Course Syllabus


If we think of businesses and organizations as stars in the sky, the brightest among them, from which constellations are formed, are clusters. The word "cluster" has many meanings and is used as a term in various sciences, such as astronomy or mathematics. In economic terms, a cluster is a geographic concentration of firms, universities, and other organizations that interact with each other - cooperate and compete - in related industries. The classic example of a creative industries cluster is Hollywood. According to the Harvard Business School and the European Cluster Observatory, economies that develop clusters are more sustainable due to the high employment, productivity, and innovation activity of their participants. The recognized effectiveness of the cluster approach makes the task of training specialists capable of creating the conditions for the formation and productive operation of clusters relevant. Since the 2000s, the world cluster manager is a full-fledged profession that requires training and the formation of special knowledge, skills, and abilities. Today in Russia there are more than 115 cluster organizations, and in European countries - over 1000. In the course "Cluster Management" students: - learn about the cluster approach to economic development and the latest scientific and practical trends in this area; - get acquainted with professional standards and best practices of cluster management; - get skills in cluster organization design, strategic development of cluster initiative, and cluster project development. Specialists familiar with the basics of cluster management will be in demand in cluster organizations and cluster development centers, as well as government and local authorities involved in economic and innovation policy. The author and teacher of the course has been doing research and consulting work on cluster development in the team of the "Russian Cluster Observatory" center of ISIEZ NRU HSE since 2015.
