Besides, WIUU cooperates with business schools abroad (Schiller International University (London, UK), Ukrainian Free University (Munich, Germany), as well as with other Ukrainian universities in their specific and research projects; conducts joint programs with the Universities of the People’s Republic of China.
WIUU is famous for organizing workshops on resume writing, job interviewing techniques and other relevant issues. As International organizations working in Ukraine support WIUU, our students have excellent opportunities to gain experience through their business internship at the leading Ukrainian and International companies as well as at different government establishments. Furthermore, our students constantly meet the representatives of foremost Ukrainian, international and joint companies, social, political and administrative organizations, members of American Chamber of Commerce, responsible members of diplomatic missions, MPs and foreign embassies within the work of the Master Class.
As to students’ life at WIUU, it is rather interesting and various. These are not only classes but also scientific and research activities, participation in annually sport and cultural events and festivals organized by our University. WIUU students also publish a weekly newspaper, where they can share information, world , country and University news and reveal their finds. More than that, our students and faculty members prepare and celebrate together different Ukrainian and international holidays. Students arrange diverse entertainment programs in English – concerts, games, competitions and discos. In addition, WIUU students are also encouraged to take part in varied trips and excursions in Ukraine and other countries.

WIUU is open for students from different cultural and social backgrounds. We also welcome students from outside Ukraine, providing them with learning and accommodation facilities. Our international student body makes up around 25 percent of all the students enrolled in the University programs.
