A range of innovative courses to transform yourself and your career

Executive DBA

The program is designed for experienced professionals who wish to formalize and share the knowledge and expertise gained throughout their careers. The objective here is to help program participants develop their thought leadership and legitimacy in their area of expertise while producing research material they can directly put to use in their professional practice. The program includes many unique features: 4 residential sessions, a Doctoral “project” in 3 papers, 2 “learning labs” as well as personal doctoral supervision.


Global Executive MBA

With a focus on leadership, strategy and innovation, our Global E-MBA is tailored for mid-career professionals aspiring to senior executive positions or willing to start their own business.

We have taken a bold move to completely redesign our Global Executive MBA. The program is now based on a backbone of 3 executive projects, a pedagogic revolution that helps our graduates develop their agility and radically transform themselves.  Our one-weekend-a-month format helps participants keep their professional and personal lives in balance.

Challenging conventional thinking

 Five key Research initiatives based on our vision of tomorrow’s priorities

The Circular Economy Research Center (CERC) launched for our 30th anniversary and brought EU think tanks, government officials and academics to our inaugural symposium, The Future of Business: Circular Economy.

Leveraging business and technology to serve human progress across the globe

To nurture the next generation of business leaders and forward-thinking managers, 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.

Striving for collective and individual excellence

École des Ponts ParisTech is one of the most prestigious educational institutions in Europe, with decades of experience administering internationally acclaimed Graduate porgrams. Our MBA programs are internationally accredited by AMBA. And although we warn our prospective students about the many questions raised by MBA rankings – standardization, ranking criteria and weighting, transparency, data accuracy – our programs are repeatedly ranked among the best in the world:

  • CEO Magazine: #2 worldwide (Global Executive MBA)
  • CEO Magazine: Tier 1 (Full Time MBA)
  • QS: #20 Global Joint E-MBA
  • QS: #45 in Europe (Global Executive MBA)


“École des Ponts Business School continues to excel against all CEO Magazine’s Key Performance Indicators. However, the School’s relentless pursuit of innovative management education, allied to a student-centric approach, is what keeps it at the very top of CEO Magazine’s MBA rankings. 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.”
