The memorandum signed with Apricot Capital will strengthen this commitment, and our students will have an opportunity for practical application of their knowledge and a deeper understanding of the dynamics of the labor market.”

Vachik Gevorgyan, the CEO of Apricot Capital, said: “Having a skilled workforce is of paramount importance for the financial sector, especially for the investment companies. Considering that investment activities and such companies are emerging in Armenia, we emphasize the significance of enabling young individuals with the intricacies of this field starting from their student years. In this context, the collaboration between the university and the private sector is more vital than ever. I’m confident that the tangible outcomes of our partnership will soon be visible.

Furthermore, high-performing students may secure future employment opportunities with Apricot Capital.”

According to the terms of the memorandum, Apricot Capital will support the enhancement of university facilities, including auditorium renovations and technical upgrades. The renovation of one such auditorium has already started.

Both Diana Galoyan and Vachik Gevorgyan emphasized the pivotal role of well-equipped classrooms within the educational institution. “We are delighted for the willingness of Apricot Capital to improve the learning environment of our students by generously donating an auditorium to the university, which will be named “Apricot” in honor of the company. This gesture aims to promote the company’s visibility among students and further establish its reputation as an employer”, noted the Rector.

The newly renovated auditorium will be opened by the end of this year, serving as a hub for professional seminars, open classes, and meetings.
