Training program for state officials in Ukraine’s de-occupied territories commences

Ukraine’s initiative to train state officials for the de-occupied territories is set to kick off in April. The Reintegration Management Program, spearheaded by the Mission of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and executed by MIM Business School, will provide free training to prospective public servants. The program aims to engage around a hundred candidates for roles in the future de-occupied regions.

This topic was deliberated upon during the program’s session at the Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform.

According to Tamila Tasheva, the Permanent Representative of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, the program integrates managerial skills, particularly their practical aspects, with substantive knowledge pertinent to the de-occupied territories and the requisite expertise for working within them.

Iryna Tykhomyrova, President of MIM Business School emphasized the program’s online format, which will allow attracting specialists from all over Ukraine with only two offline events, including the grand opening of the program, scheduled. 

The program features a core curriculum covering fundamental management skills and three specialized tracks: strategy and security, economics and innovation, and organizational development and leadership. Participants have the flexibility to choose one or all three specializations.

Tykhomyrova stressed the program’s focus on commitment and dedication to the reintegration cause. She underscored the importance of the program’s concluding group project to implement reintegration strategies in the de-occupied territories.

Iryna Tykhomyrova emphasized, “First and foremost, we anticipate individuals prepared to dedicate their efforts, expertise, and even their lives, as this endeavor should not merely be about employment, but rather a calling for the reintegration of the de-occupied territories.”

She further highlighted that the program’s culmination will involve a collective project aimed at reintegrating these territories, with potential for future implementation. ‘I am confident,’ she stressed, ‘that this pioneering initiative marks the inception of a new cadre of managers committed to working within the de-occupied areas.’
