The structure of the program has three parts:

Part 1: Residential Training

The program commences with a 3-day residential module held at the Graduate School of Business of Nazarbayev University in Astana. This module is taught in English with simultaneous translation into Russian.

Part 2: Webinars

After the residential module, there is a series of three online webinars.  These webinars are interactive and allow participants to ask questions to a Kazakhstan business expert.

Part 3: Developing Business Plan

After the residential sessions, participants are encouraged to submit Business Plans. The business plans are submitted electronically and after the professor’s review they are returned to the participants with the personal feedback.

After successful completion of the program, all participants will receive a Certificate of Completion. This Certificate entitles SME alumni to participate in the “Business Connections” program.
