The city poem ‘een minimum’, written by Ramsey Nasr and since 2005 displayed on the façade of the former OCMW building at Mechelseplein square, had disappeared for about a year, as the building is currently undergoing a change of use to become the beautiful new home of Antwerp Management School (AMS) as of August 27, 2018. This caused quite a stir.
Since September 2016, Antwerp Management School has been busy rebuilding the former CPA buildings on the Mechelseplein. The right-hand section, at Lange-Gasthuisstraat, is being kept in its original form. The left-hand section is being newly built and the architecture will echo the rhythm of the adjacent historic building. The new building will reflect AMS’s open-house philosophy.
How to keep different generations motivated on the shop floor has been a burning issue in both theory and practice for a long time. In particular, set against the backdrop of lengthening careers, research into the conditions under which we can achieve our full potential throughout a lifelong career has become a pressing issue.
At Antwerp Management School (AMS), tradition and experience go hand in hand with innovation and performance. For this reason, AMS has been focusing for decades on a specific offering to the public sector. The cornerstone of this offering is the Master’s Degree in Public Management.
At the end of the academic year, our graduates are not the only people whose performance we will appreciate. We also look back at the achievements of our faculty and recognize the best, with two awards of distinction.
