Jumpstart – Career boost for University Students
In June, we started empowering Myanmar citizens to enter the professional world from the moment they leave university. Our team work closely with leading universities Mandalay Technological University (MTU), Yezin Agricultural University, and Technological University, Mandalay (TUM) to radically improve prospects for new graduates, providing them with the unique opportunity to study for the prestigious Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® program, accredited by the Project Management Institute – the perfect head start for project managers of the future!
What, why and how
The employment rate of university students educated in Myanmar post graduation is extremely low. This year, we decided to make a change. To support graduates and attempt to bridge this gap, MPC is providing the opportunity for Myanmar students dramatically boost their chances of employment by providing both education in project management plus the accompanying soft skills vital for careers in finance and leadership. Our program Jumpstart is sponsored by prominent companies across a range of industries, with students being offered real work internships after completing 3-day intensive courses. Exemplifying this, our course in collaboration with Yezin University was sponsored by Asia Hlaing Kyaw Family, a foremost import / export firm in the agricultural sector, providing graduates looking to thrive in this market with an instant competitive advantage.
