The European Foundation for Management Development, a global association of leading business schools and companies, has only 18 EFMD Fellows in the world—one for each main region in which the Foundation operates. All fellows are former or present deans of the leading business schools (such as IMD, Kellogg, CEIBS, ESADE, WU Vienna, HEC Montreal, to name a few). 

Each EFMD Fellow is appointed as an honorary and life-long member of EFMD and helps to promote and advocate in his/her country/region the value and benefits of management education and development and the international community that EFMD represents and supports. Professor Valery Katkalo, HSE First Vice Rector and Dean of HSE Graduate School of Business, has been appointed by the EFMD as its representative for Russia. This prestigious award was bestowed upon Professor Katkalo by the EFMD Board of Trustees in recognition of his ‘outstanding contribution to management education and longstanding dedication and support of the EFMD international network’. 

‘I believe that this status is an important asset for strengthening the brand of the HSE Graduate School of Business—an ambitious project implemented by our team of management education experts and the entire community of HSE University,’ says Valery Katkalo.
