On Thursday, March 9, AmCham Macedonia organized an event in the spirit of advancing cooperation between companies that are serious about investing in human resources and four Skopje-based faculties within Saints Cyril and Methodius University (UKIM). Roughly 100 guests from the business community, university representatives, diplomatic corps, international organizations and state institutions attended the event.
Business people from 30 companies heard from UKIM Rector Jankulovski as well as Deans from the Faculties of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering & Information Technologies (FEIT), Information Sciences and Computer Engineering (FINKI) and the Faculty of Economics. Their presentations summarized their efforts to collaborate closely with the business sector, including the need to improve the quality of internships. Participants then had a chance to talk directly with all speakers and their colleagues about initiating new cooperation or deepening existing relationships.
In her opening remarks, Michelle Osmanli, Executive Director of AmCham Macedonia noted: “The guiding principle should be ‘quality over quantity’. The joint goal shouldn’t be to maximize the number of MOUs a faculty or company has, but to maximize the positive impact on students of our efforts; thus sincerity and proactivity from both sides is crucial.”
