Chisinau, 9 February /MOLDPRES/- In 2021-2022 school year, with the support of the TEKWILL project, in four universities in Chisinau, Balti, Comrat and Cahul, teaching information technology (IT) or related sectors, entrepreneurship will be taught - one of the investment directions of the project, with support from the development partners of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Sweden.
"We believe that promoting entrepreneurship in our country can generate positive results, if it is linked to educating young people and developing related skills. The integration of a dedicated course in the field is more than a necessity for future specialists, as Moldovan universities face various challenges related to change or performance. We want students to learn more about entrepreneurship, to bring about a change of visions, knowledge and skills, to support the development of a digital economy ", TEKWILL project director Ana Chirița said.
From October, 40 students will benefit from knowledge and entrepreneurial guidance within the project. The course is implemented to be integrated into the basic educational program and certified in the bachelor's degree.
The pilot project will be implemented in partnership with the Technical University of Moldova.
Startup Academy, part of the Startup Moldova program, is an educational initiative dedicated to current and potential entrepreneurs, which is developed within the TEKWILL Project, with the support of USAID and Sweden. The basic objective of the Tekwill Project, as a platform dedicated to the progress of the IT sector, is to ensure a major impact on the economic development of the country by improving the entrepreneurial and educational capacities of the members of society, as well as the research and development potential of higher education institutions, in line with the demand on the IT market.
