Besides the recognised top-of-the-range education in Economics, the Faculty of Economics provided me with an opportunity to develop and increase my leader’s capacity and master skills in professional communication and public speaking.
Only many years after the graduation ceremony and defence of my PhD thesis at the Faculty of Economics did I understood that I had got a unique opportunity of a head start for my career with highly professional wonderful lecturers and like-minded people. Studying and communicating with professors and students gave me a clear understanding that nothing is impossible, as each of us is responsible for creating their own future.
I am very proud of having graduated from the Faculty of Economics of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. I am the third generation economist in our family; therefore I had no doubt at choosing my specialism and the faculty. When I started my career, I realized that I had an obvious competitive advantage as compared to other contenders for the reason that my university had developed my systems of thinking and analytical skills and trained to make right decisions based on information from various sources. I did my degree in Economic Theory and I really appreciate my professors. I am happy that I had graduated from this specialism since the multi-functional knowledge I got made me a competitive candidate at the job market.
