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.

“I chose the MBA because of its world-class faculty and highly diversified student profiles, and the fact that it is an engineering school-backed program. The technological management and innovation aspect is unique in the world. I saw it as a great opportunity to widen my knowledge and prepare myself for a leap forward in my career.”
THE BEST OPTION FOR MOVING UP
AN EXECUTIVE MBA TO THINK GLOBALLY
Shailesh Dixit (India), Associate Head Sales, Presales & Solutions, TCS- France
“The most unique thing about the MBA course is you get the complete spectrum, it’s not a specialized course where you become an expert on a particular target. It gives you a very holistic approach and view, from entrepreneurship to innovation and tech management. You will transcend traditional business thinking.”
THE WORLD AS YOUR CLASSROOM
THINK LIKE AN ENTREPRENEUR
Victoria Férauge – USA – Former CIO Brink’s France
“For years I had been dreaming of returning to school and getting an MBA. My background is in Information Systems Management and after many years in the business in the U.S., Japan and France I went looking for a program that would broaden my knowledge and skills and allow me to explore other career opportunities.
I found exactly what I was looking for at ENPC. Not only was I able to acquire the broader management skills to realize my ambitions, I also had the enormous pleasure of learning from world class professors and studying with students from all corners of the globe.”
Jean CARON – France – PSA Peugeot Citroën
“Après un plus de 5 ans d’expatriation pour la Banque PSA Finance, j’ai rejoint, il y a trois ans, la « Division Groupe Moto-propulseur » du groupe PSA Peugeot Citroën comme Responsable de réduction des coûts et de global sourcing.
J’envisageais déjà depuis quelque temps faire un MBA, sans pour autant interrompre ma carrière.
Diplômé de l’Ecole des Ponts (Civ. 90), je connaissais la réputation du corps professoral de l’école de management et la qualité des programmes qui y sont proposés. Mon évolution professionnelle se construisant dans le cadre de l’internationalisation de PSA Peugeot Citroën, je me suis tourné vers l’Executive MBA de l’Ecole des Ponts ; décision appuyée par mon employeur.
Le rythme de la formation est très soutenu et il faut en plus concilier études et vie professionnelle, mais ces 22 mois de cours ont été vraiment très enrichissants. L’investissement personnel important est récompensé par de nouvelles perspectives de carrière. Je ne pourrai que conseiller, lorsqu’on en a l’opportunité, de se lancer dans cette formation. Elle permet de construire des repères professionnels robustes pour les années de changements qui se profilent dans le monde des affaires.”
Xavier Zakoian – France – Revenue Management Director, NRJ Group
“After acquiring 15 years of professional experience, I still strongly felt that I should broaden my knowledge in essential fields such as Corporate Strategy, Finance, and Marketing. I also wanted to acquire a number of tools and methodologies that would enhance my previous professional experience and prepare me for more challenging opportunities in the coming years.
I chose the ENPC Executive MBA program for the extraordinarily high quality of its educational program and outstanding professors as well as for its unique international and multicultural approach.
I am happy to say that over the past 7 months, my expectations have been more than met. The ENPC Executive MBA program has already enabled me to move to a higher level of professional knowledge and executive skills and is providing me with an enriching and challenging educational experience.”
