Myanmar is en route to become a fresh breeding ground for a new wave of aspiring entrepreneurs as Lithan University College prepares to provide a Professional Diploma in Technopreneurship.
Building on the success of the Startup Bootcamp arranged with the support of Channel News Asia in October 2014, the course is set to land during a period in which Myanmar’s demand for telecommunications services is growing rapidly, changing the way citizens communicate and businesses transact through the internet and mobile devices.
“Students will be within a unique position to benefit from this growth whilst the country is booming with both foreign and local investment and become a vital part of the country’s recovering development” says Thiri Thaw, Principal at Lithan University College. Lithan University College is a cooperative education provider in Myanmar.
Graduating with a Professional Diploma in Technopreneurship, students will be armed with a firm grasp of the knowledge and skills required to become successful entrepreneurs for technology products and services.
Top entrepreneurs and industry practitioners from Yangon and the International community will be on board to lead participants through experiential learning methodology and develop relevant and practical skills in technology venture creation, business model innovation, product marketing, sales process and business management framework.
Furthermore, all students will have a opportunity to network with potential employers, business partners and investors to explore potential partnerships or employment.
Whilst Myanmar is the second largest country in Southeast Asia, the quality of the education system has deteriorated over many years, resulting in a severe shortage of skilled workers. Thanks to a growing technological landscape coupled with a young population, Myanmar could leapfrog many other countries development paths. To achieve this, it is absolutely necessary to provide a well structured curriculum for aspiring entrepreneurs and a comprehensive resource solution for High Tech start-ups to have a sustainable pool of talents.
Lithan University College confidently states that anyone can become a successful technopreneur given proper education, training, mentorship and experience, and has high hopes the technology industry could potentially create millions of jobs and raise living standards for many families.
