For me, networking is a source of new ideas, inspiration, and motivation. And the new program with the POLIMI business school is a unique opportunity to get cool networking with foreign students, learn about the peculiarities of doing business abroad and gain valuable learning experience at one of the best business schools in Europe. I expect that this will give a strong boost to the professional development of students.

FAQ

Who is your MBA program for?

The 20-month English-language program is designed for managers who plan to rebuild Ukraine in the post-war period. For those who want to work in the country, develop and create business. For those who see challenges as opportunities instead of obstacles.

What is the program length?

The program covers 20 months and consists of 7 educational modules including the Capstone Project. The estimated duration of each module is 2-3 months. Students have up to three courses within each module and can take two of them in parallel.

 

The program is complemented by career coaching of students and a business simulation course on the StratX platform, which allows students to make, analyze and evaluate business decisions in terms of their effectiveness in real time.

What is the Capstone Project?

Capstone Project is a practical work, a business plan prepared by a student during their studying and defended at the end of the MBA program. It is aimed at creating a new business or improving an existing one. CP applies the knowledge acquired during the entire learning.

Learning format and schedule?

The schedule is flexible and adapted to students’ working hours. Studying takes place in the evenings and/or on weekends. In total, about 12 hours per week.

 

Classes are held online. We are currently working on providing a high-quality hybrid learning format so that students can participate in classes at the KSE premises.

If an air raid starts during the class?

Your safety is our priority. Students and faculty are advised to move to the nearest shelter to continue classes in a safe place. If in the first 10 minutes after the start of the air raid 30% of students report about the impossibility of continuing their studies, the class will be stopped. Then, additional hours are allocated for conducting the suspended lecture.

 

If you are in the premises of the KSE during the air raid, you can move to the equipped shelters within the building and continue classes there.

If the light goes out during the class?

If more than 30% of the students have their light gone out during the class and it is not possible to continue, the lecture is stopped. Otherwise, the lecture continues, and students who were forced to miss it due to a power outage will be able to watch the recording of the lecture on their personal account in Moodle.

 

If during the power outage you are in the KSE premises, you can move to the prepared shelters within the building and continue studying there. You have access to the Internet for the next 3 hours from the moment the power goes out.

Language of study?

English, the Intermediate level is sufficient for studying.

Do you accept the results of IELTS, TOEFL, Cambridge English Language Assessment (CELA) instead of an interview in English?

Yes, if you have a Master’s or Specialist’s degree.

What is the size of the group?

20-25 students

Cost and payment?

The cost of the MBA program is 540 000 UAH. Payment is made prior to the beginning of each module.

Чи готові ми були до викликів сьогодення – чи ми будемо готові до світу нової формації? KSE GBS адаптувала свої навчальні програми до потреб воєнного часу та викликів післявоєнної реальності. Перемога належить тим, хто встигне адаптуватися до змін.
Українці змінили світ. Час змінюватися нам самим. Час бути Переможцями.

Якість знань підкреслюється їхньою актуальністю. Щороку KSE Graduate Business School оновлює навчальний контент щонайменше на 30%, залучаючи кращі світові практики та інструменти.

 

Цього року міжнародним освітнім партнером KSE Graduate Business School стала POLIMI Graduate School of Management, Milan.
POLIMI GSoM посідає 5 місце в Європі та 8 місце в світі за якістю онлайн МВА-освіти за версією Financial Times та входить до 20 найкращих світових університетів за рейтингом World University Rankings. 

KSE Graduate Business School рада представити нового партнера –
POLIMI Graduate School of Management, Milan

POLIMI Graduate School of Management посідає 5 місце в Європі та 8 місце в світі за якістю онлайн МВА-освіти за версією Financial Times та входить до 20 найкращих світових університетів за рейтингом World University Rankings.

Бізнес-школа є володаркою кращих світових акредитацій так званої “Потрійної Корони” (Triple Crown), які визнані найбільш авторитетними інститутами акредитації бізнес-освіти у світі – AACSB, AMBA, EQUIS. 

Оновлена МВА-програма містить спільні (joint courses) курси з POLIMI Graduate School of Management. Вони поєднують міжнародний досвід і бізнес-інструменти разом із навичками їх застосування в українських реаліях.
Ми працюватимемо з новітніми актуальними кейсами українського бізнесу у воєнний час та закладатимемо основи для розвитку бізнесу в післявоєнній Україні.

 

Одним із потужних оновлень програми стане Simulation Course (Симуляційний курс) з бізнесу, який залучатиме використання новітніх АІ-технологій. Студенти зможуть не лише досліджувати приклади вирішення бізнес-кейсів, але самостійно робити вибір та аналізувати бізнес-рішення з точки зору ефективності.

 

МВА-програма налічує Основні (core) та Вибіркові (elective)  курси* і фінальний Capstone Project. 

*Кількість вибіркових курсів становить 40% від МВА-програми. Раз на півроку їх перелік та контент переглядається та змінюється відповідно до актуального запиту. Основними критеріями вибору в оновленій програмі стали діджиталізація, менеджмент воєнного та післявоєнного часу і м’які навички.
