Sarkhan Mikhailov is one of 50 students who enrolled in the Master of Business Administration.
(MBA) program of Baku Higher Oil School this year. He was born in 1974 and, therefore, is older than all of his coursemates.
He decided to begin studying again after 24 years because he wanted to keep pace with the rapidly developing scientific and technological progress and the world's constantly changing
realities. Sarkhan Mikhailov believes that a modern person, regardless of his age, must continuously work on himself, improve his skills and, if necessary, acquire new knowledge.
Sarkhan Mikhailov, who graduated with honors from the Faculty of Applied Mathematics and
Cybernetics of Baku State University in 1996, currently works as a director - responsible actuary of the Actuarial Department of Azre Reinsurance OJSC, which is the only reinsurance company in Azerbaijan. He completed the Actuarial Courses, consisting of six stages, which were held in 2011-2015 with the support of the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Association of Actuaries of Azerbaijan.
During 15 years of his professional activity, Sarkhan Mikhailov worked in various business areas, including IT and programming, metallurgy, and
printing. Since 2011, he has been working in the insurance industry.
"I wish to work in the management bodies of companies operating in the field of business until the end of my career to benefit them, and, of course, I want to continue improving my knowledge. Therefore, even though I have plenty of work experience, I decided to study again because I do not have sufficient business administration knowledge. No matter what experience and skills a management employee have, it will be challenging for him to achieve effective results and goals without having theoretical knowledge. I chose BHOS because the subjects included in the MBA program are taught at a high level. It will contribute to the growth of my theoretical knowledge and the systematization of my practical knowledge. I opted for Baku Higher Oil School because it is one of the top three universities that meet the international standard requirements. Since my goal is to get a better education, I decided to study at Baku Higher Oil School."
