The aim is to provide affordable education to fill the country’s shortage of skilled middle managers, particularly those who can speed European integration.
Most current MBA programs are targeted at the executive level with a focus on philosophy, vision and strategy, said Yuliya Tychkivska, the school’s vice president.
“This focus is great, but at the same time there are no programs oriented for those who do the actual job, middle management, the ‘doers’,” Tychkivska said.
These “doers” will have to confront the challenges arising from Ukraine having to do business under new rules and regulations as part of Ukraine’s free trade agreement with the European Union.
“Our experience showed that Ukrainian companies are tragically unprepared for these challenges,” she said.
