Education for Students

The Kyiv School of Economics (KSE) offers two internationally recognized master programs: 

The curricula of both KSE MA programs are based on the best practices of leading international universities. The language of instruction is English. The KSE faculty is a consortium of Western-trained local and international professors, who have strong teaching and research backgrounds and are outstanding practitioners. As a result, the unique training that KSE students obtain makes them highly competitive in the job market.  KSE graduates work for leading Ukrainian and international businesses and international organizations, study at top graduate programs worldwide and occupy important government positions. Our alumni surveys show that KSE graduates earn 50 percent more than their peers without KSE education. 

The two MA programs offered at KSE were specifically designed for two different career tracks: the one-year MA in Business and Financial Economics focuses on careers in business, while the two-year MA program in Economic Analysis prepares for careers in academia, policy and international organizations.


In partnership with the University of Houston (among the top 25 US universities  for international students), KSE also offers its students an opportunity to obtain a Master's degree from the University of Houston (UH) while studying at KSE. KSE courses are officially cross-listed at the UH department of Economics, and are counted toward the UH MA degree in Applied Economics (for the one-year KSE MA program) and the MA degree in Economic Analysis (for the two-year program), if the student meets all academic and administrative requirements of the University of Houston.
