   The Master’s Degree educational-professional program "International Economic Relations" is a new specialty, which is a classic direction of training international economists at KNEU. It is designed to form professional competencies necessary for work at the international, state, and business levels. The curriculum of the educational program is formed taking into account the requirements of the leading European universities regarding the training of masters in this field. Fruitful cooperation with a number of European partner universities (University of Foggia (Italy), University of Economics in Bratislava (Slovakia), Krakow University of Economics, University of Rzeszów (Poland), Stopanska Academy (Bulgaria), etc.) made it possible to form modern content of educational disciplines and their competitive scientific and methodological background.

     The competitive advantages of master's studies have been formed for a long time within the master's program "European Business", which was launched in 2005 and was closed in 2020. This program was an exclusive specialization of training international economists, able to implement their acquired competencies at the supranational, state, regional and business levels. The specificity of the training was the formation of practical knowledge and skills for conducting business in an international environment, the ability of specialists to work in conditions of intense competition and strict rules regulating activities in various sectors of the continental market.

     The proof of the high-quality masters' training in recent decades is the successful employment of our graduates: in government agencies (Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine, etc.), in the Delegation of the European Union to Ukraine, in the European Busines Association, as well as in some leading European multinational corporations ("Nestle" (Switzerland), “Rehau”, “Siemens” (Germany), “Hilti (Ukraine) Ltd” (Liechtenstein), "Auchan", “AJC Development” (France), “FineTime LTD” (Great Britain), etc.).

     Our teaching staff is a good example of the efficient team-work. We took part in a number of international projects: Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Training Projects, Lifelong Learning Programme, Tacis-Tempus (EU), “Largis” (UK), training programs (London Metropolitan University (UK), Fund «InWent», Friedrich Ebert Foundation (Germany)), National Convention on the EU in Ukraine (Slovak Aid)) etc.

   Department stuff actively develops international cooperation with the National Council on Economic Education (USA), Regional Studies Association (UK), European Business Association (Ukraine), the University of Newcastle (UK), University og Foggia (Italy), Krakow University of Economics, University of Warsaw, Rzeszow University (Poland), University of Economics in Bratislava, Technical University of Košice (Slovak Republic), Gazi University (Turkey), and other universities and research institutions worldwide.
