“Business administration is a chain, where, along with meeting business objectives, it is also quite important to present solutions that are flexible, attractive and best suited to the needs of the customers. They should be designed to reflect the core values and the responsible attitude of the company, to add competitive advantage, and last but not least, to contribute to sustainable economic development of the country. Your enthusiasm and determination to succeed are worthy of respect. This platform offers you a wonderful opportunity to apply the acquired knowledge in practice, and it will help you to become more confident and to have a clear vision of the future,” stated Ralph Yirikian.
The JAA “Entrepreneurship and Civic Activism for Students and Teachers of the Vulnerable Communities in the Republic of Armenia” program operates in 150 schools and works with over 2500 students in all regions of Armenia. It is sponsored by the JHM foundation and the HSBC bank. The aim of the program is to arm students with entrepreneurial and economic skills. The students learn the fundamentals of market economics and apply it to real life by forming and operating student NGOs. The program also teaches the students to become active citizens, work in teams and address the issues of their communities.
The members of the winning team were awarded with “Alcatel Pixi 4” smartphones by VivaCell-MTS General Manager.
