St. Petersburg University Graduate School of Management is one of the 22 faculties of St. Petersburg University, the oldest (est. 1724) Russian university and the most prominent national center of research and education.
GSOM SPbU was founded in 1993 in partnership with Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley (USA) and since then has shown a dynamic growth, from 33 to 1200 students. Today GSOM SPbU is the leading Russian university-based business school with strong international recognition proven by prestigious accreditations AMBA (Executive MBA) & EPAS (Bachelor Program) and membership in global alliances of top international business schools, companies, and organizations (PIM, CEMS, EFMD, GBSN, AACSB, EABIS, GRLI).
