Entrepreneurial Education: from Ideas to Execution
Education is one of the four priorities selected by GEN Global for GEN 2020, along with topics such as the Entrepreneurship Ecosystem, Politics and Inclusion. GEN Global considers education as a tool for informing and educating people of all ages about entrepreneurship, from early childhood development centers to higher education institutions. GEW Education is provided with the resources, raises awareness and provides training for aspiring entrepreneurs around the world. This topic focuses on the tools and programs that communities use to develop entrepreneurship.
It is already the second year that GEW Uzbekistan has focused on the topic of education and entrepreneurship, as this is the topic that has been of great importance to the Uzbek government over the past few years. Education, and to a greater extent higher education, is being developed in seven steps, its internationalisation is taking place and new forms of ownership are coming into higher education. Higher education itself has become a business project. In recent years, more than 30 new higher education institutions with the participation of foreign partners have opened, and private higher education institutions have emerged. These include TEAM University, the first private business university. One of the main tasks of this university is to educate responsible entrepreneurs with critical and analytical thinking, capable of thinking globally, creating innovative projects, promoting and implementing them. It is therefore quite natural that TEAM University is the main platform for GEW Uzbekistan 2020.
GEW 2020 has a more focused focus on higher education and includes elements related to the other three priorities chosen by GEN for 2020, namely the business ecosystem, politics and entrepreneurship inclusiveness. Therefore, the following topics were added to the agenda for the week: entrepreneurship.
