School of Business and International Proficiency

In the mid-1990s, MGIMO became one of the first Russian universities that established their own business school. Since then, business education at the University has acquired a variety of forms, while the number of Programmes gradually has grown. At the end of 2012 the MGIMO Institute of Continuing Professional Education was transformed into the School of Business and International Proficiency. The idea of establishing the School of Business at MGIMO grew from an intention to completely upgrade the range of MBA Programmes, vocational training and re-training courses. MGIMO School of Business and International Proficiency seeks to embody all the strengths of the University in its educational Programmes so that its graduates would be high quality professionals and experts in the advanced areas of public activity. Our Programmes are aimed at improving the knowledge previously acquired by students. Our goal is to prepare talented leaders that will be able to use the acquired knowledge and skills in their professional activity. Aiming at improving education quality, MGIMO School of Business keeps track of all latest trends in different areas of public life. Seeking to abide by our principles, we invite lecturers that have extensive experience in different spheres.

Since the day of its creation in 2012 the MGIMO School of Business and International Proficiency made it its mission to shape a professional community of professionals and to offer education corresponding to international quality standards. The School accumulated all strong sides of MGIMO in its standards and educational Programmes and became an integral part of the education community within the University. All the while, the MGIMO School of Business was evolving, offering a constantly growing list of Programmes, striving to embrace various requirements of its participants’ professional development. However, the year 2015 brought a new territorial component into the School’s development. Along with opening the Odintsovo educational Complex the MGIMO School of Business and International Proficiency came to this location in the Moscow region with a special set of Programmes, set up to fully consider the territorial features and be interesting for potential participants. The wonderful infrastructure of the educational complex in Odintsovo with cutting-edge classrooms equipped with everything required to set up an up-to-date educational process paves the way to fulfilling the ambitious task of transferring high educational standards to new locations.
