OSH, Kyrgyzstan -- The Entrepreneurship Support Centre in Osh, with the support of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), held the first-ever four-week "Mini-MBA" in Business Management.
Thirty young entrepreneurs in Osh completed the four-week course on July 12, the OSCE said in a statement.
The course sought to strengthen the capacity of local entrepreneurs, particularly in improving their business management skills. Participants acquired hands-on experience with tools for boosting sales, reducing costs, using modern technologies and building long-term networks.
The course included interactive training sessions with specialists in strategic and financial management, human resources management, marketing and sales, said the statement.
Participants acquired theoretical knowledge but also earned to solve problems using their own business cases.
Giving countries the tools to spread prosperity is considered one way to defuse the appeal of extremism.
