History of GSCM

The School's concept was based on the traditions of the leading national universities and the global best practices in business education.

Universities that inspired and influenced GSCM:

National universities:

  • The Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration
  • Lomonosov Moscow State University
  • Central Economics and Mathematics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences

International universities:

  • AFW Wirtschaftsakademie (Bad Harzburg, Germany)
  • IESE Business School of the University of Navarra (Barcelona, Spain)
  • School of Business of York University (Toronto, Canada)

GSCM RANEPA, as a business school, was started in the form of the Euromanagement International Training and Consulting Center, a standalone department of RANEPA. This coincided with the formation of the new Russia and the emergency of market economy. The School has developed and successfully launched its pioneer professional retraining programs and a Euromanagement-MBA program for executives. These programs were solving the vital task of training executives of the former state-owned companies after privatization, as well as entrepreneurs who were starting their businesses in the new market rules. Rapid evolution and great success of the programs allowed the Academy to rename the Center as the Graduate School of Corporate Management.

The lack of necessary business literature in Russia prompted us to publish a series of translated and self-written textbooks «The ABC of Business» with a circulation of over 200,000 thousand copies. We developed innovative learning materials, which were later on turned into a set of 16 «Euromanagement for Russia» textbooks. Even though international cooperation in the field of education was still an exotic thing back then, we regularly organized international seminars for our students in Canada, USA, Australia, France, and invited lecturers from the world’s leading universities.

GSCM RANEPA originated from corporate programs for executives and employees. That is why we are strongly tied to the business community and have a large number of teaching practitioners.
GSCM RANEPA has always positioned itself as a business school for a broad spectrum of entrepreneurs and executives from all regions of Russia and EAEU member states, rather than a narrow circle of the elite. Many regions lacked qualified executives to run state-owned and private companies. Such strategy helped the School find its niche in the business education market.

Today, GSCM RANEPA is one of Russia’s leading business schools

The School offers a full range of advanced business education programs – from Bachelor’s to DBA.

Our alumni, who are over 15,000 people by now, work in almost all industries and regions of Russia, EAEU member states, as well as other countries, such as USA, Canada, China, Germany, Austria, Greece, Italy, Spain, Israel, Czech Republic.

Aspire not just to achieve outstanding success in business, but also make your whole life meaningful.

Euromanagement Program

In 1996, GSCM RANEPA partnered with AFW Wirtschaftsakademie (Bad Harzburg, Germany). Our 25 years of fruitful collaboration resulted in 16 Russian-German courses in soft management and marketing available both in the face-to-face and distance-learning format. We translated the unique learning materials and brought them in sync with Russian business realities. The Euromanagement model based on delegation of authority, collegial collaboration and a combination of freedom and managerial order still lies at the core of GSCM RANEPA’s philosophy. Studies of this management model are integrated into all programs offered by the School – from Bachelor’s to DBA. The Euromanagement module is a visiting card and a hallmark of GSCM RANEPA. All MBA students who successfully complete the Euromanagement program obtain the Harzburg Diploma of AFW Academy. EMBA students have a mandatory international module in Germany and obtain the German diploma "Euromanager".

In total, over 1,000 students of GSCM RANEPA’s business education programs completed an additional module in Germany and studied the best practices of German companies that are champions in their respective industries (Volkswagen, Bosch, Aldi, Jägermeister, etc.). The knowledge acquired by our students in the process of studies is immediately transformed into practice, thus allowing them to improve their personal performance and raise the effectiveness of employee management. Many executives, especially those who completed corporate training programs, managed to fully implement the European management model in their companies, which has led to a significant increase in labour productivity, the evolution of innovations and the high financial performance of the business.
