We wholeheartedly thank GlobalLogic for its support. I am convinced that thanks to close cooperation with one of the world’s leading IT companies, we will be able to even more actively improve the educational process at Lviv University, to bring it to a whole new level.

The main task of the dual form of education is to bridge the gap between theory and practice, which in return will increase students’ motivation to learn, and IT companies will have the opportunity to participate in an IT specialist formation from the first year of study. Now we are working for the future, but we are confident that we have made the right choice that will provide the IT industry with a large number of skilled professionals,” mentioned Ihor Kostiv.
