Russia?


chilianos

Hey!

I am interested in the Vlerick Leuven MBA in St. Petersburg because I would like to work in Russia afterwards.

Does anyone have info about that?

Is it difficult to stay and work in Russia afterwards? Is it worth?

Cheers.

Hi there, I am not a speicalist for Russia, but Vlerick sounds like a good option to enter that job market. The Belgium Vlerick school has a good reputation - even though its not one of the top notch MBAs in Europe - so I think the partnership with St.Petersburg school guarantees a certain quality of their MBA.

Or are there many other MBAs in Russia with a name? Did you find any Russian MBA in the relevant international rankings (FT, Economist etc)? I'd be curious!

BTW, do you speak Russian?

One other MBA program that is just now launching in the Russian market is through GHP. It is a distance-learning plus approach. The program is fully accredited through IWU university--a university ranked the past 2 years in U.S. News and World Reports university rankings. You can get more info here: http://ghprussia.ru/mba.html

As far as the issue of staying in Russia after a degree, the legislative issues continue to make this more of a challenge for expatriates. However, it is doable.

Good luck.

Can you tell me how to get a work permit in Russia? What are the conditions?

The work permit really needs to come through your employer. It requires a legally registered (usu. for-profit company) that has accreditation. This entity applies for a certain number of permits per year. They will then need to work with you and your documents to get the work permit issued which will then allow a visa to be obtained or for the person in Russia they will then need to leave the country and obtain a new visa.

The good news is that once you have the work permit, future visas can be obtained in-country (unless there are additional legislative changes).

Thanks for the input. In Europe it is similar - you need an employer to get hold of a visa (for non-Europeans)

Speaking of the best Russian business schools, I would recommend the St-Petersburg school of management (gsom.pu.ru).
I'm not sure about their MBA, whether they have an English-speaking one, but their international MSc programs are for sure the best ones in Russia.
And the school is old, accredited and has many cooperations with descent international schools.

Why do you want to stay in Russia, full of racist thugs running around shooting people. The whole government is corrupt.

There is no need for an MBA to succeed in Russsia. The only reuqirement is to bribe the right person.

Have you ever stayed in Russia that you say such things?

Sorry but it sounds really silly.

Big Russian cities where expats work are modern and safe. And expats usually work at western companies where you can't bribe anyone to get a job.

in fact, i know russia very well. In big cities, you still find skin heads going after coloured people, shooting and stealing whatever they can.

I am saying this in compare to other European countries. And the prospect of living in Russia really terrifies me.

Businessmen there quite often hire bodyguards for their own safety.

And remember this kid, corruption is everywhere, but you must know the right person. For a young college graduate looking for an entry level job, yes the world is beautiful and hiring is based on merits and nothing else.

BTW, i dont need to live in Russia even one day to pass my judgement. Why need I?

Just don't do any human rights work, especially in Chechnya, and you should be fine. :)

Wait, so you say you know Russia well, but have never been there?
