Economy, Business & Control Faculty
Kuprina Natalia Mikhaelovna,
At present the demand for well-trained professionals in the field of economics is quite high, despite the fact that they are trained almost at every high education institution. Quick change of the economic situation, the entry of foreign companies to the Ukrainian market after the country's accession to the WTO traditionally generate a high demand for workers of economics, so training of highly qualified specialists in the sphere of economics, accounting, finance does not lose its significance, but even takes a special meaning.
Faculty of Economics of the ONAFT began training of engineers - economists in 1933, and since that time it has trained more than 10 thousands of specialists.
Today, the Faculty of Economics, Business and Control performs teaching of students in two traditional specialties in education and qualification levels (EQL) «bachelor» and EQL «specialist»: «Business Economics» and «Accounting and Audit». Both specialties have been accredited in accordance with the highest, IV-th, level, at the Faculty trains bachelors are trained (4 years, day-time), specialists (1 year). As for the correspondence form of education: bachelors – 5 years, specialists -1 year.
One can obtain a master's degree in three programs for masters (1,5 years): «Accounting and Audit» (day-time form of education); «Business Economics» (day and correspondence forms), and since 2014 a new economic master program is opened - «Management of financial and economic security» (day-time), which is very popular and demanded nowadays.
In 2011 we opened for the first time a reduced three-year bachelor educational program for graduates from colleges and technical schools who have a diploma of a junior specialist. Such education is possible to obtain both at the day-time department and at the correspondence department. Since 2014 a two-year program is opened for bachelor education for graduates from colleges and technical schools in integrated curricula for students in specialties «Business Economics» and «Accounting».
The educational process at the Faculty is closely linked with industrial enterprises: students have technological, productional and pre-diploma practice at the leading enterprises of food industry, restaurants, hotels and tourist companies of Odessa Region and Ukraine ("Vitmark-Ukraine", "Shabo", "Fores" "Mironovskyi Khleboproduct", "Odessa Karavai", "Odessakonditer", "Midel», «Love to travel», «M. Only» and others.
Specialty «Accounting and Audit» is traditionally popular, and it is not by chance. Not a single enterprise can work without an accountant or an internal auditor. Today, his/her work is not only necessary, but it is also well paid. In most countries of the world, despite the saturation of the labor market with accountants, auditors, supervisors there is their advanced growth relative to other professions.
Work of an accountant has been transformed from monotonous to creative. The accounting today is an information system which reflects the status and movement of assets, settlements and liabilities and financial results. Our graduates have skills of work in the field of economic analysis, accounting and financial accounting, taxation, auditing, control and audit not only in the sphere of industrial production, but also in the field of commercial services, in the field of small-scale business, in activities of regulatory authorities, forensic accounting examination. The importance and necessity of such knowledge is dictated by wide development of small business in Ukraine, rise and development of production, a revival of scientific and production potential, it opens up wide opportunities for our graduates in employment in the following positions:
