A pioneering curriculum based on a backbone of 3 Executive Projects
At École des Ponts Business School, we consider that innovating in the classroom is crucial to adjust to the complexities of the digital age. The Global Executive MBA program is now “project-based”. It means that the backbone to the entire program are three 6-month projects where you will be confronted with real-life business challenges while serving your own career objectives:
The Personal Leadership Development Project
The Strategic Development Project
The Innovation Development Project
Each E-MBA course further adds to the business and management skill-set necessary to succeed in these real-world projects. Our courses combine MBA case-study and problem-based learning with group work and online pedagogical resources. For each course, the professor will provide some feedback on your final assignment, designed as a direct contribution to the project you are currently completing.
Over the course of the three terms – Leading People & Teams, Leading Business Performance and Leading Innovation & Agility – you will gain first-hand knowledge, understanding and experience. You will also develop an agile and innovative mindset you will apply to business, management and leadership all through your career. This aptitude will definitely make a difference when you are facing a shifting environment or a new challenge.

Why would you recommend the Exec. MBA of the École des Ponts?
What are some of your unexpected MBA takeaways?
How did you mange your work-life-studies balance?
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.
