“Besides the fundamental courses for an executive leader (such as strategy and finance), the Executive MBA will remain a unique experience for two main reasons. First, for the richness of cross-cultural exchanges on the itinerant track: this is a very innovative formula thanks to the participants’ diversity, valuable teachers and the stimulating learning environments. It is a real window opened to the world. Second, for the opportunity to work on ourselves and become executive leaders. This point was particularly useful for me to prepare for new career possibilities.”
The first day one of the professor told us: “Not all of you will become CEO, but each of you will have the chance to develop him/herself as a human”. Indeed, ESCP Europe has a unique humanistic approach that goes behind lectures and seminars, focusing on cultural diversities, experiences and soft skills.
Being French, I am well aware of the great ESCP Europe reputation. Thus I am very happy to not have been disappointed: here I can meet people from many different industries and sectors, I have the opportunity to work on management, business and leadership competences as well as enjoy a great team spirit.
I worked on the business plan for the Women’s Worldwide Web within the frame of the International Consulting Project. The ICP was an ideal opportunity to work on setting up this online philanthropy platform dedicated to women’s empowerment. In 2014, I was nominated for the ‘Women in ICT Role Model’ prize by the Digital Agenda of the European Commission. My career has taken a quantum leap thanks to the ESCP Europe Executive MBA. It enabled me to develop self-confidence and a sense of the possibilities of management and leadership to embrace this ambitious social venture.

After working as an R&D engineer for 15 years, I wanted to increase my business exposure, particularly in the area of sales and business development.
My classmates had positions similar to the one I wanted and came form different industry sectors. The Executive MBA was the door-opener that allowed me to make my career change.
