FIA University

The FIA University is an initiative aimed at helping FIA's Mobility Clubs develop to their full potential.

About the FIA University Programmes

The FIA University is a unique initiative that can be compared to corporate universities. Unlike traditional universities, where students go to attend programmes, corporate universities are structured within companies that recognize training as a key part of what they need to do to achieve their strategic goals.

The FIA University develops global programmes of broad interest within the Federation as well as tailor-made programmes for FIA Regions such as:

  • the FIA University's Latin American Leaders Programme for Region IV
  • the FIA University Region II Club Development Programme
  • or for FIA Region 1 the ACTA Learnership Programme and the ACTAC Leading with Impact workshop,

It offers programmes in three areas:

  • Strategy and Leadership (Club Governance, Emerging Leaders Programme, Latin American Leaders Programme)
  • Public Policy and Advocacy (Strategic Lobbying)
  • Functional Expertise

The FIA University was presented for the first time in December 2011. The project grew in 2012 following Clubs’ expectations and demands and a grant from the FIA Foundation to the FIA Strategic Programmes on Road Safety and Capacity Building helped turn the project into a reality. 2013 saw the delivery of two Emerging Leaders Programmes (ELP) in Barcelona and the Strategic Lobbying Programme in The Hague, which received a great feedback from participants. The ELP has been renewed year after year since 2013. The Latin American Leaders Programme has run modules in Miami (2014), Asunción and Montevideo in 2015

The FIA University is open to all members and stakeholders within the Federation.
