Bachelor of Management programme provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to identify and solve problems in business and management. After graduation, students of the programme should be ready to begin a successful career in Russian and international companies, or to continue their education further on to the Master level in Russia or abroad.

The programme has 4 year duration and 240 credits. Its curriculum is essentially international and provides theoretical and practical knowledge in business and management supplemented with understanding of contemporary issues in macro and micro-economic, environmental, ethical, legal, political, sociological and technological aspects of a company’s external environment. The core part of the programme includes the disciplines that deal with the launch of organisations and their effective and responsible management. The electives are designed to deepen the knowledge in the major fields of business administration and provide specialisation in particular functional management areas.

The Practice of Business course designed especially for the Bachelor programme is an integral part of the curriculum. Throughout the course undergraduates work in a real business environment under the guidance of professional managers and consultants. The study of foreign languages makes a significant contribution to the development of intercultural communication abilities.
