READY TO MOVE FORWARD?
As traditional HR tools are becoming obsolete, how can talent be identified, recruited, nurtured, trained and retained?
École des Ponts Business School’s focus on Leadership & Management tries to answer this question and further the scholarship on coaching, executive succession, leadership transition in nonprofit organizations, the politics of family businesses, and managing change and diverse teams.
We want that the outcome of our faculty research to be added to the extensive literature that exists and to create currency of research in this field
Professor Joseph Santora is one of our lead researchers and a prolific writer on the topic.
The main focuses of his research delves into leadership and governance and one particular stream of research is devoted to educating top leadership about best practices related to executive succession and transition in non-profit and family businesses and organizations.
Connected to this research is a focus on executive coaching and leadership as well as the ways executives can become more effective in leading complex organizations in highly competitive environments.
I was really convinced that the Global Executive MBA from École des Ponts was the best education I could get. It is one of the top three leading engineering schools in France, known on a worldwide basis and I was fully confident that doing an MBA at École des Ponts would create the right momentum to move up in my career.
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.
