The EFMD provides a unique forum for networking, research, innovation and sharing best practices for leadership development. The organization has nearly 700 member institutions, companies or public sector actors.

Because we are a member we can now apply for EPAS accreditation.” says Asta Wahlgren, Director of the Business and Service Management Unit.

Membership was officially confirmed during the organization’s annual general meeting in Brussels on 06.06.2011. JAMK is the first Finnish University of Applied Sciences to become an approved member. Membership requires the recommendation of two current EFMD members.
