Project Summary, Objectives and Results
Improvements in the relevance and the quality of education are critical to Uzbekistan’s transition to a market economy and democratization. A better educated population has more chances for engaging in lifelong learning, and can participate more effectively in the economic and social spheres of the country. However, the Soviet model of education, which emphasized a high number of compulsory subjects in general education and highly specialized programs in technical and higher education, is no longer consistent with the need for greater flexibility required in a modern market economy.
Taking into account the importance of business education improvement for sustainable development of the private sector that directly corresponds with higher economic growth rates and poverty reduction, the Project sets the objectives to strengthen institutional capacities of the International Business School “Kelajak Ilmi”.
The growing demand for its services and graduates’ job placement illustrates, that the school is able to effectively adapt its curriculum to the evolving market needs. It is expected that a success of this type of private business school may provide a useful model for future replication.
