KSE initiatives are platforms where our students, alumni and faculty deal with deep economic issues and exchange expertise with real-world practitioners. Initiatives comprise spheres like procurement, journalism, media and public events. Their results are also diverse: from professional trainings to public informing and support of Ukrainian reform processes. Although, initiatives are not purely launched by Kyiv School of Economics, they share the school’s mark of excellence and KSE members are heavily involved in their running. We are confident that they can make a crucial impact for Ukraine.
