Methodology. The features and the transformation processes which defined environment conditions for financial and economic as well as cooperative education in the second half of the XIX – the beginning of the XX century on the territory of Western Ukraine were identified. Special attention is paid at the identification of financial and economic as well as cooperative education with business culture that includes the need to consider the public interest. A very important role of activation of the cooperative movement in the Ukraine Western territories that were not independent was admitted. The institutional framework of the development of the financial and economic as well as cooperative education of the population that has proved a key role in these processes and various institutions of self-education partnerships was analyzed. The broad functionality of such associations and the transformation of the main goal of its activities from educational proper to educational, financial and economic were revealed. The basic achievements of associations and associates in terms of the support for the establishment of various organizations for the business purposes, cooperatives, educational institutions, professional courses, publishing, organization of specialized events, financial institutions, etc. were described. The performance of other institutions was researched; their main activities for the development of financial and economic as well as cooperative education of the population in the Western territories of Ukraine in the second half of the XIX-the beginning of the XX century were specified. Taking into consideration the significant role of the cooperative movement for the formation of financial and economic as well as cooperative education of the population at that time, some economists-philosophers and their lay-outs in the advantages of this form of economic activity were mentioned. The characteristics of financial and economic as well as cooperative education in the Western territories of Ukraine in the second half of the XIX-the beginning of the XX centuries with a focus on national values, self-organization, dissemination of professional schooling, which were a prerequisite for the further development of the system of the higher financial and economic as well as cooperative economic education were provided. Practical implications. Financial and economic as well as cooperative education is becoming an important subject of research for the Ukrainian scholars because of the significant gaps in its quality assurance. In spite of the sufficient amounts of trained professional economists, a workforce lack remains in the areas of financial management, accounting and auditing, insurance, Internet commerce, etc. It is quite negative, as the high quality of financial and economic as well as cooperative education has a significant potential positive impact on the economy and business in general. As L. Zahlynska and A. Lukomska admit, it is revealed in improving the investment efficiency, not only in education but also in other sectors of economy; attracting people to the development of entrepreneurship and acquisition of new enterprise features to increase the number of small and medium enterprises; increasing the number of the self-employed in the national economy sectors; enhancing the competitiveness of Ukrainian population on international labor markets, its confidence in the effective employment, actualization of possibilities and desires of each person will contribute, in their turn, to establishing a progressive civil society (Zahlynska, 2014). The main objective of the financial and economic as well as cooperative education is realizing the opportunities for the individuals to self-actualize as a financially and economically active member of society who is able to be consciously engaged in financial and economic as well as cooperative life of the country (Tovkanets, 2014). Therefore, in the context of structural and functional framework, financial and economic as well as cooperative education is intended not only at generating relevant knowledge, but also at applying them for social development. Material of the considered article can be used for the preparation of teaching aids, seminars and training courses on financial and economic as well as cooperative issues. Value/originality lies in the fact that the subject is not widespread among Ukrainian researchers in economics and more often gets the focus of the scholars-pedagogues. We made an attempt to explore this area in the light of financial and economic direction of cooperative education and its need for the Ukrainian society on the territory of Western Ukraine in the end of the XIX – the beginning of the XX century as well as the importance of getting education, independence and well-being of the community from an economic point of view.
