The Kyiv School of Economics (KSE) is the first Ukrainian university partnering with Coursera for Campus. KSE students and faculty will have free access to more than 5,000 courses in various specialties from the world’s top universities and companies for its students and faculty.
“We are honoured to partner with Kyiv School of Economics to integrate Coursera for Campus into its English degree programs and give Ukrainian students the opportunity to gain essential job-relevant skills,” said Anthony Tattersall, Coursera Vice President EMEA. “Today marks the beginning of our long-term commitment to help KSE build the next generation of talent and unlock the full potential of the Ukrainian economy.”
According to Yegor Stadny, Vice President of Bachelor Programs at the Kyiv School of Economics, access to the Coursera for Campus will strengthen the curricula and educational trajectories of the University of Kyiv School of Economics.
“We always carefully select content for our training programs, teaching methods and technologies. Either offline or online is not the question for us. The secret of success is in a combination formula. Offline is a great value for us. But we need online training when it has the best quality and meets our needs,” he stressed. “Unlimited access to courses and entire specializations from the world’s top universities on Coursera will qualitatively enrich our programs. Our students will be able to choose such courses at Coursera as their elective courses for free and receive the relevant certificates, which are now highly valued by employers.”
The Kyiv School of Economics will offer access to Coursera courses to students studying bachelor’s and master’s programs, but also to students of short-term programs. Learners will have access to courses in high-demand fields, including What is Data Science from IBM, AI for Everyone from DeepLearning.AI, and Creative Thinking: Techniques and Tools for Success from Imperial College London. Our learners will benefit from a world-class online, mobile, and hands-on learning experience, while earning job-relevant credentials for courses they complete.
Teachers and students of the Kyiv School of Economics will have partial access to Coursera courses in March next year. These courses will be integrated into the majority of KSE curricula from September, the beginning of the next school year.
Coursera was launched in 2012 by two Stanford Computer Science professors, Andrew Ng and Daphne Koller, with a mission to provide universal access to world-class learning. It is now one of the largest online learning platforms in the world, with 92 million registered learners as of September 30, 2021. Coursera partners with over 250 leading university and industry partners to offer a broad catalog of content and credentials, including courses, Specializations, Professional Certificates, Guided Projects, and bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Institutions around the world use Coursera to upskill and reskill their employees, citizens, and students in fields such as data science, technology, and business. Coursera became a B Corp in February 2021.
