Why would you recommend the École des Ponts Business School?
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.
"The MBA helped me transform myself from a purely technical thinker into an innovative business thinker.” ‘’I already had the problem-solving skills in me, but the MBA clearly added a lot of business acumen. So I was able to get out of the pure technical aspect of solving problems and add the business aspect, the business results and an entrepreneurial approach.’’
Going through the Solvay-Ponts MBA was a once in a lifetime experience for me! My batch consisted of 19 great people with 13 nationalities, the faculty is top notch - quite dynamic and hands on in the classes, and the program staff very supportive. Not only did I meet a lot of great people, I learned a lot of new ideas as well. Having gone through this program with them broadened my personal, career, and cultural perceptions. I am now working as a Regional Solutions Analyst in an international alcohol company headquartered in Paris where I combine my previous IT experience with the newly acquired business literacy. I attribute all of this to the school for giving me this excellent opportunity!
