Demand is rising as some employees are taking a break from working at a time of pay cuts and layoffs to enhance their skills, said Iryna Tyhomyrova, the president of the International Institute of Management.
A record 100 students are studying for an MBA at Kyiv Mohyla Business School, compared to 70 in 2013. It hopes to boost admissions another 30-40 percent for September.
Those still working are seeking more flexible formats in which they can come after work and have short, practical courses. “They want fast knowledge,” Tyhomyrova said.
