Faculty of Accounting and Tax Management

Accounting serves as an indispensable language within the realm of business, showcasing itself not solely as a universal tool but also as an art form. Its value may not always be readily apparent to an observer, yet a seasoned professional comprehends its depth and significance thoroughly.
Accounting provides reliable, objective and lucrative information about the financial position and consequences of a business's activities. Owners, managers, shareholders, investors, government authorities, and other stakeholders leverage that information. The accounting profession requires talent and patience. Those who achieve mastery in this field develop the ability to perceive the intricate world of the economy in its interconnections and harmony through numbers.Leaders of successful enterprises acknowledge the importance of accounting and taxation specialists. They fulfill informational needs or requirements at all management levels, facilitating the making of adequate managerial decisions in a dynamic market environment. Experts in accounting, analysis, auditing, and taxation, trained by the Faculty of Accounting and Tax Management at Kyiv National Economic University named after Vadym Hetman, play a vital role in the business sphere for over 60 years.
The faculty was established in April 1959 as the Accounting and Economic Faculty of the Kyiv Institute of National Economy named after D.S. Korotchenko. On December 1, 2017, the Accounting and Economic Faculty underwent a renaming, becoming the Faculty of Accounting and Tax Management. At the time of the renaming, the faculty comprised five specialized departments: Accounting and Taxation; Accounting in Credit and Budgetary Institutions and Economic Analysis; Audit; Accounting, Control and Taxation of Agribusiness; and Accounting. Additionally, the Department of Physical Education was part of the faculty.
Between 2019 and 2021, a restructuring took place, leading to updates in the composition of the faculty's departments. This restructuring aimed to separate and refine areas integral to the specialty 071 "Accounting and Taxation". Consequently, the Department of Accounting and Consulting, the Department of Tax Management and Financial Monitoring, and the Department of Audit emerged from this process. Notably, the Department of Physical Education continues to function within the faculty's framework, maintaining its successful operation.
Since March 2016, Doctor of Economic Sciences, Professor Mykola Bondar, has headed the Faculty of Accounting and Tax Management.
