Kyiv National Economic University named after Vadym Hetman


This 18-month program is especially valuable for professionals who are interested in developing, inspiring, and leading with authority, as well as deepening knowledge of the human side of management. Students examine and develop their international managerial and leadership skills through coursework, internships, and travel opportunities. Students in the MIM program emerge as confident global leaders and compelling speakers. Throughout the program, students must demonstrate their ability to understand and analyze international management and organizational challenges. Based on their analyses, students create possible solutions and evaluate the appropriateness of their recommendations. They analyze their experiences from each course and integrate their insights into a comprehensive final presentation which often serves as a proposal for change in their workplace.
