As part of the celebrations of Kazakhstan’s Independence anniversary, the capital’s Business Women’s Council organised professional master-class workshops for KAZGUU students.
The guests shared their professional experience in building successful businesses and told the students about the opportunities that are provided today by the state for the development of youth entrepreneurship.
Korobko, Vice-Chairman of KAZGUU, informed that at the moment the university is launching a project to support student start-ups. “At KAZGUU an expert group will be created that will assess business ideas and student projects. It will also provide organisational and financial assistance to the most promising ones. This will include, for example, help with attracting investors, obtaining state subsidies, etc.”, noted N. Korobko.
At the meeting, the students presented an innovative project on protecting the rights of convicts in Kazakhstan. This project was the winner of the Capstone Project competition, part of which was the research on the convicts’ rights. They informed the audience that, based on the results of this study, they will develop recommendations for improving the national programmes in criminal penal law, criminal procedural law, and international law.
In addition, there was a presentation of the special issue of the magazine Women. East-West dedicated to the Independence anniversary, called “Kazakhstan today. Astana women’s faces”.
As part of the long standing collaboration, an agreement has been reached on naming an auditorium in KAZGUU University after Astana Women’s Council. According to B. Bisembayeva, the chairmen of the Council, this step will symbolise the contribution of the women members of Astana’s business community into training highly specialised lawyers.
