This year, we are launching several internal projects that add value to the client experience of students, clients, and strategic partners. This will increase the number of adults and students to whom we can offer educational products. Over the next 2 years, we intend to create a KSE Campus, prepare for our Bachelor’s Degree, build academic and analytical capacity, and scale Ukraine-Learns online and blended learning platform. ”

“How to raise the productivity of your business? How to find “pain points”? How to increase productivity when employee motivation is low? How to find the right balance between extensive and intense growth? How we can apply the latest technologies within the current constraints? We will find answers to these and dozens of other difficult questions along with future CEOs in our updated 2020 MBA program. ”


Olesia Verchenko, Vice President of Economic Education, Rector:

“This year, another strong professor – Solomiya Shpak, a graduate of KSE, PhD at George Mason University (Virginia, USA) – is joining our faculty.

Namely, we will update the soft skills workshop programs for further employment of our students of our students from all three Master’s degree programs”


Olga Fariatieva became Vice President of Public Policy and Governance: “Since the inception of KSE Public Policy, we have been supporting the trend of lifelong learning among all adults working to solve social problems in Ukraine. We want all public servants, public figures to have more opportunities for qualitative and applied learning that can be combined with work. That is why this year we plan to expand the list of medium-term authorial programs from our teachers. The second goal we focus on is to improve the experience our students receive while studying at KSE. We will dedicate more time to processes tweaking and better understanding their needs and wants. I dream of a community which will change Ukraine for the better”


Taras Doronyuk headed economic and political research at KSE: “In 2020 our team of top ukrainian analysts expands expertise in the areas of corporate governance, market design and the labor market. For example, we are now generating solutions to make access to the rail freight market transparent to all market players. The team also continues analytical support for public procurement reforms. In the active phase, we analyze the Canadian-Ukrainian bilateral trade data. Another interesting area for us is the analysis of internal and external investments, in particular which companies are attracted to them, how it affects labor productivity and so on. We have also recently launched a health care business separate from government consulting. We are now deepening our expertise in developing medical technology assessment reports, which is relevant for pharmaceutical companies. ”
