The Managerial Skills Development Center
(MSDC)


The Managerial Skills Development Center is a Bulgarian-Japanese project under the partnership between JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) and the Institute for Postgraduate Studies-Division (IPS) at the University for National and World Economy-Sofia (UNWE). The project is also supported by the Ministry of Economy and Energy of Bulgaria, Embassy of Japan and Ritsumeikan Asia-Pacific University.

The Center offers practically oriented courses and programs tailored to the needs and expectations of Bulgarian enterprises especially for small and medium-sized enterprises. In a long-term perspective, the reinforcement of the managerial skills and leadership of Bulgarian managers will direct Bulgarian companies towards more efficient and competitive entities in the global business arena.

The collaboration between Bulgarian and Japanese experts from the business and educational circles created training programs with best business practices incorporating the experiences of world leading companies in dealing with specific problems.

Worldwide, General Electric invests about 1 billion USD on training and education programs. Chief Executive magazine’s “Top 20 Companies for Leaders” survey ranked GE as the number 3 company for grooming talented senior executives.

"Because people make our automobiles, nothing gets started until we train and educate our people."
Eiji Toyoda, Toyota

"People must develop through work. The key is curiosity. One needs a mind and a heart that constantly look for problems to solve and keep asking questions. Many people do not stop complaining about their working environment, and all they need to do is search around with an open mind."
Sadako OGATA, President of JICA


Motorola has calculated that every dollar spent on training returns $30 in productivity gains over the following 3 years.
