Malta Independent - - BUSINESS & FINANCE -

The Univer­sity of Malta’s Fac­ulty of Eco­nom­ics, Man­age­ment and Ac­coun­tancy (FEMA) launched the FEMA – Busi­ness FO­RUM re­cently. The aims are firstly to en­sure bet­ter ac­tive col­lab­o­ra­tion on var­i­ous fronts be­tween FEMA staff and in­dus­try; se­condly, to de­velop a plat­form that will en­sure that the aca­demic ef­forts of FEMA are in synch with those of in­dus­try in terms of hu­man cap­i­tal and in­dus­trial needs of the fu­ture; thirdly, to of­fer an op­por­tu­nity to stake­hold­ers ‘to share in the life’ of FEMA and its stu­dents; and fi­nally, to cre­ate an out­reach net­work plat­form be­tween the dif­fer­ent mem­bers con­sti­tut­ing the plat­form.

Dur­ing the in­au­gu­ra­tion event, which took place ear­lier this month, Pro­fes­sor Frank Bezzina, Dean, Fac­ulty of Eco­nom­ics, Man­age­ment and Ac­coun­tancy it­er­ated that the FO­RUM was a means to en­sure that the pro­grammes and the re­search con­ducted by FEMA re­mained rel­e­vant. Other speak­ers at the event were Pro­fes­sor Tanya Sam­mut-Bon­nici, Pro Rector, Strate­gic Plan­ning and En­ter­prise, and Shaun Cas­sar from ASCS (FEMA’s Stu­dent As­so­ci­a­tion).

The FO­RUM was co-or­di­nated by a work­ing com­mit­tee com­posed of Dr Vin­cent Cas­sar, Dr Mar­cus Schuetz, Pro­fes­sor Joseph Fal­zon, Peter J. Bal­dacchino, Dr Simon Grima, Dr Nathaniel Massa, Miriam Po­cock and two rep­re­sen­ta­tives from ASCS.
