Innovation Management to lead in a fast-changing world

To nurture the next generation of business leaders and forward-thinking managers, the École des Ponts Business School has been offering MBA programs since 1987. Inspired by our late founder, Celia Russo, we strongly believe that a business school’s responsibility is to create ethical managers and leaders. Men and women who can think creatively and critically about how to design new businesses – or improve existing ones – and in the process, help to make the world a better place.

Graduates as well as partnering companies acclaim the unique vision that inspires our programs. Although most business schools have assimilated the impact of globalization in the corporate world, they seldom teach how new technologies and innovation management can bring a sustainable competitive advantage, enhance business efficiency, and help develop successful strategies.

An Unparalleled Learning Experience

Our goal is to provide you a unique experience that will not only boost your  career bust also have a major impact on your personal development. You will enjoy a dynamic learning environment composed of interactive classes, case studies, workshops, international study trips and business simulations. In line with our tradition of academic excellence, we consistently “push the envelop” on teaching methods, innovative program content, and pedagogical design.

As you may know, an MBA program is as much about learning from your professors as learning from your peers. In our typical program you will mix with 30 fellow participants from more than 15 different nationalities, a whole set of diverse backgrounds. In class, during networking activities and with your coach, you will be urged to cultivate your emotional intelligence, analyze the impact you are making in cross-cultural or trans-disciplinary contexts and, ultimately, develop your personal leadership style.

Top faculty from around the world

Because business is international and management is cross-cultural, the École des Ponts Business School has always emphasized a global approach to teaching. Our professors come from first-class universities and business schools from different parts of the globe to teach in our programs, either in Paris or in Asia and Africa. What’s more, we invite faculty members who are not only renowned for their cutting-edge research, but also repeatedly demonstrate their passion for teaching.

You will study with professors who are truly diverse in terms of their cultural, geographic and business perspectives and are committed to the highest academic standards. You will benefit from the most up-to-date and relevant academic concepts as well as their real-world applications in different business and cultural environments. Expect to get fresh viewpoints and specialized skills you can immediately put to good use!

A seal of excellence

Accredited by the Association of MBAs

The École des Ponts ParisTech is one of the most prestigious educational institutions in Europe, with decades of experience administering internationally acclaimed Graduate porgrams.

The hard data gleaned from our continued analysis and assessment of École des Ponts Business School’s MBA offering is further supported by the excellent feedback from students and alumni, making for a consistently robust ranking.

Leveraging alumni networks across five continents

Creating value for our graduates is the number one reason why three prestigious schools have decided to jointly deliver this Global Executive MBA. As business is increasingly global, as company ownership often changes over time, as relocating and extensively travelling is part of the executive life, we know that a globally-recognized postgraduate degree is a tremendous asset in the corporate world.

By joining the Global Executive MBA program, you will join a worldwide network over 75,000 members strong, including 4 CEOs of Fortune 500 companies – and an extended network of 450,000+ ParisTech (Paris Institute of Technology), and Temple University alumni.

Beyond the numbers, what really makes a difference is the feeling of belonging to a special group that shares the same values and ambition to impact the business world of tomorrow. This is why we regularly organize worldwide alumni meetings like the one held in Marrakech in May 2015, where 500 delegates from all corners of the globe came together to discuss sustainability, CSR, leading change, and how to do well in business while doing good for society.

The world is your campus

The École des Ponts Business School offers programs in Paris, Casablanca, Shanghai and Beijing. We are part of an international network of business schools with exchange opportunities in the US, Colombia, Japan, Vietnam and many other countries.

Our MBA and E-MBA participants are invited to join our international study trips organized yearly to Shanghai and the Silicon Valley. They include a mix of lectures, meetings with high-profile guest speakers and, most importantly, visits to local and international companies. Participants report that study trips are unique opportunities to apply and further develop their Executive MBA skills; they also inspire new business ideas and help them establish connections with local alumni and prospective partners. Naturally, the study trip to the Silicon Valley is dedicated to innovation, entrepreneurship and venture creation while the study trip to Shanghai has a focus on global business, emerging markets and cross-cultural management.
