Universidad Iberoamericana (UNIBE) and Arajet signed a cooperation agreement to develop training activities and programs to foster the entrepreneurial spirit of students.
The agreement, which is valid for two years, seeks to link UNIBE students and graduates with Arajet through its schools so that they can carry out their professional internships with the airline.
In addition, it will promote internships, the inclusion of Arajet in the university’s Job Board, through the UNIBE Alumni Circle (CEU), as well as joint programs of community service, research and development in the aeronautical area.
“We are pleased to make ourselves available as an academic platform to promote these initiatives that seek to create job opportunities for young people in the aviation sector, which is going through a period of growth in the DR,” said Loraine Amell Bogaert, UNIBE’s vice rector of Internationalization and Liaison.
Victor Pacheco, CEO and founder of Arajet, noted that “in the next 5 years we project to generate 4,000 direct jobs and 40,000 indirect jobs with the new ecosystem that will be formed around the Dominican airline industry.
Leandro Féliz Matos, Dean of Innovation and President of the UNIBE Alumni Circle, said, “I am very proud that this group of aeronautical entrepreneurs is leaving Dominican soil. We offer our research and execution areas to accompany them in the different solutions and needs that arise”.
The agreement was signed at a ceremony attended by authorities from both institutions, who were pleased with the strategic alliance to promote the training of new talent.
