The latest achievements of the Faculty include the establishment of close relations with 1C company, a well-known professional software developer, with the entry into a long-term co-operation agreement. In early 2009, a top-level computer class equipped with new furniture and modern powerful computers was set up with the support from the University's Rector Office. The latest version of 1C: Accounting for Ukraine software is installed at each PC. The objective of this project was to provide students with an opportunity to master the 1C:Accounting software without attending paid courses outside the University. This project reinforced the practical component of the study at the Faculty substantially.

The innovative development of the Faculty calls for the training of comprehensively developed professionals capable to carry and actively implement the knowledge ahead of practice.

Radical changes in major methods of teaching and training are occurring at the Faculty. The traditional lectures and seminars are being replaced with novel methods of teaching. They include, for instance, discussion lectures, training courses, case studies, business games, as well as other forms and techniques.

These changes are supposed to contribute to the personal and professional development of students of the Faculty in order to ensure the competitiveness of graduates at the labour market in Ukraine and the world, to support the harmonious development of students, the comprehensive development of the creative potential of the Faculty's team, and, as a result, the transformation of the Faculty into a leading institution in the relevant speciality in Ukraine.

Particular attention should be paid to traditions of the Faculty. They are maintained because most professors and teachers have graduated from the Accounting Economic Faculty. It creates a special microclimate, an aura of amiability, creative development, mutual assistance and respectful attitude to students as colleagues.

The Faculty's research potential is very high. For instance, the Faculty trained 31 ScDs in Economics and more than 290 PhDs in Economics over its 50-year-long history.

Students are the major achievement of the Faculty, because it cannot be imagined without them. More than 19,000 students graduated from the Accounting Economic Faculty over the time of its existence. There are almost 2,715 students at the Faculty at the moment. There are 1,322 full-time students, 185 evening students and 1,208 extramural students.

Training curricula, bachelor and master programmes have been developed on the basis of the international experience. They are highly appreciated by both domestic and foreign specialists.

Major attention is paid to the study of foreign languages. Students of the Faculty can study in foreign universities in parallel.

The high level of competition ensures the admission of well-trained young people from almost all regions of Ukraine to the University. They are characterised by the thirst of the economic knowledge, the professional training and the intellectual self-development. All proper conditions have been created for this purpose: the equipment base of the faculty is characterised by a dedicated building, well-equipped lecture halls, specialised class rooms, methodology offices. Providing students with own textbooks, manuals and education methodology materials is an important component of the faculty's work. All disciplines taught to students at the bachelor and master levels are supported with the course and methodological literature developed by researchers of the same team.
