Globe Postal Service (GPS), a private postal operator which products are available in Italy in more than 2000 points of sale, is now also in France (French Riviera) and Corsica.
Founded in 2013 by Cristiana Di Grazia and Stefano Paniconi, GPS has been the first private postal operator to introduce a new postal sticker in Italy, an alternative choice to the
traditional stamp issued by Poste Italiane, initially valid only for sending tourist postcards in Italy and all over the world.

This process has been made innovative by a qr-code printed on each sticker, which allows the sender to trace the postcard and attach a video that can only be viewed by the addressee. As incentive to sponsorship the tourism in Italy, the GPS stickers are dedicated to the Italian cities where they are sold, through the representation of the most traditional images of the territory. Furthermore, inside of each point of sale, the company has always set a yellow mail box that, still today, identifies the GPS brand!
In six years of activity the company set over 2.000 mail boxes in Italy, making GPS the most diffused private network of mail boxes, the only alternative to the traditional Italian postal service.
And now the GPS network also collect traditional and registered postal mail!

Confirmed the brand in Italy, GPS has exported its postal service in France, another Nations with high rate of tourism.
An important strategic planning work, and a productive relationship with the French Authorities (Arcep) and some French commercial partners (also La Poste), gave to GPS and to the Italian postal market an incredible success: Globe Postal Service became one of the 49 authorized Postal Companies from Arcep to operate in French postal market but, most of all, is the first and only Italian private company with a French postal license. GPS will export its business model to France with just one difference: the yellow mail boxes becomes orange only in the French market!

Right now GPS is looking to expansion its services to other European Countries, activity that will be conducted also in partnership with International Careers.
Meantime in GPS galaxy has landed the PEM app - pick the emotion: download it on your smartphones and you can send a real postcard, all over the world, and directly to destination, by using a photo from the gallery of the phone or a just taken selfie!

International Master in European Studies: come to Brussels to become EU Policy Advisor or EU Project Manager


The International Master in European Studies is organised jointly by the European Desk of the Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce and the Institute of European Studies of the Catholic University of Louvain to prepare students to work as EU Policy Advisor and Project Manager.

This intensive Master is organized in a 3-month schedule, enabling students to gain specific competencies and skills in a short period of time. Students will have the possibility to gain knowledge on the European Union institutional structure, functioning and policies, as well as get knowledge about EU funding methods and Project Cycle Management. The Master teaching methodology is a practice-oriented approach, which aims at transferring knowledge through a learning-by-doing process. A limited number of 30 students are admitted to the Master: they are from different countries and diverse educational backgrounds.

The Master’s programme is composed of three sections:

In the first section, the topic of the European construction is analysed from the historical, juridical and economic points of view. The main European policies, strategies and monetary agreements are here examined. This is the basis of the theoretical knowledge needed for Lobbying and Project Management.

The second section focuses on learning the mechanisms, tools and criteria for designing and managing successful EU-funded projects and tenders. The student learns through a learning-by-doing approach, with the support of case studies and interactive workshops. The lessons and the practical activities are held by professional EU Advisors, who have years of experience in planning, advising and providing technical assistance to SMEs, NGOs, think-tanks, public entities, and international organizations.

In the third section, several seminars at the European institutions are organized in order to meet EU officers and to have a direct contact with professionals. This section aims also to provide students with a wide vision of the different realities operating on the Brussels area in the European field.

The Job Link module is one of the master’s strengths: it is a good start for the entrance in the Brussels job market. It provides the support to students in further developing their career path by a seminar and the one-to-one meetings with a recruiter. The CV of the students will be included in a CV Book which is sent to various organizations and companies in Brussels. If students find an internship, the BICC will support them with the drafting of the contract and offering the trainee insurance


Deadline for the application: 17th August 2018


Duration: From 17th September to 13th December 2018
