Alumni

Alumni Feedback:

In our efforts to shape the MEPA community and improve the curriculum alignment, an update of the curriculum has been launched this year, using some of the suggestions sent by the Alumni, various experts, and MEPA partners. The objectives included among others: focusing our efforts on discussing topical issues and innovative solutions in the new updated curriculum. Nevertheless, the above-mentioned objectives held a second interest that we had, which was to create and preserve a MEPA community that might strengthen relationships and improve careers on the long run. Thus, we have created a Facebook group for the Alumni which can be easily accessed through our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/MEPA.SSSA, and we have launched an Alumni survey. Moreover, some of our MEPA graduates have opted to express their opinion and feedback about the MEPA program via video recordings.
