In line with its corporate social responsibility agenda, Deloitte continues to make investment in educational development in rural Azerbaijan.

On 16-18th April 2014 Deloitte in partnership with Azerenerji JSC launched a training program for 14 students at the Azerbaijan State Agricultural University in Ganja.

This joint learning program was initiated by Azerenerji and is part of its long-term commitment to support and contribute to the human capital development in the country through building effective workforce and youth career readiness in the regions of Azerbaijan. Deloitte and Azerenerji build their social mission concept on the importance of helping today’s students who are tomorrow’s workforce to gain essential business and economic immersion experience as well as increase their capabilities and competitiveness in the job market. Considering an acute need for specialized trainings amongst young jobseekers and graduates along with certain resource scarcity in the regions of the country, Deloitte and Azerenerji will extend the experience to the broader catchment area of Lankaran and two other regions, Mingachevir and Ganja. The proposed educational activities will aim at increasing local capacities of rural youth in IFRS and tax accounting as two key areas of the most demanded business services.
