The EMMIO program is the chance for mid-career officers to challenge themselves to take new steps in their careers, discover their management talent and acquire the necessary toolbox for managerial roles. To potential candidates I say: It would be a real pity bearing an unrevealed potential inside you.

Fernanda Guerrieri | Assistant Director-General, Corporate Services at FAO

In a constantly evolving and overcrowded global environment ¨reform¨ has become a buzz word and a challenging process for international organizations. EMMIO provides the academic opportunity to reflect on and to develop capacities for those who are already in managerial positions or are willing to assume those responsibilities.

"EMMIO has been a fantastic experience. I learned a lot about myself and how to deal with multiple tasks and deadlines, about how to organize and to bring out the best of myself. I gained confidence. I would recommend it as a mean to grow your knowledge and your mind, as a step to transform your professional life."
