Reception of a delegation from Karazin Business School (Ukraine)

From 18 to 24 June 2023, the IAE and the head of the Master International Executive MBA - Ms Jocelyne Groux -, welcomed four Ukrainian teachers for a training mobility (STT) as part of the ICM project (International Credit Mobility - KA171 call 2022) with their institution:

  • Anton KVITKA - Deputy Director / PhD (Economics), Associate Professor
  • Davydov DENYS - Director of the Karazin Center for Entrepreneurship / PhD (Economics), Associate Professor
  • Volodymyr RODCCHENKO - Professor (Business and Administration Department – Department of Management)
  • Yuliia KVITKA – International cooperation manager

During their stay in Lille, the Ukrainian colleagues were able to attend the defence of a thesis by a Master 2 student in Roubaix at La Redoute, on the company's premises, and and took part in 8 assessments of the Master 2 International Executive final year defences, in the presence of the companies and sometimes the families, at the IAE. It was a great experience to discover that, despite a different language and culture, the conclusions reached on the defences were similar between the different assessors.
They were also able to meet representatives of local start-up projects, with the aim of promoting internship opportunities for future Ukrainian students coming in Lille.

The visit, organised by the IAE in conjunction with the International Mobility Department, was also an opportunity to discuss the double degree with Karazin Business School, which is currently being renewed, and to do some job shadowing with the IAE's teaching staff.


Each mobility program follows a specific application procedure. If you are interested in one of these mobility schemes, please contact the international relations department of your faculty/component.

You can find contacts for international relations departments on our dedicated page.
