The Kyiv School of Economics (KSE), founded by the Economics Education and Research Consortium (EERC) and the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in 2006, is a world-class academic institution with a reputation for excellence both in Ukraine and internationally. KSE ranks among the top schools in Central and Eastern Europe, producing the future generation of world-class economists. In doing so, it helps to improve the economic, business, and policymaking environments of Ukraine and its neighbouring countries.

The Kyiv School of Economics (KSE) offers three internationally recognized graduate level programs:

One-Year MA Program in Business Economics
Two-Year MA Program in Economic Analysis
Two-Year MA Program in Financial Economics.
These programs share a number of basic principles: their curricula are based on what is taught at leading international universities, they are taught in English and they are taught by a combination of international and Western-trained faculty who have strong backgrounds in teaching and research, and outstanding practitioners.  The education based on these principles provides the opportunity to KSE students to get top jobs in business, academia and international organizations and to get top level salaries:Our alumni surveys show our students earn 50 percent more than what they would have earned if they would not have studied at KSE.
The focus of the programs are different however, with the one year MA in Business Economics focusing on careers in business, while the two year programs in Financial Economics and Economic Analysis focus on careers in academia, policy and international organizations.

A similar agreement for the one year program is currently being negotiated.
