Personal development is a core value of the MAA. The Training & Development (T&D) committee organizes a number of training sessions and workshops throughout the year to prepare students for their professional business life. Potential themes for the workshops are personal branding, resume training or Photoshop. It is up to the committee which theme fits best for the time of year. This committee also organizes position-specific training sessions for active members to help them get the most out of the year. This year we aim for 20% soft skill trainings and 80% hard skill trainings. This implies that we focus on practicalities such as e-assessment trainings but also on for instace personal development trainings such as a Business Model You training given last October.
The committee consists of:
- The Chairman, the responsible one to make sure that the committee members do their jobs and guide them where needed. The Chairman leads the meetings and is the person of trust for the committee.
- The Secretary, this person does all the administrative work for the committee. She is the communication point for the participants at the training. Meaning sending confirmation e-mails, making sure everyone has the right information at the right time and she notulates during meetings.
- The Sales person, making sure there are companies to give trainings is the task of the Sales person. He calls companies to ask whether they want to give a training for the MAA.
- The Marketeer, it’s nice that we offer trainings, but ofcourse our members need to be aware of the trainings as well. The Marketeer gets creative in online and offline marketing to make students aware of our trainings and to apply.
