The Russian team became 4th in the final stage of the International Final of the 2019/2020 Global Management Challenge.

The International Final of the Strategy and Management Competition was held online from July 19 to July 27. The participants of the competition were teams from 16 countries: the Czech Republic, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Kenya, India and Macau.

"For the 14th time, Russian teams are participating in the International Final of the Global Management Challenge, which included graduates of the flagship programs of the Presidential Academy. Participation in the International competition after studying at the Academy and participating in the "Leaders of Russia" competition is a new challenge that opens up a wide horizon for our colleagues to test their competencies and identify new development areas at the world level," Vladimir Mau, Rector of RANEPA, said.

In the finals, Russia was represented by “Stalkers” team, consisting of the winners and finalists of the “Leaders of Russia 2020” management competition and graduates of the RANEPA Master of Public Administration for Managers program. The team included Sergey Roskoshny (PJSC Sibur), Evgeny Petrenko (Rosatom State Corporation), Sergey Podgorny (Dubna University), Alexander Kuznetsov (Vitbiomed+) and Nadezhda Efremova (ANO National Priorities).

"The Agency for Strategic Initiatives has been supporting the Global Management Challenge as one of the best practices for developing business competencies and entrepreneurial thinking for almost 10 years, in fact, from the very beginning. We are glad that, from one year to another, the project not only proves its effectiveness in the development of competencies for doing business in Russia, but also allows us to select management teams that show great results at the international level," Yulia Hanzhina, Deputy Head of Young Professionals Direction, ASI, mentioned.

Working under simulated conditions, the participants of the international online final managed the company against direct competition with each other.

"Despite the very limited time for preparation and the "distributed" online format of its implementation being practiced for the first time, the team managed to show very good results: to demonstrate a stable profit for its virtual company and increase the investment attractiveness index by almost 18%," Vyacheslav Shoptenko, Director of the Institute for Organizational Development and Strategic Initiatives of RANEPA, Leader of the Global Management Challenge Strategy and Business Management Championship in Russia, said.

The national and international finals of the 2020/2021 Global Management Challenge will be held in September 2021 in Nizhny Novgorod.
