Establishment of the School of Agribusiness was necessitated by a rapid development of agrarian business in Russia, foundation of new agro-holding corporations and a growing deficit of qualified middle and high management at this branch of economy. It has become clear with current management that basic knowledge obtained earlier at the universities was not sufficient to ensure continuous increase of business efficiency. That is why the MBA program with specialization in Agribusiness has become the main project of the School. It provides the solid and versatile knowledge ensuring a career development of a manager and the further development of a company.
MBA program in agribusiness is a unique one and combines the industry related specialization and the experience of the best Russian business schools. The project is carried out together with the St. Petersburg International Institute of Management (IMISP), the leader in Russian business education with a fifteen-year history of being on the education market and a ten-year experience of the MBA program.
