Kyiv National Economic University offers a wide choice of programmes and courses for the students: Bachelor’s programmes in economics and management1, Master’s programmes2, postgraduate and doctorate programmes3. They are aimed to develop individual and professional abilities of the students and represent different level of academic achievement.

Bachelor’s degree programmes in economics and management are profession-oriented and require four years of study. The first two years (the freshman4 year and sophomore5 year) are aimed at providing general education and preparing for more special studies. The last two years (the junior6 and senior7 years) are devoted almost entirely to the majors. The undergraduates8 major in those subjects9 which are essential for their future activity.

The academic year10 is usually nine months duration and is divided into two terms11. The students have an examination session at the end of each term. At the end of their studies they have to submit a graduation paper12 and take the state examinations13. The Bachelor’s degree is usually known as the first degree and may be a terminal qualification. But it is often considered as a background for further specialization, a step toward higher degree.

The Master’s degree programmes require one or two years of study beyond baccalaureate. The Master’s degree candidate follows a rather specific course of study, usually in a single field.

The postgraduate programmes provide a deeper study of philosophy, foreign languages and subjects related to the chosen major and lead to the candidate degree.
