The International University of Business and Law (IUBL) is a leading private university located in Kherson, Ukraine. Founded in 1993 after the fall of the Soviet Union, the university focuses on providing academic training for future professionals entering the economy of Europes second largest country.

The Business Management program includes an optional track that prepares students to sit for the professional accounting examinations. The program in Law prepares students for the professional examinations given annually by the Ukrainian Bar Association.

Students are assigned a faculty member to offset some of the difficulties of taking courses individually and flexible scheduling allows students to take these programs without compromising family ties or careers. This individualized approach has resulted in our high retention rate when compared to other schools

National Accreditation

The Higher Education System in the Ukraine.

The International University of Business and Law is a private university with full national accreditation that is duly recognized throughout the world. To place this accreditation in context, here is a short summary of the educational system and of the classifications used by the Ministry of Education.
Unlike their counterparts in North America, universities in the Ukraine are generally specialized institutions that offer programs to specific technical or academic populations. For example, some universities specialize in the Humanities, some in Education and others in Business.
All universities are supervised by the Ministry of Education to ensure that appropriate standards are maintained at each accreditation level, of which there are four.

Level I - Vocational schools
Level II - Schools offering the equivalent of Associates and Bachelors degrees
Level III - Colleges and Universities teaching Professional courses
Level IV - Universities licensed to teach on all levels, including Doctoral.

Some Level III and Level IV universities offer continuing education courses and off-campus courses at various industrial locations. Several Level IV universities have also been granted the right to prepare distance learning curricula and are currently active in this domain. IUBL is at the forefront of developing online programs consistent with this initiative.

The International University of Business and Law is accredited by the Ministry of Education and Science at Level IV (the highest level of accreditation given by the Ministry). The universitys accreditation rating has been assigned license number AB№048983.

International Accreditation

IUBL is an accredited member institution of IAU, the International Association of Universities of UNESCO
Depending on the document, IUBL will be listed either by its name in English or under its Ukrainian equivalent - Privatnij Vishij Navcalnij Zaklad Miznarodnij Universitet.
For further information about this UNESCO database, see
or contact UNESCO directly at +33 1 45 68 48 02
The School of Business Studies is divided into six main training areas. These are:

- Accounting and auditing
- Finance
- Marketing
- Organizational Management
- Economics and Economic Relations
- Law (Ukranian only)

Current interests of the faculty include Emerging Markets Corporate Finance, and the downsizing of bureaucracies through the application of public administration priniciples.

From 2003 to 2018, 200+ candidates were admitted into the post-graduate study department and another 15 persons were admitted as competitors for the Ph.D. At present, there are 15 post-graduate students. Over the past year, two post-graduate students at the University have defended their theses.

The general approach in the department is international and global. Management practices are studied on the basis of case studies drawn from a wide variety of situations encountered by both national and multi-national corporations. Students are encouraged to develop both a conceptual framework for integrating theory as well as the practical skills necessary to apply them. To encourage independent thinking as well as the ability to work together, every program requires the writing of a number of research projects. At least one project is done completely on an individual basis and one as a member of a five member team comprised of students from various economic and geographic regions.

In general, once they have been successfully defended, all theses and dissertations are published by the University and distributed internationally to over one hundred universities for further comments, as required by law.

Faculty of Law
The faculty trains students to enter the legal profession in the Ukraine. As such, there are no plans currently to offer courses in Law for international and online students from this faculty.

The purpose of this prospectus is to provide current students with information about various administrative procedures and about significant dates in the calendar pursuant to successfully fulfilling the various faculty requirements. A secondary purpose is to make this information readily available online so that prospective students can better acquaint themselves with university programs and regulations before they making their final decision to register.

Its purpose is to provide you with an overview based upon the full school year, to help you plan ahead and to ensure that you get the most out of your education.
