The programme gives a strong foundation in general management. which enables students to build upon previous academic studies that might not have included a managerial or economic component. Visiting faculty, an innovative curriculum and international network of Lomonosov MSU BS enable MIB students to further their careers in a truly international environment.

The first year curriculum is very intensive, and includes core foundation courses and intensive English language training. The courses serve as a basis for further academic and professional progress. First year ends with a set of courses on international aspects of business and management, taught in English by visiting faculty.

The second year curriculum gives stronger emphasis on professional courses, and offers a wide variety of electives. Second year students can either deepen their knowledge by working on research thesis, or to start professional experience by combining studies and work.

The MIB program requires significant practical work, both in classes and home assignments. Following Lomonosov MSU BSs teaching philosophy ACTION-REFLECTION-LEARNING, students work on cases based on current business issues and participate in small group activities.
