St. Petersburg’s B-School Celebrates 10th Anniversary

The Haas School’s partner school at St. Petersburg University, Russia, celebrated its 10th anniversary this January. The festivities drew not only the international press but also high-level government and industry officials, who have experienced this school’s significant contributions to the Russian economy.

The first Western-style business school in Russia, the School of Management (SOM) has benefited from a partnership with UC Berkeley since its inception in 1993 and is modeled after the Haas School.

SOM has grown to 1300 students and 60 faculty members during a time when the Russian educational and economic systems were undergoing dramatic changes. Russians have come to welcome not only the concept of a business school, but also that of students having to pay for their education.

“The best reward for all of our hard work with our Russian partners during these past ten years is to see the business sophistication of our SOM graduates,” said Susanne Campbell, program director of the partnership, who spoke at the festivities.
