On December 12, Russian-Armenian University (RAU) and Project Management Institute (PMI) Armenia Chapter signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the aim to promote awareness, interest and enthusiasm on project management to RAU students.
The major thrust of the MoU is to promote mutually beneficial cooperation between RAU and PMI Armenia Chapter. The MoU aims to promote experience in sharing and networking among students and project management professionals through seminars and networking events, as well as creating internship and job opportunities for students.
“One of the key strategic directions of PMI Armenia Chapter is reaching out to the academia and creating a platform where students can be part of the project management community in Armenia. We strongly believe that project management plays an important role in the development of Armenia. We are looking forward to improve and enhance our collaboration with RAU”, explained Mr. Thomas Mazejian, PMI Armenia Chapter Founder and President.
PMI Armenia Chapter has additionally launched the Membership Ambassador Program (MAP). Its goal is to help assimilate new members and to ensure that each new member receives the most value possible from their PMI Armenia Chapter membership. The ambassador is a representative at the chapter level that serves as a liaison between university students and the chapter.
“I welcome the initiative of PMI Armenia Chapter. We have exchanged some ideas on how we can foster our relationship by sharing experience and strategies to boost the project management practices. Project management plays an extremely important role in organizations, and the aim of Russian-Armenian University, as one of the leading universities in Armenia, is to ensure that students are well-exposed to the latest project management trends and practices”, highlighted Professor Armen Darbinyan, RAU Rector.
