The International Summer School "Project Management: Problem Solving and Decision-making" was held on June 7 to 17 June 2021 in online mode.
The summer programme was organized by the Institute of Economics, Management and Information Technology. The preparation and organization of the Summer School was supported by the Department of Information and Technical Support of UMTE and the International Cooperation Department.
The program of the International Summer School was developed specifically for students who study at universities in the CIS countries. The topic of the summer school aroused a wide interest among students, and we received more than 200 registrations, so it was decided to divide the program into two classes. The first class was held on June 7-10, and the second class - on June 14-17.
The Summer School attracted students from the largest universities in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, and Moldova.
The participants of the summer program were able to gain up-to-date knowledge in modern project management, learn the main trends, and gain basic skills in project management. In addition, participants acquired not only new knowledge, but also skills in problem solving and decision-making in the field of project management.
Mentor of the Summer School - Kuzmina Ksenia – MPA, PHD in Linguistics, Associate Professor, Department of Management and Public Administration, UMTE, a certified L&D expert in evaluating learning and development impact (ATD, USA), specializes in strategic and project management. Ex-CEO of Private Educational Institution “Institute for Enterprise Issues”.
Ksenia put a lot of emphasis in this program on honing the practical skills of the participants, so every day, the participants were engaged in the development of their own projects in international groups. The result of the summer school was the development of the final group project, which included the practical application of all the knowledge gained.
The mentor noted that all the projects received are unusual, promising and practical.
Undoubtedly, all students were able to improve their knowledge in project management during these 4 intensive days of work, and this is evident in their final projects.
