The new master's program is called “Talent Management and Human Development in Organizations,” due to the fact that people form the foundation for any business. And the foundation of a successful business is talented people. Our department delivers knowledge on how to identify talents and engage them to a company, how to develop, retain and use their talents for a company’s benefit.

Do you want your company to lead the market? So, you need to have talented staff! Such people have higher productivity, create unique products, value added and competitive advantage. Due to the talents, your company thrives, and their availability is not the ultimate goal of the business, but it is its competitive advantage. How to achieve company prosperity? This can be done with the help of our specialist. When our specialist comes to your company/organization, the first thing he/she does is measure/study the capacity of each staff member and understand where and how this capacity can be used in the most effective way.

We do know that each of us has capacity and often it is not used at all or is not used fully. Our manager conducts diagnostics of staff members using certain techniques and methods and provides management with recommendations on how to most effectively and efficiently place staff members in relevant positions. But that is not the end. Our specialist outlines managerial strategies: he/she develops talents and potential of a staff member, puts people into teams and sets tasks correctly. Such a team of united, capable, contemporary staff members easily and simply turns your company/organization towards sustainable successful development.

Currently the old approach does not work when, having a position, we are looking for a candidate to fill it and then write job responsibilities. Now all contemporary, sustainable companies oriented to a long-term prosperous future are geared to tapping individuals’ talents and managing the talents and capacities of their teams.

This is a new specialty; there are no such innovative university departments in the Kyrgyz Republic. Our university is the first to educate qualified specialists in this field. And our students will learn about the most significant issues in the field of talent management, learn to recognize talents and learn strategies for attracting them to a company. Such specialist, while recruiting and developing talented staff makes your organization stronger, better prepared for changes and risks. Such specialist is able to find ways to use the capabilities of new tools and solve problems or come up with original ideas,” - says Ms. Galina Gorborukova, the coordinator of the TALENT Master's Program.


Please note that the program adheres to an interdisciplinary and interactive approach to education with elements of distance learning. Students will be involved in applied research and internships at leading companies in the Kyrgyz Republic.
