Belarus has high potential with its human resources professionals in ICT for attracting international business to the country. Since 2005, the share of ICT (Information and Communications Technology) services in the structure of Belarusian exports increased more than sevenfold and has been listed as second in the total exports of services, following transport.

This situation has created a gap between the challenges of the global market and skills/competences belarusian ICT graduates have at entering the profession. The main task of MACICT is to make specialists adept at growing professionally to fit fastly developing global trends in the sector and international market of technologies.

Here are some examples of common needs for belarussian universities presented at Conference “Informational technologies and systems ITS-2017”:

  • The existing MSc study programmes are mono-subject and do not provide graduates with soft skills required by the labour market;
  • Insufficient pedagogical skills, methods used by teachers;
  • Little orientation of methods to the labour market;
  • Lack of labour market participation in curriculum updates;
  • Not involving students in curricular changes;
  • No students’ work in groups for conducting projects;
