CEO of MenaITech Dr. Bashar Hawamdeh emphasized the importance of promoting entrepreneurship to Jordanian students as part of their primary education as this represents an investment in Jordan’s future.
Dr. Hawamdeh, during a ceremony recognizing the Jordanian students who came out as winners of the UCMAS international competition (held recently in Dubai), stated that encouraging entrepreneurship among students during their primary education will create a generation of ambitious Jordanians that will grow up to become leaders across different sectors.
With the students’ families in attendance, MenaITech recognized Sulaf Abdul Nabi, 16, for taking first place at the UCMAS World Championship and Marwan Jweinat, 10, for taking the first place in the first phase of the competition.
The UCMAS international competition was held on November 11, 2016 in Dubai with the participation of 2,200 students from 30 countries around the world. UCMAS is a unique mental development program for children designed to activate the mental capabilities embedded in their early stages of life. The program was designed with the goal of investing in the first 12 years of a child’s life, during which 75% of their mental capabilities are under growth and development.
