NIRSA creates meeting spaces to share knowledge with students from Espíritu Santo University
One of the strategic goals that NIRSA is pursuing is to work in coordination with its interest groups, one of them being academia. Consequently, the company has recently set two challenges for students of Espíritu Santo University (UEES) after an agreement in which actions that benefit the students will be carried out through the application of their knowledge in real life business situations.
The challenges that NIRSA, along with the university’s Centre for Entrepreneurship, will put forward to the students will be focused on the sustainable development and quality management. In both courses, the students will have to present proposals that provide solutions to the company’s real-life situations. The best proposals will be chosen by a committee of professors from UEES and representatives of NIRSA.
“We are an Ecuadorian company that is supporting local talent, and for this reason we keep our doors open to create actions that benefit the country’s academic sector. We trust that Ecuadorian universities are preparing future professional with great potential. Through this challenge, we are creating spaces to share knowledge and to contribute to the future of Ecuador. We are very proud to be able to carry out this project with UEES, who are committed to training great leaders.” commented Melissa Aguirre, Corporate Affairs Manager of NIRSA.
“The Eureka Entrepreneurship Centre encourages the development of key skills and expertise necessary for the entrepreneurial spirit of the university community. Working alongside a private company creates a big impact on the solutions that we as academics create for society. We have a lot of talented students, and we are confident that the challenges that they are working on with NIRSA with be invaluable for them to be able to continue to build the country we all dream of.” Commented César Vélez Del Hierro, director of the Esíritu Santo University Entrepreneurship Centre.
Through these actions, NIRSA is reaffirming its commitment to the academic sector in Ecuador and is helping students to develop proposals based on real-life business situations.
