The Graduate School of Innovative Business was founded in accordance with the decision of MSU Academic Council in October 2006.

The main objective of the Graduate School of Innovative Business is to train graduate students who strive to embark on a career in fuel and energy complex. To enroll, an applicant is to be a holder of Bachelor’s, Specialist’s or Master’s degree.

Our graduates are highly-qualified specialists who combine profound theoretical and practical knowledge of geological and geophysical exploration of oil and gas deposits, of oil and gas processing and rational management of natural resources.

Our Master’s Degree programs devised by MSU specialists are to meet the modern challenges oil corporations have to face. Our students are taught by leading specialists from major research institutes, oil companies and services companies.

Our innovative curricula aim at the implementation of MSU experience in fundamental and applied research, its scientific and educational potential; thus we have introduced new interdisciplinary programs in cooperation with the Faculties of Geology, Chemistry, Law , Economics, Biology and the School of Public Administration.
