The architecturally exciting new home of the International University of Monaco has been officially inaugurated by H.S.H. Prince Albert II and National Council President Stéphane Valeri. After the traditional cutting of a red ribbon and the unveiling of an inaugural plaque, participants visited the 2,000 m² site, which encompasses ultra-modern and intelligently connected classrooms, meeting rooms and study spaces. Director General of the University Jean-Philippe Muller thanked Prince Albert for his support since the IUM was established in 1986. The University also acknowledged that assistance of the Department of the Interior when the idea of the IUM leaving its premises at the Stade Louis II arose almost two years ago. According to a statement from the IUM, the size of the new Stella campus will allow the university to reach its growth objective, which is 800 students within a few years, up from the current 650 students today. Jean-Philippe Muller said he is also very optimistic about the future of the IUM in the district of Condamine, saying he hoped "that the next 33 years at Stella will be as fruitful as the 33 past years at Stade Louis II." The next goal for IUM is to obtain, from 2020, the prestigious AACSB accreditation that would allow it to join the ranks of the 796 best international business schools. Top photo: accompanying H.S.H. Prince Albert II from left to right are Stéphane Valéri, president of the Conseil National, Dr Jean-Philippe Muller, General Director of IUM, and Patrice Cellario, Conseiller de Gouvernement pour l’Intérieur.

The Monaco Economic Board is the entity responsible for developing business within Monaco and internationally, and for also luring business to Monaco. Prospecting missions take them all across the globe, from Australia to Germany. But who exactly is the MEB and what type of businesses are they trying to bring to the Principality? Monaco Life sat down with Director Justin Highman to find out more about one of Monaco’s most important non-profit associations.. #businessinmonaco #doingbusinessinmonaco #Fredericgenta #guillaumerose #Justinhighman #MEB #MonacoEconomicBoard #monacolife_ #monacotrendy #monacolife #monacocelebrity #monacofood #monacosports #monacoluxury #monaconews #MonacoInvest #monacowelcomeoffice https://monacolife.net/the-meb-and-its-missions/ ...

The Monaco Economic Board (MEB) spent four days in the dynamic South Korean capital celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Franco-Korean Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FKCCI), as well as taking advantage of the visit to expand business opportunities between the two nations. Ranked 4th of the world’s largest metropolitan economies, Seoul is a true Alpha World City. With a GDP of US$635.4 billion, only Tokyo, New York and Los Angeles can top it. Monaco is poised to tap into this city’s vast economic opportunities and in anticipation of this, sent a large delegation to explore possible bilateral trade and commercial prospects. Representatives from the Monaco Economic Board were joined by members of the Sovereign Prince’s government, Visit Monaco and leaders from dozens of Monegasque-based companies, ranging from cosmetics and construction to insurance. The FKCCI, organisers of the unprecedented gathering, created a packed four day agenda including meetings with local politicians and business leaders, whose goals are to expand and establish new business and trade prospects. The visit also incorporated networking events and visits to cultural sites, allowing the Monegasques to get a feel for the city and its vibrant, energetic economy. A highlight of the trip was the Monaco-Korea Economic Forum, a meeting of 70 high level attendees whose speakers included Frédéric Genta, Monaco’s Chief Digital Officer, Guillaume Rose, the CEO of MEB, David-Pierre Jalicon, FKCCI’s President, Michel Drobniak, Economic Advisor to the French Embassy in Seoul and Kim Eun-Seok, Advisor to the Federation of Korean Industries (FKI).... #monacolife_ #monacotrendy #monacolife #monacocelebrity #monacofood #monacosports #monacoluxury #monaconews https://monacolife.net/meb-in-seoul-to-promote-business-possibilities/ ...
