@Audencia Executive Education continues to expand internationally and is now available in three African countries. The Executive MBA programme, already offered at the Algerian business school ESAA (Ecole Supérieure Algérienne des Affaires), will be available in March 2021 in Senegal at SUPDECO Dakar, and in Morocco at Euromed Business School in Fez. This programme is also taught at Audencia’s main Atlantic Campus in Nantes.

Audencia continues its international development by strengthening its presence in Africa with two new partnerships: in Senegal with SUPDECO Dakar and in Morocco with Euromed Business School in Fez. The Executive MBA course, which is currently on offer at Audencia’s Atlantic Campus in Nantes and in Algeria at ESAA, is AMBA accredited. The schools are committed to deploying this programme according to international accreditation standards (EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA).

At SUPDECO Dakar, Senegal's first business school, the Audencia Executive MBA programme will start in March 2021 with thirty participants. The programme is aimed at senior executives, general managers and senior executives, mainly French-speaking African nationals or managers based in Senegal. Candidates must have over eight years of professional experience and a Bachelor or Master degree. Classes will be taught at SUPDECO’s campus by professors from both Audencia and SUPDECO. Students will also do a study trip to Audencia’s Atlantic Campus in Nantes. The partnership also includes research collaboration, and student and faculty exchanges.

Dakar is both a gateway to West Africa, and Senegal’s economic epicentre. The partnership will allow Audencia to create an ecosystem of excellence with SUPDECO Dakar for students and businesses. Audencia’s alliances-based strategy has underpinned the school’s development for over twenty years and has created a virtuous circle of exchanges with partnering organisations around the world (Shenzhen, Beijing, Chengdu, Vendée, MEDIACAMPUS, Paris, Nantes, etc…). For example, SUPDECO Dakar now offers a Bachelor in Agribusiness, also an important theme for Audencia, thus strengthening the proximity between the two schools. Indeed, in late 2018, Audencia co-founded the Collaborative Institute for Global Agribusiness with the following South American and African partners: Brazilian Association of Agribusinesses (ABAG), ESPAE Graduate School of Management in Ecuador, the consulting company TCAI, Tejon Communication & Action International Ltda in Brazil, USIU Africa and the University of Ghana.

In Morocco, companies particularly value managers who can develop, anticipate, and reinvent individual and collective skills in order to respond to the new challenges linked to significant economic shifts in the region. The missions of Audencia and the Euromed Business School are perfectly aligned to this. The two schools aim to nurture talent, bring about change and create sustainable performance.

The Audencia Executive MBA programme is aimed at senior executives, high potential executives, and experienced entrepreneurs with over eight years of professional experience and a Bachelor or Master degree. The programme will be taught from November 2020 at Euromed University’s Fez-Casablanca campus by professors from both schools. The objective of the programme is to train innovative leaders with a disruptive approach in order to identify differentiating growth drivers. The course allows students to explore different fields of management in order to build a systemic vision of companies, but also to explore specific themes arising from new business challenges.

This programme is a career accelerator that allows students to develop their leadership skills and to better understand the challenges of companies’ digital, ecological, and business model transformations. During their training, the thirty or so participants will go on a learning trip to one of Audencia's campuses in France or China.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
