The Chairs staff devote much attention to the quality of teaching. They conduct seminars and tests in the key topics, introduce elements of business games and case studies.

In order to improve the control over the students’ knowledge teachers make use of the new computerized testing system based on the “Tests Constructor” software, which makes it possible to examine and analyze students’ knowledge in many subject areas. To avoid the monotony of the teaching process and to provide students with practical skills the Chairs staff organize different role games. During these games students feel themselves like real specialists in accounting, auditors and controllers solving the problems that occur in practice.

Students’ research activities help them think in a scientific way and form a creative approach to their studying. Since 2000 a student scientific circle has been investigating the most interesting trends in accounting. Under the guidance of teachers students prepare reports which they present at the circles’ sittings.
