Abstract

In spite of its impressive progress over the past two decades, Russia is still faced with serious challenges including a declining workforce, rampant corruption, and underinvestment in infrastructure. To these challenges we would add the dearth of managerial and executive talent needed to support the country’s ambitions in the global economy. This, along with the country’s other challenges, requires a management education infrastructure that produces such managers, and incorporates an international and cross-cultural perspective in the process. This chapter addresses the ways in which cross-cultural learning for managers in Russia has been enabled and constrained by a constantly evolving institutional environment and internal cultural circumstances.
