Faculty of Applied Sciences - Ukrainian Catholic University

Ukraine Lviv September 2018

The Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU) is a dynamic private educational and research institution training a new generation of leaders to meet practical global and local challenges through high quality education, personal growth and active social responsibility. In 2015, the Ukrainian Catholic University, together with the Lviv business community, Lviv IT Cluster, and leading IT companies, opened a new Bachelor Program in Computer Sciences — CS@UCU (Computer Sciences a… [+] t UCU). CS@UCU is the only program in Ukraine modeled on the best schools in the field of Computer Science in the world – Stanford University and the University of Waterloo. The program was launched as there is a great need for highly qualified IT employees. In 2016 there were created Faculty of Applied Sciences. Mission of Faculty of Applied Sciences Faculty of Applied Sciences is a program, which forms leaders in the field, who will use their knowledge to influence the present and the future Ukraine and the world. Vision of Faculty of Applied Sciences Faculty of Applied Sciences is an intellectually stimulating program which expands the frontiers of education in Computer Sciences and Information Technology in Ukraine. Our future graduates are not simply successful employees at world-renowned IT companies, they are multi-faceted individuals who are prepared to create new products and services, new ideas and meanings both in the field of Information Technology as well as in other areas of life. Program description Faculty of Applied Sciences is directed at students who are interested in hard working and self-improvement in order to gain professional skills in modern information technologies and computer sciences needed for successful job placement in the current market. Program content was developed in cooperation with leading IT companies in Lviv and taking into account the stipulations of the new law “On Higher Education in Ukraine”, best Ukrainian and foreign practices, recommendations of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the Institute of Engineers in Electrical Technology and Electronics (IEEE) (2013), as well as the Ukrainian Council on Competitiveness of the Industry of Information-Communication Technology (2014). The program is planned as a four-year program and includes subjects in the area of professional and humanities blocks. Among core subjects for students are: Software Engineering; Information Assurance and Security; Programming Languages; Parallel and Distributed Computing; Discrete Structures; Graphics and Visualization; Human – Computer Interaction; Data Analysis; Information Management; Intellectual Systems; and Business Analysis. For program lecturers, it is extremely important that the knowledge of computer sciences and information technologies which the students gain while studying in the Faculty of Applied Sciences be useful. Therefore, the curriculum of every core subject foresees practical assignments and case studies which have been submitted by professionals who themselves work in the IT industry. Besides learning process students have an option to attend different clubs: Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Front-end/Backend, Game Development, 3D-Modeling and Algorithmic Programming. Integral parts of the learning process also include meet-ups with opinion leaders (each week), summer practicums and internships at IT companies and a particular feature of the program is an increase in foreign language knowledge. Beginning with the third year, certain subjects of Faculty of Applied Sciences are presented in English. Given the fact that the modern world is multi-polar and that innovations and discoveries happen on the edges, on the collision of cultures, languages, etc., we lay out the intersection of many disciplines: history of great ideas; critical thinking; academic writing; and social entrepreneurship. Professional training is implemented through various practicums and summer internships at partner companies and through project-oriented courses directly related to the work of the IT industry. The close relationship of UCU’s Lviv Business School will allow interested students to gain knowledge on the basics of business, innovation and entrepreneurship. The program strongly encourages talented students to create their own flexible learning path, taking into account the wide offerings of quality educational products in the global education market (massive open online courses, participation in internships at foreign universities, specialized certificate courses of program partners, UCU education, etc.). The program maintains good contacts with companies such as IBM, Google, Twitter, Epam, SoftServe, Eleks, Sigma Software, Ciklum, Gramarly, Perfectial, Romexsoft, as well as individuals and a number of universities like Carnegie Mellon University, New York State University. Some of the computer science programs in Ukrainian universities are changing their curriculum approaches following Computer Science Program at UCU. The first admitted CS@UCU student cohort was one of the strongest in Ukraine. The average applicant score was 186.5 out of 200 through an external independent evaluation. The average score in math was 193/200 with 60% of the students scoring more than 195/200 points. The average score of the second of admitted students at the CS@UCU program is the strongest among all Ukrainian universities with computer science programs. In September 2016, we open an English-language practically-oriented Master's program. [-]

The International Management Institute (MIM-Kyiv)

EMBA MBA Ukraine Kiev September 2018

What does studying at a business school mean? To say the least, it means acquiring formal knowledge; not any business school can educate a person or, moreover, induce one to something. It can just provide knowledge. It can form system vision of one’s own business, boost new thinking and new development strategies. It can be the site which intensively accumulates collective experience, where new approaches… [+] to business management arise and new contacts are established. Business education phenomenon also means involving a person into the community of people sharing the same ideas, the community of high-fliers who are aware of challenges of their time and strive for personal development. It is this community that shapes creative environment, provoking original ideas, selecting and testing mechanisms for their successful implementation. It is at a business school that partnership network between business and an educational institution is created and becomes a platform for discussing and testing new business strategies, employing efficient tools to enhance business competitiveness. At MIM-Kyiv versatile partnership and comprehensive ties are promoted through the community of alumni the number of which is over 1500 (MBA program). Many of them are the heads of well-known domestic and multinational companies. Forming a system vision of business and strategies for its development as well as mechanisms and tools for efficient achievement of company’s major objectives is a guaranteed outcome of studying at MIM-Kyiv which, in fact, is a challenge to conventional organizational business culture. The MBA program at MIM-Kyiv is based on philosophy and methodology of competitiveness which embraces the whole period of studying. Together with Ukrainian business we are considering the ways of entering new markets, launching new ideas, reaching new levels of business development. And we focus on those who are aware of these novelty trends. MIM-Kyiv being scientific and practical business school creates new vision for the civilized development of Ukrainian entrepreneurship and its integration into world economy. We are looking ahead saying, that efficiency of our business is being measured not only in financial terms, but more and more in terms of its impact on  the society, on the social and ecological environment. The evidence of this is implementing the principles of socially responsible business – the global initiative of the UNO. The near future will witness that without observing these principles the growth of quality results neither of a separate enterprise nor that of the country as a whole is possible.   History The International Management Institute (MIM-Kyiv) was established in 1989 at the initiative of Bohdan D. Hawrylyshyn, a prominent scientist, philosopher and public figure.It was a joint venture of the International Management Institute, Genera (later IMD) Switzerland, one of the best business schools in Europe, and the Institute of Economics of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. It was the first business school in CIS countries and it started in Kyiv! Since then “the first” has been steadily attributed to MIM Kyiv, to its story of success. To be the first always implies responsibility. To determine and establish new trends and standards is the rule for MIM-Kyiv. [-]
