Vision

The institute is a vision of impact investor and venture philanthropist Ruben Vardanyan, a strong believer in the future role of the emerging markets in the global economy.

The world has never been as dynamic as it is today: technological disruptions, demographic shifts, economic turbulence, and political unrest bring challenges on an unprecedented scale. Twenty years ago nobody could have imagined that the combined GDP of the top seven emerging markets could exceed that of the G7 countries. These markets offer both a great opportunity and a major challenge for any business. By establishing IEMS we wanted to contribute our views and insights to the dialog of business with policy-makers and NGOs in all emerging markets. We believe that open multi-stakeholder dialog will eventually help businesses and politicians come up with better-informed decisions that make a positive impact and drive change for better.

Since its inception, IEMS has been supported by EY. Under the strategic guidance of Karl Johansson, IEMS has developed into an international network uniting the research teams in Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Indian School of Business in Hyderabad.

Studying emerging markets from within – that is the idea behind bringing together the research teams in Moscow, Hong Kong, and Hyderabad into the international and interdisciplinary research network. These are the most effective means to deal with the dynamics and complexity of the changing nature of emerging markets. Assisting international businesses better understand emerging markets and operating businesses in emerging markets expand globally – those are the strategic aims of the research initiatives at IEMS.

Pursuing its mission, in more than 10 years SKOLKOVO IEMS has produced over 80 sponsored and commissioned research reports, published an award-winning book, and contributed to expert discussion at major economic forums in emerging markets and globally. IEMS has benefited from the support of and partnerships with various institutions and organizations, such as Unilever, RVVZ Foundation, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Dialog of Civilizations Research Institute, BRICS Business Magazine, and others.
