The School team will continue to work on new programmes and current educational formats, plan new events for all members of the community."

“Experiments with new educational formats, including online, have been relevant for leading business schools and universities around the world in recent years. In my opinion, the current situation in the world will serve as an additional motivation to develop educational innovations, focus on new approaches to the formation of programmes and working with a dispart audience. The forced and temporary suspension of full-time work at the SKOLKOVO Business School opens up the possibility for us to launch several multi-modal and distance learning pilots.”
