    15 May 2020

    The University 2035's project "Data-Driven Management -- Chief Data Officer in Government entities" has been recognized by the international jury with the Excellence in Practice Award, presented annually by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).

    EFMD published the results of its review of participants' applications today on its website. The CDO project was among the finalists in the Executive Development category.

    The EFMD Excellence in Practice (EiP) Awards recognise outstanding and impactful client-supplier partnerships in the domains of Leadership, Professional, Talent and Organisational Development. The Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation is a partner and commissioner of the Data-Driven Management Project. The Ministry implements the national project "Digital Economy" and the program "Personnel for Digital Economy" in cooperation with other federal authorities.

    5020 retrained students, nearly 400 data-based socially oriented projects and a vast partner network are the ultimate results that University 2035 and the Ministry of economic development envisioned at the start of the program. But the main goal that we are proud to declare accomplished is fostering a new culture of decision making: precise, coherent and sustainable, epitomizing a modern approach to addressing the ever-changing needs of Russian society.

    The jury of this year's Excellence in Practice Award consisted of more than 30 members - directors, program supervisors and managers from educational organizations in 18 countries in Europe, Asia and North America.

    The European Foundation for Management Development was founded in 1972. This non-profit organization, headquartered in Brussels, is the largest European association for management development. It consists of about 900 educational organizations, consulting firms, commercial companies and government agencies from more than 80 countries.
