Yevgeny Krivolapov (Russian, intake Sepetmber 2005), Procurement Director Smith Eurasia, tells why he chose the EURO-MBA programme.

"I started my career in the position of administrative assistant with Amoco Eurasia, in a small town, situated in Western Siberia in 1994. American major oil & gas production Company had this project in Western Siberia. I was lucky to be able to participate in Amoco’s activities and learnt new ways of thinking and doing business.

At that time I did not realize completely what I was pursuing in my career, even when I was promoted to branch office manager and area representative in 1998. In 2000, I moved from Siberia to Moscow to become Procurement Director for Smith Eurasia, being knowledgeable in the Western Siberian market.

Only then I realized the importance of my job changes for the career building process. With this new post I got the opportunity to become a “national employee” and develop myself further as a person and businessman. Why did I chose the Euro*MBA? Many big and well-known businesses in Russia realize that in order to survive and be successful they should globalize their activities. Now it is the right moment for me do the next move in my career and become a “global employee”.

In order to achieve this, I had the strong desire to evaluate my professional knowledge and skills and continue my education at a western University. For my current work I need to have a clear understanding of Consultant’s job as well as knowledge of the best business practices.

The Euro*MBA program was known to be the single appropriate program in Europe to provide me with this knowledge and skills, and my colleagues recommended it to me. Furthermore, the energy sector demands innovation in companies. Therefore, our training process should be very innovative as well, as is the Euro*MBA."
