‘Education’ and ‘communication’ are the two watchwords of our second FEDEMAG!
‘Education’ is our shared motivation and passion. The official recognition of the FEDE’s degrees and professional certificates is one of my key priorities, and I would like to share with you my heartfelt pleasure at the latest six official validations we have secured. Among the newly recognised qualifications is the European Bachelor’s in Marketing (formerly DEESMA) – a degree whose official recognition we had sought for some time and are delighted to have obtained (page2). Developing curricula to meet the needs of our institutions, developing our course catalogue and identifying the needs of the ever-evolving job market – all of this constitutes, in my view, one of the FEDE’s chief missions. On page 5 you can see for yourselves how our course catalogue has blossomed into an offering of 140 degrees in 12 elite subject areas.
As for ‘communication’, much has been done to attract new students and to help your institutions grow and flourish: updates to our website’s ‘member’s area’ – our online communications platform (page 11), newly designed degree and professional qualification certificates (page 6), and the development of our new ‘degree information sheets’, specially designed for our institutions, with a space reserved for your logos (page 11). Happy reading! And with this issue I conclude my four-year mandate as your elected FEDE Chairwoman. On the 27, 28 and 29 March, our network will be meeting for its General Assembly in Malaga. During the GA we will elect new leaders who, in close and positive collaboration with our talented General Delegate Maxime Gioannini, will be responsible for the ongoing development of our Federation.
