We have great staff, but what is most important is the existence of a great Community of LvBS: the alumni of our programs, the participants of our events, those who share our values and aspirations. For us and I hope for the whole Ukraine, they are the driving force for further development and growth. Therefore, taking on this new role, I do realize great responsibility, and my main goals are the following: further strengthening of the brand of the School and the UCU and achieving ambitious goals we are facing nowadays —expanding the global presence of LvBS and developing our intellectual centers, as well as gradually making Ukraine strong and well-known on the business map of the world», – pointed out Yaryna Boychuk.
