​The Talent Management Unit is made up of three sub-units: 

Human Resources Sub-Unit (HR)

The Human Resources (HR) sub-unit receives volunteering applications and manages the database of candidates' profiles. It also works in cooperation with all of EMA's Units to provide them with suitable volunteer candidates whenever volunteering selection processes take place. This is done based on the candidates' preferences and profiles and the selection processes' requirements. As different selection processes occur throughout the year, EMA draws candidates from its unified database through the work of the HR sub-unit.


HR is also responsible for providing different support to volunteers after their hiring within EMA, like experience certificates and recommendation letters, which is very helpful in the future career prospects of the volunteers. EMA Units' Team Leaders can request such documents for their volunteers by filling out the specific request form.

The HR Coordinator leads the HR sub-unit. The current HR  Coordinator is Misheck Samakao, who can be reached at

Professional Development (PD) Sub-Unit

EMA’s PD Team takes care of arranging different professional development activities for EMA volunteers and members like monthly volunteering meetups, career development webinars and workshops.

Community Development (CD) Sub-Unit

This subunit is responsible for development activities, well-being and interaction within the EMA community.


Projects led by this sub-unit include EMA's 'Flavours of Erasmus Mundus' cookbook, containing recipes shared by Erasmus Mundus students and alumni, and EMA Day, a yearly celebration of the Erasmus Mundus Association (EMA) dedicated to gathering students and alumni in different cities all around the world.
