FEAS passed the Semi-Final in the International competition

March 21st, 2013

Under the motto ‘Invent Tomorrow. Impact Today’ Challenge Future is an international organization present in 213 countries of the world, which aims to resolve hundreds of real problems worldwide. One of the most important events of the year is Challenge Future yearly online competition.

Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, composed by Elena Pici, Jona Hoxhaj and Haris Krasniqi and academician PhD candidate Eglantina Hysa as a mentor, participated in this competition under the topic: Make it work! , whose focus was to come up with solutions how youth can fight youth unemployment, considering that 1 billion young people are estimated to be unemployed by the next 10 years. Our team solution was called ‘Activate Employment ‘and it consisted in three main drivers solution: Job Innovators ( training young’s to become entrepreneurs), Career Consultancy (organizing career consultancy days ) and Professional Education (promoting advantages of professional education and job division and specialization). This solution was accompanied with an action timeline and key performance indicators for short-term and long-term goals and it was bases on the results of the questioner made to 1000 young people in January.

We are very happy that among 1360 teams from 110 countries of the world we made it to the semi-finals round and we are very encouraged to work even more in our idea and to make it toward the finals. Above all, we are very confident in our idea and willing to realize in for real and have our impact among Albanian society.
