The New School is a University located in the New York City, one of the most vibrant and diverse cities in the world. The University is where scholars, artists, and designers come together to challenge convention and create positive change. Since its foundation in 1919, The New School has redrawn and redefined the boundaries of intellectual and creative thought as a preeminent academic center.
YOM Institute of Economic Development has a Memorandum of Understanding signed to work together with The New School University since a couple of years. Accordingly, each year some of the University’s internship students have a regular visit and stay in YOM, Addis Ababa.
This year’s internship students arrived at YOM, under the team leadership of Professor Mark, on June 31/2018 and made a fruitful discussion with YOM’s staff and officials. Professor Mark is expected to offer a guest lecture in the areas of Project Monitoring and Evaluation to the YOM community in June 2/2018.
On the occasion, the Managing Director of YOM, Dr. Melkamu Tadesse, and the Quality Assurance and relevance officer, Mr. Masresha Teferi, have presented on the general directions and quality approaches of the Institute. Dr. Melkamu also presented the potential collaboration areas to strengthen ties between the two organizations.
The New School intern students have raised their different concerns and spot-on responses were presented to each issue raised. Dr. Bamlaku Alamirew, the General Manager of YOM, has also made a point on bilateral relationships and other issues raised by the participants.
