The priorities in the organization of teaching are thorough training, a creative approach to mastering knowledge, as well as making conditions for the realization of individual abilities. The focus is made on providing of systemic level of studies, making connections among the subjects taught, establishing interdisciplinary courses, developing independent work skills, implementing active forms of the teaching process, and effective methods of testing.

Acquiring new techniques of teaching and exchanging experience in teaching combined with doing research on topical issues of economic development are made possible due to fruitful contacts with companies, agencies, and related universities, including those beyond Belarus.

BSEU has a well developed infrastructure of a training and scholarly complex: 11 schools, 54 departments (of which 38 are graduating ones), the Institute of Social-Liberal Education, the Institute of Raising Qualification and Retraining Economic Cadres, the Bobruisk branch, six Centers (those of scholarly research, macroeconomic research, management issues and consulting services, merchandising research and expert examination, IT development and a publishing one), a library, research labs, divisions and services, a student campus, a sports complex and a trade complex.

Being the leading school of higher learning in the field of economics, BSEU is in the process of constant development, searching for new forms and methods of teaching. Currently, the following educational activities are in place at the BSEU:

  • Pre-university training
  • First and second phases of higher education (undergraduate and master’s programs)
  • Doctoral and post-doctoral (Dr. hab.) programs

There are over 1,300 faculty members. Almost half of them hold advanced degrees and scholarly titles, including 100 doctors habile (Dr. hab.) and full professors and 610 with a Ph.D. degree.

Training specialists with higher scholarly qualification is done at the graduate school (49 majors of doctoral programs) and post-graduate courses (14 majors), both full-time and part-time. Under the auspices of the BSEU there function 5 councils on defending dissertations, with 154 successful defenses in place over the recent five years. Modern realities affect our activities and make it a necessity to train well educated specialists with initiative and business skills. The faculty’s efforts are aimed at providing students with solid professional training, knowledge of economic theory, computer technologies, calculus, foreign languages, as well as forming highly qualified and well organized personalities.

The key point in teaching is to provide a systemic level of cognition, a wide use of active forms of teaching and learning, discover individual talents of students, and apply effective methods of graduates’ knowledge control and state certification.

Creative contacts with the national and overseas universities help enrich the process of teaching with practical information and provide a wide exchange of experience, as well as conduct research on relevant issues of the economic development and identify the most promising trends of training specialists based on the needs of the national economy and domestic labor market.
