How KSE leads to happiness

  1. 1. How KSE Leads to Happiness! Tom Coupé Kyiv School of Economics
  2. 2. Happiness at KSE – a forewordAt the occasion of the first International Happiness Day (March20th 2013) and to the benefit of future generations of KSEstudents, I have developed a presentation that shows how thehappiness of KSE (full time) students evolves during the timethey study at KSE and how, eventually, studying at KSEincreases happiness.
  3. 3. The Summary• At KSE, we see education as an investment – it’s a joint venture between KSE and the student(s)!• Investing in education means a lot of hard work, but at KSE, even while investing there is a pay off. You attend great classes (econometrics!) and get to know a lot of fun and smart colleagues.• More important, at the end, KSE education results in – Extra Knowledge – Extra Skills and Tools (including how to work hard) – Extra Stress resistance (know how to handle set backs) – Access to a wide network of alumni – Increased Opportunities: Doors are Opened – Increased Earning Potential: +50% on average –  and extra happiness for ever after!
  4. 4. The Process• The end result is clear, but how do you get there?• The next slides will give you a hint!
