AMMAN — Within the USAID Jordan Competitiveness Programme (USAID JCP) to develop Jordan’s workforce, Luminus Training & Consultancy announced this week in a press statement that it has launched a project to develop an entrepreneurship curriculum at five Jordanian universities.

"The entrepreneurship curriculum will target university undergraduates with the objective of promoting self-employment, innovation and self-starting ventures," the press release said.

The programme, funded through a grant by USAID JCP, will feature the development of entrepreneurship curricula to be adopted across higher education institutions in Jordan, it added.

The one-year project, which will be implemented in collaboration with the King Abdullah Fund for Development (KAFD), will be conducted across five local universities: Al Hussein Bin Talal University-Ma’an, the German Jordanian University-Madaba, Princess Sumayah University for Technology-Amman, the Hashemite University-Zarqa and the Jordan University of Science and Technology-Irbid.

Luminus has partnered with three partners to implement this project. The three partners are: International Youth Foundation (IYF), OASIS500 and Analyseize.
