Role of organization in the project

L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University is oriented at the market and the ultimate consumers of the educational services – the employers (enterprises, businesses, state and governmental organizations etc.), that employ our graduates and expect them to have a set of competencies and skills.

Employers set requirements as to the quality of academic programs, while the university in its turn must meet them.

In ENU Employers participate in the whole academic process, namely:

  • in design, expertise and actualization of education programs
  • in organization of professional internship
  • in evaluation of learning outcomes and the level of training
  • in external evaluation of the quality of academic process (monitoring level of satisfaction of the employers)
  • in employment of graduates.
