Indiana University of Bloomington (USA)

The project with Indiana University was aimed at setting up a School of Public Administration and Management at Western University. The School is graduating specialists to be engaged in the public service and administration. The main purpose of the project is to promote the wider dissemination of appropriate elements of the American system of education in Azerbaijan. It is also intended to help to build Azerbaijan’s capacity to modernize rapidly in its way to democracy.

The project was successfully implemented. In August through October 2002 our two staff members visited Indiana University so as to study the whole range of Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs content and structure. They were engaged in elaborating curriculum and identifying the structure of School with the help of visiting Prof. Randall Baker, Director of School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University.
