Program Overview

Program Description:
Come to better know Russia by earning your master's degree during one of Russia's most exciting periods of change at the Russian Presidential Academy -- one of Russia's largest and most elite universities. Programs last either one or two years, depending on the student's preference. Courses include Russian politics, economics, history, and language, as well as practical courses on finance, organizational behavior, and other management topics. Past and current students are graduates of Harvard, Stanford, Georgetown, Pennsylvania, UC-Berkley, BYU, and other prestigious universities from around the world, who all share an interest in better understanding Russia.

The main subjects of study are economic, historical, social, and cultural drivers of change, reinforced by the development of the practical skills of change management. Criticism of the two extreme management views – voluntarism (if there is a good plan, everything will happen in accordance with it) and fatalism (nothing can be changed if it does not change by itself) – is the basis of this educational approach. Common sense, practical experience, and theory are brought together to help bright and ambitious people better understand and manage change. Past courses include “Change Management in Companies” by Sergei Choumak (Walt Disney Corporation), “Social and Economic Transformations in Russia” by Maxim Bratersky (Higher School of Economics), “Democracy and Growth” by Marc Berenson (Princeton University; University of Sussex), “Institutional Design: USA v. Russia” by Sam Potolicchio (Georgetown University), “Skolkovo: Designing an Innovation Ecosystem” by prominent lecturers: Marc Ventresca (Said Business School, Oxford University), Dana Brown (EMLYON Business School), Carol Leonard (Oxford University) and Irina Dezhina (Russian Academy of Sciences), “Transforming Georgia: why Georgia has succeeded?”, by Larisa Burakova (Higher School of Economics; Institute of economic analysis), “Global Strategic Analysis” by Timur Atnashev (RANEPA).

The main focus of this program is to develop strategic thinking that is responsive to change and to give our students practical skills for changing organizations of all sizes by understanding the nature of change in a global and historical perspective. In a complex and shift ing environment, this approach gives our students a sustainable competitive advantage over traditional management programs.
