History

Alfred Nobel University was founded in 1993 as a private higher education institution with a focus on Management and Economics. Until the year 2010, it was known as "University of Economics and Law, Dnipropetrovs’k". From the start, it has been the central mission of UAN to meet the demands of the Ukrainian labour market – especially small and medium-sized enterprises – for qualified personnel with a background in Management, Economics and Law and additional skills required in a competitive – and possibly multinational – business environment. Since its foundation, the university has continuously expanded its portfolio of study programmes: currently, various Bachelor and Master programmes are on offer, including an MBA programme for professionals, as well as a smaller number of doctoral and postdoctoral programmes.

In October, 2010 the university was renamed in honour of Alfred Nobel - the founder of the Nobel Prize for a weighty contribution to promoting Nobel movement in Ukraine through holding a number of events connected with spreading Nobel ideas.
