This research demonstrates the need for change in the Ukrainian military educational system. Shaped after the Soviet style, the current military educational system is still highly specialized, with a strong emphasis on training. The traditional approach to an officer's preparation is quickly rendered obsolete by the rate of progress. Moreover, rapid and constant changes in the international and domestic environment, the emergence of new missions, technical advances, and the information revolution require a creative and adaptable educational system as well as life-long learning. Ukrainian officers today need a qualitatively new level of knowledge of international law and organizations, ethnicity and culture, economics and human rights, civil-military relations, and information technology. The military educational system bears a heavy responsibility for providing adequate knowledge to the officer corps, and it should become an agent for change.
