Ten years ago, HSE University established a Joint Department with McKinsey&Company, a global consulting company. McKinsey partners teach three courses in the programme, and they intend to expand their collaboration with the university. Vitaly Klintsov, McKinsey Managing Partner for Russia and CIS countries, spoke with HSE News Service about why he likes teaching and what qualities make a modern leader.
Evgenia Kondrashina graduated with honours from the International College of Economics and Finance (ICEF) bachelor’s programme in 2005 before going on to receive her master’s from the London School of Economics. An excellent student, Evgenia for a long time thought that the next logical step would be a prestigious career at a top English consulting firm, but the idea of following in others’ footsteps doesn’t make everyone happy. Evgenia deviated from this trajectory and found herself in one of the world’s leading orchestras – the London Symphony Orchestra – where she continues to work today.
