Why an MBA?

The degree of Master of Business Administration is recognized throughout the world as providing the broad base of knowledge needed for a career in general management or any area of specialization.

An MBA from AIBEc is the best international business education you can get without leaving Moscow. The AIBEc MBA is designed to meet international standards for quality and content while serving the special needs of Russian students. AIBEc students study under professors with internationally recognized academic qualifications and international teaching and management experience.

Structure of the Program

The AIBEc MBA requires completion of at least 15 courses (11 required and 4 elective) with a grade of C or better in each course. Each course consists of approximately 30–40 academic hours of classroom instruction. Courses typically meet once a week for three hours during the 10–12-week fall and spring semesters, or twice a week for 5–6 weeks during the summer semester.

Regular attendance is required. In planning their schedules, students should allow at least 6 hours per week for homework, reading, and study in each course, in addition to time spent in lectures and seminars. Normally the maximum course load is 3 courses during fall and spring semesters and 2 courses during the summer semester. Students who take the maximum course load every semester can complete the MBA in two years. However, many students with full-time jobs prefer to spread their MBA studies over a three-year period.
