEPA Vice-Rector, director of the IBS Professor Sergei Myasoyedov. “Both are taught by mixed teams of best Russian and European professors and practitioners, based on training materials and case studies reflecting European and Russian experience. Tuition is conducted in two languages, and joint training of Russian and foreign students is compulsory within international modules. After graduation, the program alumni become members of the alumni clubs of RANEPA IBS, the Grenoble or the Antwerp business schools.
In other words, the programs give graduates more than privileged diplomas. The graduates receive a unique knowledge and experience of doing business in Russia, in Europe and the world, a chance to build a network of personal connections and contacts with representatives of different countries' business. Naturally, they are in demand in the market and make a successful career in the best Russian and foreign companies. They regularly win top places in the ranking of 1000 Best Managers of Russia held by the Association of Russian Managers.
