How university education is structured

In the first year of undergraduate studies, students of economics faculties have the opportunity to study several areas and gain fundamental knowledge, and in the second and third years they can choose a specialization. The training program often includes not only a theory and practice base, but also participation in conferences, excursions, and visits to major companies.

Students undergo internships in the best international companies, and often interns receive a good salary, which can reach 2-3 thousand dollars a month.
