The university insists on promoting spaces for networking, investigating what the jobs demand is, the training of the workforce and what are the needs of the productive sector and the business world to then prepare the future graduates depending on the human resources needed by the region’s businesses as detailed in the press release.

UCAB Business Week 2024 is also aimed at those new entrepreneurs who continue to invest in the development of the region.

Adriana Lanz, Director of Planning and Strategic Management at UCAB Guayana, noted that the university seeks to be “an engine of regional progress, raising awareness about the challenges facing the community and fostering a proactive and development-oriented mentality.”

She highlighted the wide educational offering offered by UCAB, which also works on a research agenda in search of solutions to Venezuela’s crucial problems.

“The UCAB can establish links with the business sector through various mechanisms, such as participation in joint projects, consulting, advisory services, organization of events and training. These connections allow the university to better understand the needs of the business sector and adapt its educational and research programs,” Lanz said.

The UCAB also develops multiple efforts and initiatives that seek to foster an entrepreneurial culture among its students, in addition to providing them with tools and developing skills that contribute to transforming ideas into concrete realities. An example of this is the institutional Innovation and Entrepreneurship chair.
