Graduate School of Management, St. Petersburg University, Russia
Development and dissemination of case studies on Russian firms and international companies based in Russia is a top priority of the GSOM at St. Petersburg University. Each case study is a carefully prepared educational material containing a methodically structured description of a situation drawn from real business practice. Most of the cases developed at the GSOM—both full-length and mini-cases—are based on field research and primary sources. Currently the GSOM is the largest center of case studies on business practices in Russia, and GSOM cases are used in instruction at universities in Europe, the United States, Asia, and Africa.
