Life after WIUT Doctorate Jamboree/Summer School for Young Economists

02/5/2016

Interview with a postgraduate student from Urgench State University – Olimjon Saidmamatov

One of our former summer school and jamboree participant has been awarded the best postgraduate dissertation national award by the Ministry of Higher Education. Here is his reflection story.

I participated in Summer School for Young Economists jointly organized by Westminster International University in Tashkent and International Food Policy  Research Institute (IFPRI) in 2015 and I also took part in Doctorate Jamboree at WIUT in 2015 and 2016. I did so to improve my research skills as an economist. The Summer School taught me how to use econometrics and statistical data analysis tools; Jamboree taught me how to be a critical thinker, writer and presenter. I can proudly state that both events significantly helped me to win the first place for the “Best MSc Dissertation” national postgraduate thesis contest among all Uzbekistan universities in Economics. My dissertation topic is on “Formulation of Public Policies to Support Transition to Green Economy in Developing Countries (in the case of Uzbekistan)” at Urgench State University.

Moreover, thanks to the suggestions and critical feedback I received during Summer School/Jamboree, I was able to improve the quality of my research paper and presented the revised paper at the 5th Asian Energy conference (http://www.business.uwa.edu.au/iaee-2016 ) in Perth, Australia and UNESCO Conference on Technologies for Development (http://cooperation.epfl.ch/Tech4Dev/Conference-Vision) in Lausanne, Switzerland.   

In near future, I plan to do a doctorate in Economics and apply my knowledge and skills and help improve people’s lives. I will continue researching investments on green technologies jointly with my supervisor Prof. Sanaatbek Salayev (Urgench State University) and Bahtiyor Eshchanov of WIUT. My advice for writing a dissertation is that a student needs to identify real research questions and have a vision and an expertise to solve the problem. Student must be interested in his/her research topic to stay motivated and committed to produce a high-quality research output. I am sincerely grateful to WIUT for organizing events that enhance the quality of Economics research environment in Uzbekistan.
