Welcome to the Professional Master for Executive Assistants online learning program. We are excited to meet you.
The creation of this global program has been (and continues to be) a collaborative effort in between Företagsuniversitetet (The Business University of Sweden), Adam Fidler Academy and IMA – International Management Assistants. Alongside a renowned collection of experts, professors, thought-leaders, industry professionals, and colleagues from around the world.
The Professional Master for Executive Assistants is a digital learning program. This means that you log in and learn whenever you want, from whatever location suitable to you, and from any screen. The program is designed to be experienced in blocks of 6 hours per week, for 10 weeks but we know that no two weeks look the same for an Executive Assistant; as a participant, you, therefore, have full access to all course content for 12 months and you set your own learning schedule.
In video lectures, webinars, podcasts, editorials, interactive learning channels, assessments and manually graded assignments you gain a tangible Professional Master for Executive Assistants certification alongside colleagues from around the world.
Content developers for this program have worked closely with current Executive Assistants, via a reference group of IMA Members and Leaders, to ensure the methods, strategies and practical application taught in this programme is true to the day-to-day best practice of high-performing Executive Assistants.
The curriculum of this program is being continuously developed to remain ever-relevant in its ambition to ‘future-proof’ your career in a real and practical way. With IMA – International Management Assistants, being a partner of this program, all content developers have enjoyed the benefit of being able to regularly ‘reality check’ any science, theory, methodology, strategy, editorial angle or similar, against the real day-to-day operations of current Executive Assistants from around the world. Via a reference group of IMA members and leaders.
If you have any questions in regards to this online learning program, if you cannot find what you are looking for, have valuable feedback, think we might have missed something – or just want to say hi – we are right here, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll see you on the course!
