Twenty young professionals graduated from Course 11 of the ECG Academy and were awarded the prestigious Certificate in Automobile Logistics Management at the ECG Spring Congress & General Assembly on 18th May in Malta.
They now join the ranks of more than 200 Academy Alumni who have achieved this. The ECG Academy was developed in response to demand for specialist training for middle managers working in the finished vehicle logistics sector. The course is fully accredited and is unique in the industry. The Certificate is an essential qualification for young managers in the sector and allows them to deliver the highest possible standard of services to their customers.
The course takes place over five modules and at least 24 days with a combination of intensive practice oriented training and classroom work. These modules are held at different locations around Europe to give the participants insight into the practical realities of the different elements that make up vehicle logistics, as well as the regional variations across Europe. The lectures are given by a combination of academic staff from various universities across Europe, as well as senior practising logistics professionals and suppliers from the sector. The outcome is therefore an excellent, balanced combination of theoretical training in logistics disciplines and practical examples from the sector.
The course was originally designed and run by the Executive Education arm of the European Business School and today it is managed under contract to ECG by the Education Unit of KPMG.
Each year one student receives the distinction of being awarded the Giovanni Paci award for Best Student. This year the honour went to Simone Mullazzani of the Grimaldi Group, seen above receiving the award from Costantino Baldissara of Grimaldi Group.
Registrations for Course 12 of the Academy are now open and the course will begin at the ECG Annual Conference in October in Brussels, BE.
