Professional programs

While many graduate and undergraduate programs in leading universities may seem too academic, potential students may choose professional programs or degree in applied science. These programs do not prepare you for career in academia, but give knowledge and skills which are indispensable in real life in career in business of public sphere.

Professional programs are available for students with different interests and professional backgrounds: existing programs include Master’s in Education, Agriculture, Journalism and Mass Communication and even Military Science. The widest array of programs is available for those who want to study Economics, Business or Management. Some professional programs may require several years of professional experience (usually no more than 5) in order to be admitted to the program. In this case your working experience would be more important for admission decision than your academic achievements. However, many universities accept students without professional experience: in this case students have to demonstrate their academic abilities as well as to provide a clear motivation to study this particular subject.

In general, professional programs is the best choice for those who already know the sphere of his or her future career. While these degrees may be not very flexible, they almost guarantee a fresh start for your career not only because of relevant knowledge, but also as a result of incredible networking opportunities.
