Lviv IT Cluster to Launch Three New Bachelor’s Degree Programs


Lviv IT Cluster is not only about the improvement of the tech industry, but also about continuous brainstorming, relevant project selection, and implementation. The association pays great attention to education. Lviv IT Cluster has already modernized or launched from scratch 14 Bachelor’s degree programs in local universities that allow students to get the tech skills that are required by the market needs.

Lviv IT Cluster member companies are actively involved in the association’s educational projects. It is an excellent opportunity to strengthen their brand awareness and be in contact with students who might want to join their companies in the future. Companies’ current employees can also develop new skills by becoming mentors or teaching a specific course at a degree program. Thanks to the active support of Lviv IT Cluster member companies and partners, the association is about to launch three new Bachelor’s degree programs at local universities: two at Lviv Polytechnic National University and one at Ivan Franko National University of Lviv.

  • Bachelor’s Program in IT Sales Management

The first Bachelor’s degree program was launched at the Institute of Computer Sciences and Information Technologies of Lviv Polytechnic National University. The profession of IT Sales Manager is in high demand in the modern market. After finishing the program, graduates will understand customers’ diverse and specific business needs and apply product knowledge to meet them. The program offers an opportunity to choose between three professions: pre-sales, sales, and post-sales. IT Sales Management program was launched thanks to the cooperation between the university teachers and IT specialists of the Lviv IT Cluster member companies involved in curriculum development.

Igor Luzhanskyi, founder of Chatbots.Studio, shared his thoughts about the program: “Fortunately, we have a strong engineering school in the country, which allows us to do great projects, but we still need to work on our client relations and sales skills. For me,  as the IT company owner, this was one of the primary reasons to initiate a degree program that would train high-quality specialists in IT sales. During the curriculum development, it was crucial to me that students acquire both theoretical knowledge and practical skills, and I am glad that we have managed to create this kind of program with our great team.”
