Joe Tanti

Malta Business Bureau (MBB) CEO Joe Tanti has highlighted how academic institutions need to move away from the traditional education model in order to incorporate work life more in students’ studies.

He was speaking during Central Mediterranean Business School’s (CMBS) Business Breakfast Meeting held last month, which addressed the various challenges businesses are facing when it comes to finding talent. Mr Tanti, together with Nectar Head of HR Mark Bugeja shared their insights into the situation as panellists.

“The traditional education model is not fit for purpose in today’s business environment,” Mr Tanti said.

“We need to keep reinventing the future of work and the role of education in shaping it,” he continued.

He added: “I am delighted to see that CMBS is continuously looking for new approaches to boost industry-academic collaboration, particularly the Sites of Learning initiative – put simply, taking education directly to the workplace.”

Mr Bugeja expressed his thoughts about why a career in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) is an “excellent choice”, as it offers “abundant opportunities to work with renowned brands, acquire valuable learning experiences, and enjoy competitive remuneration packages”.

He also noted how bespoke qualifications are helping employees at Nectar “bridge the gap” to be professionals in the industry.
