International Humanitarian University
The university was created in 2002 in Odessa when most of non-state higher education institutions were already celebrating their tenth anniversary of stay in the educational market needed considerable courage and audacity of our founders. To be competitive in the educational market, a new university had to be special.
By the time the University was established, the creator of the university, Sergey Vasilyevich Kivalov had already created the most modern educational and scientific complex of the Odessa National Academy of Law, located at the 4th Station of the Bolshoy Fountain. And now – a new fulfillment.
The first licensed specialty was that of “International Economic Relations”, followed by “Management of the Organizations” and “Management of Foreign Economic Activities”. Then came “Jurisprudence” and “Philology (translation)”. The curricula was thoroughly prepared by university workers, were discussed in the Ministry, literally each program was exposed to the most detailed examination.
On April 13, 2005, the University moved to a new building at the 5th Station of the Bolshoy Fountain. The surrounding neighborhood changed for the better. The initial building allotted to the University was reconstructed. In 2009 Sergey Vasilyevich Kivalov set the task of accrediting the University as a whole. Probably, the academic year of 2010–2011 was the most intensive and challenging for our staff.
Nowadays the University is still quite young institution, but with the efforts of teachers, students and all staff was confidently approved in educational, scientific and cultural space of Ukraine. Today the University provides training of junior specialists, bachelors, masters, postgraduate and doctoral students from national and international law, economics and management, computer technology, linguistics and translation, medicine and pharmacology, art and design, etc. Moreover, each university faculty initiated creative areas of training, which focused on the current demands of the labor market.
