OUR ALUMNI TESTIMONIALS

The Participants

Chiara Gasparotto

DIRECTOR POLICY AND PARTNERSHIP, ESTRO

"I grew within the organisation I work for, and I have been given the great responsibility and pleasure to become the director of one of our units. The EMIAM definitely gave me the vocabulary and principles I needed.

It changed my job and my vision on it, helping me to better work on the creation of value and the engagement of volunteers."

Jan Lichota

MANAGER ASSOCIATION BUREAU, VISIT.BRUSSELS

"The EMIAM programme helps us to acquire vital in-association governance tools. From member management and the judicial landscape through to the latest HR trends, the training offered gives you a full overview of the most recent shifts in the association sector, the position currently assumed by communication, the part played by psychology within the organisation, and the complications created by often conflicting interests.

The programme also underlines the importance of leaders in such a set-up. For relatively inexperienced association leaders or those hailing from the corporate world, the EMIAM provides a one-off chance to update their knowledge of the area."

Raquel Izquierdo de Santiago

SECRETARY GENERAL, EUROPATAT

"After almost 3 years in a managerial position within an association, I was looking to learn something new but also gather feedback on my way of working and identify ways of doing things better. The EMIAM programme provided the perfect fit with my professional situation. Our association is relatively small in size and I am involved in a large number of projects therein, from governance to finance, as well as event organisation. The programme successfully covers all these bases in a truly comprehensive manner."

CONGRESS OPERATIONS SENIOR MANAGER,  ECCO

"This Master offers a unique combination of theoretical concepts widely supported by practical case studies. The Solvay professors bring their invaluable insight (and sense of humour), and join forces with association experts.

Together, they cover all key elements of international association management, and help you bring this deep strategic knowledge to the practical field."
