Mikhail Kusnirovich: “Each morning teaches us something”

Last week Mikhail Kusnirovich, Founding partner of the SKOLKOVO business school and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Bosco di Ciliegi group of companies, met students of the SKOLKOVO MBA and EMBA programmes and eagerly answered all their questions.

At first it was important to be self-sufficient, then the guideline has changed to being in demand.

It is really significant to love people, it is beneficial. Endeavour for others, be responsible for your commitments.
