Talented Human Capital
Ukraine is a large European country with over 40 million highly educated people, 70% of whom have secondary or higher education.
The reputation of Ukraine’s workforce as highly skilled and sought after is the product of the educational system intensely focused on technical and scientific disciplines.
The country’s engineering prowess has become the key driver for the rapidly developing Ukrainian IT industry. With over 130,000 engineering graduates annually, Ukraine is home to the largest IT engineering force in Central and Eastern Europe.
The Ukrainian education system has given its workforce one of the highest levels of English proficiency in post-Soviet countries. In addition to Ukrainian, English, and Russian, many Ukrainians speak other languages as well, reflecting Ukraine’s cultural and trade relations with its neighboring countries and beyond.
Ukraine’s youth doesn’t differ greatly from their counterparts across Europe – they are democratic, modern, hard-working, tolerant, creative and resourceful. An additional growth driver comes from the desire of Ukrainians to see their country integrated into the global economy and to engage in a dialogue with other like-minded nations. Ukrainians have a well-earned reputation for being able to do the hard work required, no matter what the job.
