Manage! Cup Semifinals: Participants Share

Just imagine that you get to manage a company, and all of its management has just been dismissed?

These are the kinds of tasks that the participants of the Manage! cup, a countrywide management tournament for students, have to solve. The cup’s semifinals have just taken place in St. Petersburg; the 30 best teams were chosen to participate in the finals in Moscow on March 11-12.

ITMO is LOVE

ITMO is LOVE

When we first introduced it as one of our core values, many were shocked. But the truth is for most of us ITMO University is more than a job – it’s a deep commitment, it’s fun, it’s family. It’s the knowledge that what we do together is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s late nights and early flights. It’s thinking big and investing even bigger. It’s completely changing education and science in  Russia,  and  putting  a heart on it.
