Brief need analysis
According to the World Bank report “The skills road: skills for
employability in Uzbekistan” (2014), worker skills gaps are
hindering employment outcomes in Uzbekistan. In fact,
employers, particularly formal sector employers, seek workers
who possess both cognitive and non-cognitive skills. The higher
employability and higher wage rates among higher skilled workers
is mostly explained by the use of those skills in workplaces.
The higher education system, which is characterized by limited
enrollment and low involvement of private sector in curricula
development, can be made more relevant by forging closer links
with the labor market.
The survey conducted by Chamber of commerce and industry of
Uzbekistan (2015) shows that 43% of all enterprises willing to
undertake initiatives with involvement of HEI, additional 28%
enterprises if there is support from government authorities.
Objectives and activities
The purpose of the project is to analyze and propose measures to
enhance the curriculum of HEIs in the area of business and finance
based on the needs analysis of private sector and skills
development requirements of employers.
The project will undertake following activities:
o Survey among employers on needs analysis;
o Assessment of curriculum of HEIs in the area of business
and finance;
o Trainings for faculties of HEIs on curriculum development
based on the needs of employers;
o Elaboration of learning outcomes for internship programs
of students in enterprises.
