Facility management is a fast developing discipline on the scene of business management and leadership in all kinds of organizations. It changes in response to the bigger and smaller movements in business, government and health care organizations to name some kinds of organizations that are experiencing the duty to keep pace with the growing dynamics and complexity in markets and society in general. However Facility Management is not only the disciplined follower of these changes, but in more and more situations the initiator, e.g. with respect to designing workplaces. Growing demand and expectations with respect to FM services performance draws on advanced competences in management, consultancy and research qualities.
Ifmec is already maintaining a core position in this field for a long time, standing in the middle of current developments and participating in the forefront of initiating new methods, approaches and strategies for internal and external Facilities providers and (may be even more) for the users of Facility services. Ifmec disposes of a unique pool of talented and experienced consultants, eager young professionals, seniors with extensive experience in several relevant fields, capable of filling key positions as interim managers and capable of strategic projects for the future wellbeing of organizations.
Ifmec contributes extensively to the dissemination of up to date knowledge and expertise necessary to meet current and future Facility Management challenges. Not restricted to the pure traditional subjects of FM, but also encompassing related other disciplines, like HRM, Finance, ICT, Strategy and Marketing. And not restricted to FM professionals only. Knowledge of FM is also important for HRM- or Financial experts. Ifmec offers formal training, leading to recognized (academic) diploma’s. Starting with the well-known Post-HBO program, which is the more attractive, since it opens the opportunity to continue the study and graduate as an international MSc in one year (instead of the formal two years).
For the experienced Facility professionals there is another splendid offer:: the executive MBA Enabling Management. Developed for the future Directors Business Operations. An intensive program, mixed with international experiences, and organized in such a way that it matches well in the famous triangle “study – family – work”.
