Although education in Tajikistan grows from a very limited base, with schoolchildren still attending only half-days, very limited language capability and information infrastructure, I have built my career on pushing innovation into this system. With my business school students, I have rolled out a curriculum for consumer behavior modeling, based on randomized-control trials. This involved not only creating analytical tools and information-sharing mechanism, but teaching new student behavior.
I am a professor of banking and commerce at one of Tajikistan's leading universities, and have studied banking and foreign languages overseas, as well. I have studied the Basel Capital Accords particularly, and lead business students in practical applications of theoretical knowledge to solve everyday problems in our country.
The world is changing fast and demands a new kind of thinking. Our students should be multi-lingual, our style of learning should be practical and based on real-time business needs, and students should be encouraged to creatively solve problems across the disciplines.
