I am a big fan of getting an MBA in Ukraine. We looked at global cases from the perspective of the local context, gained insights into the Ukrainian market from colleagues, but most importantly, we got a network of cool professionals in the market where we plan to develop. If I were to make a choice now, I would not change anything. Although... I would go to another stream, because you can never have too much networking!

Kateryna Netymenko
CEO of Uber in Ukraine.


KSE and Politecnico di Milano (Polimi) have created the perfect combo of a true international MBA that combines data and knowledge.

Dmytro Zinchenko
Director of Reduced Risk Products (IQOS), member of the Philipp Morris board in Ukraine (MBA24).


KSE, and especially the MBA program, teaches students to understand and develop economic behavior to make Ukraine and the world a better place. I believe that this is exactly what we need in Ukraine right now, leadership and reorganization of our economic relations and practices to create better conditions for us and for future generations after the victory.

Vadym Miskyi
Member of the Supervisory Board, Chairman of the Audit Committee at the National Public Broadcasting Company of Ukraine (MBA 24).


I doubt that I would have reached my professional level without the KSE MBA program. Quite simply, KSE helped me grow professionally and personally. The knowledge and skills I gained during my MBA program exceeded my expectations and opened up new opportunities in my life. The level of the program and teachers is not just good, but incredibly high. I did not regret a single minute or hryvnia spent on this course. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to take their life to the next level.

Bohdana Sydorenko
Co-founder of the startup GameTree. Bizdev startup and owner of the Nika-Text Plus business (MBA23).


I am convinced that you need to learn all the time. The world, both today and at other times, is changing rapidly, and if you do not improve your level of competence, you can lose your rhythm and potential in achieving new goals. KSE today provides a very high level of knowledge, and that is why I chose this school, and the MBA is interesting to me precisely because I can apply new knowledge and approaches in practice. And I can confirm that they do give results.

Andriy Dubas
President of the Association of Ukrainian Banks (MBA 24)


Now, in my free time, I need to find the strength and self-discipline to read and analyze business literature. You also need to not just sit through lectures, but also think, engage in discussions, and answer questions. Therefore, this training is definitely not for "just for fun" or for general development. The leitmotif of the program is doing business in a complex, if not chaotic environment (how relevant is this for us!). Where the old rules no longer apply. And I will have to break a lot of patterns that I have developed over ten years of work in commerce. And the thought of revealing secret knowledge makes me feel very warm. This is the motivation to go all the way to the end and become the best version of yourself.

Kateryna Kolodka
Business Development Manager at Huawei Consumer Business Group (MBA 24).


  • What if an air raid starts during the class?

    We care about your safety. Students and the lecturers are asked to move to the nearest shelter to continue the class in a safe place. If 30% of the students in the group report in the first 10 minutes after the alarm starts that they are unable to continue their studies, the class is suspended. Then additional hours are allocated to conduct the suspended class. Records of all classes are stored in students' personal accounts on the Moodle platform.

    If you are in the KSE premises during the air raid, you can move to the equipped shelters within the building and continue classes there — the School's premises are equipped with generators and a constant Internet connection.
