Our books are the key to your success!
Olympus Business made its name by introducing to the Russian reader in 1996 the world famous «Principles of Corporate Finance» by Richard Brealey and Stewart Myers. It immediately became a bestselling book on the Russian market.This initial success set the standard and direction for Olympus Business. Our aim is to publish the finest Russian and foreign works on finance, management, corporate management, securities trading, economics, marketing, human resources, oil industry, retail business and even sport. The intended readers are professionals of all ages.
In fifteen years of independent publishing, Olympus Business has created a powerful content library that contains the best ideas in the field of managing both large corporations and small businesses, as well as personal development for managers and professionals. On a personal level, our books help those who are striving to make progress and to improve their skills, and to find a healthy balance between work and life, without going against their own moral values. On the corporate level, we are promoting trend-setting knowledge and skills, advanced techniques and technologies, creativity and independent decision-making, combined with teamwork and quality service development in order to build successful businesses with strong brands.
At the social level, we are aiming to cover the leading approaches to public administration and contemporary leadership. We also focus on providing our readers with concepts of democratic development in Russia, social responsibility and environmental consciousness. Our human concern is to nurture tolerance and the ability to solve conflicts, in our readers.
We are aware that, in the past, Russian society was seriously poisoned by fear and authoritarianism and contemporary society imposes the challenges of mediocrity and consumerism. There is not much space for real change and for civil participation by young leaders. However, we will carry on working in our modest niche in order to promote the most advanced international ideas, knowledge and technologies.
Our portfolio contains classic business books, collected works on business, famous brands, business concepts and corporatehistories, top-level fundamental research, and the best text books on finance, management and consulting. We also publish memoirs, documentary fiction and non-fiction on history and economics.
