Alfred Nobel University, Dnipropetrovs’k (DUAN) was founded in 1993 as a private higher education institution with a focus on Management and Economics. Until the year 2010, it was known as “University of Economics and Law, Dnipropetrovs’k”. From the start, it has been the central mission of DUAN to meet the demands of the Ukrainian labour market – especially small and medium-sized enterprises – for qualified personnel with a background in Management, Economics and Law and additional skills required in a competitive – and possibly multinational – business environment. Since its foundation, the university has continuously expanded its portfolio of study programmes: currently, 16 Bachelor programmes and 18 Master programmes are on offer, including an MBA programme for professionals, as well as a smaller number of doctoral and postdoctoral programmes. In October, 2010 the university was renamed in honour of Alfred Nobel – the founder of the Nobel Prize for a weighty contribution to promoting Nobel movement in Ukraine through holding a number of events connected with spreading Nobel ideas, and became Alfred Nobel University, Dnipropetrovs’k. In recent years, DUAN has focused particularly on introducing programmes beyond the disciplinary boundaries of Economics and Law, as e.g. Psychology, Political Studies and Social Work. In the year 2015-16, about 3.400 students are enrolled at DUAN, about 20% of who study at Master’s level. In total, the number of faculty amounts to about 150 persons, including both full-time and part-time teachers. The large majority of DUAN students is recruited from the city of Dnipropetrovs’k or the surrounding area. Also, most graduates find employment on the local market.
