In the modern competitive world, education is one of the most significant preconditions for the personal and professional development of an individual. The fundamental goal of the Fund Ardza’s educational activities is to promote the concept of ethical business and raise awareness about the principles of corporate social responsibility among young leaders and foster the values of corporate citizenship in different communities of Georgia.
The Fund actively cooperates with different higher educational institutions of Georgia with the aim to incorporate the course on corporate social responsibility and business ethics in the study curriculum. Internship programs at the Alliance Group Holding and its subsidiary companies are offered through the partnerships with the Universities in order to increase the motivation of young leaders.
In February, 2011 Alliance Group Holding through the Fund’s support signed a memorandum of partnership with the Caucasus University. Based on the memorandum, new course on corporate social responsibility has been integrated in the study program of the University. Each year, the top three students of CSR course will receive monetary awards and books on corporate business ethics and will be given an opportunity to complete 3-6 month internship program at their preferred subsidiary companies of Alliance Group Holding.
