Generalized-review information on Department of Economics 

Department of Economics is one of the basic training-educational divisions of Lviv Commercial Academy. Its origin comes from 1899, when there was launched Higher Trade School, established in Lviv according to Rescript of Ministry of Religion and Education of Austrian-Hungarian Empire.  

At the different stages of the Soviet period of its existence the Department of Economics was in operation as a part of Trade-Economic and Economic Faculties – as a pre-graduate department.

Same as the a.m. higher educational institution itself, the Department possessed different names: «Department of Economics of Soviet Cooperative Trade», «Department of Economics of Trade», «Department of Economics of Enterprise» etc. Still, both the object and the matter of its activity stayed and remain unchanged, namely: training for highly-qualified economists for the system of consumers’ cooperative society and other sectors of Ukrainian economy. Non-alternative and decisive condition for fulfillment of this task both at the time of creation and in the subsequent periods of formation and development of the Department there was (and still remains) its professor-teaching staff.  

Today the Department of Economics is the leading department in the Institute of Economics and Finances. Its field of activity is training of specialists in specialty «Economy of Enterprise» and «International Economy», which was licensed in 2015. Starting from 2016 the Department will effect admission of students for specialty 051 «Economics» (specialization «Economy of Enterprise», «International Economy») and 076 «Entrepreneurship, Trade and Exchange Activity» (specialization «Economy of Trade and Restaurant Business Enterprises»).
