Mercatus Business School

We believe the primary goal of the higher education is to prepare students for meaningful life and successful career.

Why create a new business school?

In a new era of rapid technology innovation, when business environment is volatile and unpredictable, new types of skills and competencies are required.

 

Meanwhile, most business schools continue to:

  • Use outdated curriculum based on academic perspective and business theories.
  • Rely on theory and fail to impart practical skills.
  • Employe teachers with no or negligible real life business experiences.
  • Use lectures as the primary method of teaching.

We are creating a new type of business school in Ukraine

to raise the next generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs

by providing affordable and world-class business education.

World class curriculum and content

Companies seek talented employees equipped not only with relevant knowledge of how business works, but with ability to apply such knowledge into practice.

Besides using cutting edge curriculum to deliver up-to-date knowledge and information our students learn how to use everything they learned to deliver business results.

Emphasis on the 21st Century Competencies

In a new era of globalization and rapid technology automation, career obsolescence is the new normal. In this new world lifelong learning is imperative. Companies need adaptable talent for entrepreneurial work.


21st Century Competencies

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Learning to learn
  • Communication skills
  • Working with data/information
  • Critical thinking
  • Creativity
Focus on real life skills and tools

Companies seek talented employees equipped not only with relevant knowledge of how business works, but with ability to apply such knowledge into practice.

Experiential Learning methods

Extensive research on the science of learning validates the ineffectiveness of lectures, yet even top universities around the world still pursue this outdated method.

At Mercatus, we approach learning differently. Our methodological focus is on learning by doing, project based learning, constant reflection and iteration, and collaboration.

We don’t use lectures, instead we rely on socratic discussions.
Employer advisory group

At Mercatus we are developing relationships with a set of top organizations across a variety of categories. Through regular consultation with this advisory group, we help ensure the skills our students learn are directly applicable to employers.
Teachers with real life experience only

Mercatus teachers and guides come from the real world. These aren’t theory-driven academics. They’re real, successful business professionals and entrepreneurs.

We don’t believe in teaching by lecturing, rather we challenge students to create their own education and projects. Our teachers see their job as enabling, facilitating, empowering and inspiring their students.
Extended network of hiring and internship partners
