Kse presentation October 2010


Published on

Київська школа економіка (в минулому EERC) – це навчальний заклад світового рівня. Школа пропонує дворічні магістерські програми за напрямами “Економічний аналіз” та “Фінансова економіка”.
Навчальна програма відповідає міжнародним вимогам і складена за зразком найкращих економічних та фінансово-економічних магістерських програм Північної Америки та Західної Європи.
Міжнародне визнання Школи підтверджується тим, що випускники отримують дипломи магістрів економіки (MA in Economics) не лише KSE, а й Університету Х'юстона, з яким Школа має домовленість.
