Main fields of activities:

The Academy, though retaining the name "Metallurgical", in fact is a technical university with about 50 Degree Programs in engineering, economics and social sciences (http://nmetau.edu.ua). Our numerous graduates are employed at the majority of the metallurgical and machine-building enterprises of Ukraine at NIS, and also in other business sectors – banks, corporations, plants, SME-s. At the "University-University" level our Academy is looking for cooperation with EU and world-wide partners in different spheres. There is a big economic department in our Academy and, in particular, we are interested in introducing the international standards in economics /business education to our curriculum. We have wide experience of cooperation with European and world-wide partners, including participation in TEMPUS programs.
Now we work on a new project and are looking for foreign partners that could participate in it.

Background
The Ukrainian financial and stock markets are very different from the European ones. On the other hand the studying of the ways of development and state of the art of European stock and financial market may be very useful for Ukrainians.

• Investment joint education programs with Ukrainian Stock Exchange (http://www.ux.ua/en/),
• Seminars and round-table discussions in co-operation with brokers and investing companies.
The main form of our activity is the organization of special seminars and teaching a short course for beginners "The ABC of stock market and on-line trading". You can see the samples of this activity (photos and text in English) on http://nmetau.edu.ua/en/mfac/i1012/p0#stma. We cooperate with Ukrainian Stock Exchange and with the professional participants of Ukrainian stock market (brokers and investment companies and others).
Now we are looking for foreign partners to create new Joint Short Program with focus on the comparative study of the stock and financial markets.
