Research Infrastructure

At MUGT, all departments will be equipped with ultra-modern research facilities. Laboratories will boast an extensive range of state-of-the-art equipment. Numerous basic, applied and social research centers of excellence will form the backbone of Research and Development resources. The establishment of the Virtual University and the Regional University system points to the fact that within Developing Countries there is the realization that such collaboration is essential for both education and research. Top Regional Business Schools can forge a new association through which they will share resources and expertise, promote academic and student exchanges and conduct research aimed at boosting Entrepreneurship, job creation and economic development on the Regional Countries.

This Strategy plays a key role in leading Regional Developing Countries towards stronger linkages among Local Business schools as well as global collaboration. Youth unemployment and education are the most pressing challenges in Developing Countries and this Strategy is an important step towards enhancing entrepreneurship across these Countries. A sustainable solution to unemployment is a well-directed entrepreneurship ecosystem and a more effective educational system. The main idea is to build a network that will support entrepreneurship education across Regional Developing Countries.

Other major objectives are to invite collaboration between global business schools in the academic study of entrepreneurship, and to build knowledge bridges with industry. The fuel to innovate is created when people with different experiences, realities, passions and ideas come together with the mandate and support structures to develop new possibilities.

Research and intellectual collaboration in the Developing Countries entrepreneurship space will enable the exploration of the wealth of diversity and contribute to sustainable development. Each Region had areas of expertise, and one initial activity would be to look at how to combine this specialist knowledge and perhaps develop a joint research agenda. Secondly, this strategy would look at faculty exchange so that schools could share experts, as well as at student exchange.


  • Technology Parks

The past ten years have seen intense attention focused on the interactions between technical change, innovation and economic growth; this in turn has led to the rise of new technological policies. Tools and platforms such as incubators in addition to science and research parks have become an important means for shaping science and technology policy.

TECHNOLOGY PARKSMUGT’s Science and Technology Park will host high-tech companies employing highly trained R&D personnel. The University will enhance R&D potential through University-industry collaboration. These Technology Parks will promote the “peripheral eco-innovation model” that is composed of several units, each feeding the science park with value-adding influxes, including:
  • On / Off Incubation Centers that will help students to transfer their ideas into innovative companies.
  • A Technology Transfer Office that will work for commercialization of research outcomes.
  • A Business Angel Network that will supply the early stage companies with necessary support.

  • Start Ups

An apt business idea develops when innovation augment a million-dollar plan. Today innovations drive startups and certain educational startups in some Developing Countries are a result of such innovations. Other Developing Countries allocate new funds to help jobless graduates set up businesses. That established fund is for university graduates to start businesses to help stem the country’s high employment rate.

Most graduates end up on the streets, with some even resorting to vending as Countries economic crisis deepens. Usually, the governments are obligated to set up a Graduate Entrepreneurship and Employment Promotion Program with considerable seed funding to support the creation of business ventures by graduates-University students. These programs accompany entrepreneurial skills development courses designed to help in setting up the businesses.
