WHAT STUDENTS SAY
Of course the professors are fabulous, both in their experience & teaching methods but what really makes this MBA program unique is the cohort… diverse in nationality & experience and thirsty for knowledge. I will say that while this mix of diverse cultures, personalities, experiences and motivations made working in groups challenging, I came out so much stronger by getting through it. This was an unexpected aspect of learning... building my personal confidence in a big way which is certainly the reason I was able to take the leap and start my own company.
Three months into the program, I was promoted to project manager within my previous company, the Capgemini Group. The program also helped me find my new assignment with Metanext at Société Générale. Furthermore, the E-MBA degree has improved many of my skills.
What’s most special about the Global Executive MBA is that it gives you a holistic view on business on top of being an expert. In my opinion, the business plan development course is one of the most important courses in the MBA program. It gives you a ‘ready-to-go’ kit if you’re planning to launch your own company. And even if you’re not planning to be an entrepreneur it is a great tool and asset to have for your internal and external customers and your investors.
