Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO Launches New Technology to Streamline International Faculty Hiring
Russian private business school partners with Interfolio to reduce administrative burden and improve the hiring experience for administrators, faculty, and applicants
WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 4, 2019 – The Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO, an award-winning private business school with respected faculty from across the world, today announced the adoption of Interfolio’s Faculty Search module to support a strategic initiative to recruit the best international faculty.
“Our school is actively adding new faculty from across the globe,” said Denis Konanchuk, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. “Partnering with Interfolio will provide a consistent approach to hiring faculty, which will then influence the development of new processes for the entire school. It will also significantly increase the amount of time we can spend on new initiatives, rather than on administrative work.”
Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO’s previous hiring process lacked a standardized process, placing a significant administrative burden on under-resourced staff. Interfolio Faculty Search — built specifically for the nuances of faculty hiring and the shared governance model of higher education — will improve the hiring experience for administrators and faculty, as well as applicants.
Using Faculty Search, Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO will have one digital system to post, collect, and organize applications and confidential materials and communicate with hiring committee members.
“We are pleased to add Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO to our existing partnerships with international business schools, including the London School of Business, Frankfurt School of Finance and Management, and IESE Business School,” said Andrew Rosen, CEO of Interfolio. “The use of Interfolio across disciplines and across the globe speaks to the versatility and configurability of our products, which are focused on improving not only the faculty experience but also the administrative experience—especially when reporting to accreditation organizations like the AACSB.”
