The strengthening of small and medium-sized companies (SMEs or PyMEs in Spanish) in COVID-19’s pandemic is fundamental for continuing with the economical development of the country.
That is why, on April 27st began the eleventh edition of the Business Development and Innovation Program for the Value Chain, organized by Ternium and the EGADE Business School of the Monterrey Institute of Technology.
This will be the second online edition due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This program started in 2006 and its objective is to train PyMEs executives in subjects of business, marketing, Industry 4.0, human resources, finances, and innovations, among others.
During the opening ceremony, César Jiménez (CEO) highlighted the importance of creating synergies within the government, schools, and the private sector to help PyMEs through the current challenges of the market.
“We launched this program with the objective of achieving a better competence with a focus on efficiency, enhancing the productive investment, boosting and strengthening the exportation capacity,” he said.
In the previous 10 editions of this program, 574 executives from 435 different companies from 25 states have been trained.
We got a total of 828 hours of executive training and more than 80 lectures imparted that inspired 200 projects related to positioning and developing new businesses.
In this edition, the training will take 84 hours for 55 executives that are participating in this program, which will be imparted by 14 professors of the EGADE Business School.
Osmar Zavaleta, EGADE Business School’s Sub-Dean, acknowledged the leadership and relevance of Ternium within its industry, as well as their leadership and vision in creating this program.
On the other hand, Roberto Russildi, Secretary of Economy and Work of Nuevo León, highlighted the impact that this program has in the development of the country. “If we had more companies like Ternium, that make projects and training programs like this one with the EGADE, the development of the value chain in Mexico would be higher.”
This certification is another action that Ternium made within the Propymes program that has boosted more than 880 companies of diverse areas like construction, manufacture, automotive, home appliances, transport, and metallurgy.
