Moscow School of Management Skolkovo

Moscow School of Management @Skolkovo is ranked 9th globally in terms of the average alumni salary in the Financial Times Executive MBA Ranking.

The average salary of School graduates after three years is almost $400,000 per annum, an average increase of 50%

Overall, the School debuted 58th in the Financial Times Executive MBA Ranking, becoming the highest debutant.

The ranking takes into account Career Progress, School Diversity, Research/CSR, etc.

The weight of each criteria is determined by the FT’s experts. Also, EMBA programmes must meet certain criteria to be eligible (for more details follow the link to methodology and key).

SKOLKOVO Executive MBA is an international educational programme for top managers and business owners with at least 8 years of managerial experience. 

The programme was created to impart structured knowledge for effective strategic business management. All the lecturers are not only academicians, but also practitioners with extensive consulting experience in various companies. Professors develop training programmes specifically for the SKOLKOVO EMBA.

SKOLKOVO EMBA students are drawn from the top management of major businesses and leading entrepreneurs from Eastern Europe and Central Asia, all of them have an average of 9 years of management experience. A typical group consists of up to 50 students from different industries, of whom half are major business owners and the other half are senior executives.

The number of SKOLKOVO Executive Education students during the pandemic increased by 20% in the 2020-21 academic year, with a total of almost 900 graduates from the programme over 15 years.

Recently, the school’s rector Yuri Levin presented the new ten-year strategy for SKOLKOVO's development. One of the new strategy’s criteria is that alumni salary growth should reach 80%. According to SKOLKOVO projections, over the next 10 years, the geographical reach of its educational programmes will extend far beyond Moscow and even Russia, and new professors would make up 30% of all the school’s teaching staff by the year 2025, and 50% - by the year 2031. 

Financial goals outlined in the Strategy presuppose 3.5 times growth in earnings to reach $200 million by 2024. 

“The results of Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO, which participated for the first time with the EMBA programme in the Financial Times ranking, showed that we are on the right track. The School is actively growing and developing, expanding international partnerships and building a comprehensive digital educational platform with personalized lifelong learning tracks for each member of our community" — said Yuri Levin, Dean of Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO.

The school was established in 2006 by the Russian business community, and their partnership made it possible to implement an ambitious idea that evolved from a sketch on paper to the largest private business school in the CIS.

The support and attention of the founders help the SKOLKOVO community to grow and progress every day. In general, SKOLKOVO has more than 3,300 graduates of its degree programs — MBA, EMBA, and HKUST-SKOLKOVO EMBA for Eurasia — and entrepreneurial programs: Practicum, Global SHIFT, and Startup Academy.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
