  • “After spending close to 15 years within innovation and research developing deep expertise in European research policies I considered as a necessity to broader my competencies. I chose an EMBA programme to get all the most updated tools and methodologies to be applied within a business environment. The ICN Executive MBA programme perfectly matched my expectation by offering a 360° view of the current challenges faced by companies. I got the first outcomes a few months after starting the programme, with many new jobs opportunities and a nomination as a Director within my organisation. As responsible of Start-ups development and medium sized companies performance I am pleased to apply new acquired knowledge for the benefit of my teams and my clients”

  • “I have joined Arcelormittal 10 years ago as Research Engineer in Product development and then Process improvement for Automotive, Industry and Packaging applications. Today, with my deep involvement in research and development for steel manufacturing, I feel the clear need to think more global for business, keeping innovation in the middle. The ICN Executive MBA programme is very well designed combining Business, Strategy and Innovation to satisfy my goals in upgrading my Leadership and Management skills. My current position in multicultural environment will allow me to apply and learn efficiently facing real cases studies. I am already confident in what the ICN EMBA will bring to me as job opportunities within my organization.”

  • “At 47, I have a quite large professional experience, thanks to the possibilities that exist in my group.
    I conducted several projects, organising co-working between different types of actors, dealing with our partners, and developed real management skills, thanks to my experience in managing commercial, rather industrial, and at the last time, manager teams.
    Now I’m at the starting point of the second part of my professional life. So the question is: « How can I improve my employability and guarantee added-value to the teams I’m managing? How can I get other skills to stick to the world we are living in, including expectation of new generations of co-workers, new technologies…? »
    The Executive- MBA is a good way I think to help this adaptation by enforcing a 360° point of view of the business in its environment, including financial considerations but also enforcing the capacity to be creative and to manage creative teams. It also brings us another point of view on intercultural business relations… and these are just some examples.
    The last but not the less important reason I chose this e-MBA is, that it gives us the precious opportunity to confront experiences by meeting people from very different backgrounds, and to gain from each other’s experience in our group works.”
