About the program

The “Business Economics” program prepares highly qualified economists with a unique set of competencies. The curriculum of the program is developed based on the experience of the best universities in the world, as well as leading universities in Central and Eastern Europe. The program aims to provide students with a wide range of modern fundamental and specialized economic, financial, and mathematical-statistical knowledge and skills, research methods, and practices. The program also includes a block of disciplines related to ICT technologies, allowing students to acquire competencies related to the application of AI and other IT technologies in modern economics and business. At the same time, significant attention in the program is paid to the development of students’ critical and analytical thinking, and immersion in the socio-cultural and humanitarian context of the modern world. Distinguished academics and researchers from the USA, UK, Sweden, and other European countries are actively involved as guest lecturers in the program. Joint courses with leading universities in the region are also part of the program. This provides students with the opportunity for academic and research interaction with their peers from other countries. Additionally, during their studies, students actively interact with the business community, gaining practical experience and directly communicating with representatives of the business environment. The competencies formed within the program offer students a wide range of choices for further careers in the field of economics and finance. Graduates of the program will be prepared to work in business, primarily in innovative fields (information technology, digital engineering, instrumental design, etc.), as well as in financial companies as economic analysts. The demand for such competencies is steadily growing in the Central and Eastern European region, partly due to the acute need for such competencies from the innovative Belarusian business sector. Students who wish to continue their education can expect successful admission to master’s (doctoral) programs at leading universities worldwide.
