Programme coordinators help the student in accurately gauging the preparation level and curriculum to select the course, start and successfully complete it.

How is the internship being held ?
Since the second year, students take part in 2-month summer training in leading companies, including KSE partners. Not only students get personal contacts, but they also get acquainted with particular business processes of different companies. It allows them to apply their knowledge, and also provides quick adaptation and employment after graduation. We assist in choosing the most appropriate place for an internship. At the end of the study students work on their projects (diploma work) which can become a start-up.
Why can the student be expelled?
We don’t expel because of unsatisfactory grades (only if there are a lot of such grades). If the students get unsatisfactory grades, they can attend the discipline once more and pass required exams. However, we expel for cheating after 2 cases. The first one is a warning. We are convinced that knowledge should be gained fairly and properly, as this helps students to nurture self-organization and responsibility for their own decisions and competence.
How is the study process being held?
At the Kyiv school of economics, students gain knowledge offline. We understand the value of live communication and make everything so that the study process takes place on campus. At the moment for comfortable and safe studying, the programs are adapted to the mixed format (online + offline).
All lectures and practical exercises are recorded in Zoom and then uploaded to our educational platform Moodle. Students have access to these recordings to review the material or if they missed the class.
