in-depth study of the problems of modern foreign economic activity and the organization and conduct of scientific research by students in the field of foreign economic activity


The activity of the scientific circle, as a center of students interested in modern problems of foreign economic activity of Ukraine, began in the spring of 2012. The initiative to create the circle was based on the need for an extended study of the problems of foreign economic activity in the context of current challenges of the international environment, because the trends inherent in the global economic space fundamentally change the approaches to enterprise management, the techniques of conducting competition, and the requirements for goods and services offered to the market.
