Abela Fitzpatrick re-elected MIM President

In the first meeting of the newly elected Council, Joe Abela Fitzpatrick was unanimously confirmed as MIM President through a secret ballot. The re-election marks Mr Abela Fitzpatrick’s 10th year as President of the Institute – 1985-6, 1989-93, 2000-2 – evidence of his relentless determination and continued commitment toward the Institute, its members, and the management profession.

The new Council is composed of Joe Abela Fitzpatrick – President Joe Zammit - Vice President, George Papagiorcopulo - Honorary Secretary, Laurence Mizzi - Treasurer, Claude JM Galea - Public Relations Officer, Claudine Cassar, Michael Ciavola, Romain Galea, Lino Micallef Borg and Josie Pace are members of the Council.

Addressing Council’s first meeting, Mr Abela Fitzpatrick thanked all Council members for their hard work, commitment and support, stating that the past year has been a very intensive and successful one for the Institute. In line with MIM’s mission statement – "To enhance the profession of management in Malta within a broad international framework, focusing on the competence and effectiveness of managers", a number of initiatives took off to a jump-start, and shall continue to be supported during the current year. These include the very successful professional Management Development Courses being delivered in collaboration with the Maastricht School of Management, including Diploma, Masters and Doctorate in Business Administration, various bridging programmes, specialised short courses, seminars and business breakfasts.

The international dimension has been nurtured further through executive posts on the Council of the European Management Association, where a number of MIM’s initiatives have been taken up and implemented. The Institute also registered significant progress on the Regional MBA programme being developed in conjunction with the Maastricht School of Management. Through this initiative, managers from the Mediterranean region shall have the opportunity to follow internationally recognised management programmes, similar to those currently being delivered at the Malta Institute of Management.

Above all, this year shall also be focusing on strengthening services offered to members, where additional staff shall be taken aboard specifically for this purpose.
