A few words:

“The MBA has changed my life.  At the end of the year 2010, I decided to join the Global MBA programme and I didn’t know at that time the added-value that this experience was going to bring me.  After 15 years of work experience, I profited from my MBA and learned more about business, management, and mainly about myself.  The time was very intense as I had to carry on in my job while also completing courses, case studies and spend time with my family.  But every moment spent in the MBA was profitable and mind-opening.  Teachers and coaches are skilful and the staff was always present to help me find the most adapted solution to manage the programme, my job and my life.”

François Cordeau

Factory Director, OTV Groupe Veolia

MBA ‘10


« Civil engineer and manager with 25 years’ worth of experience in the French Navy, I wanted to gain more civil business knowledge and shipping expertise.  The Global MBA brought me to the level I wanted and the outstanding programme helped me to benefit from highly-skilled lecturers.  I confirm also that following an executive MBA alongside your job is challenging, but I got strong support from my fellow students from whom I have learned a lot during the sessions.  My experience has been very positive.  During the programme, I have gained close to 10 years of experience and feel strong enough to accept a challenging position in any business.”

Franck Magrarian

Vice-President Procurement, CMA-CGM Group

MBA ‘09

“With more than 30 affiliates and presence on 5 continents, Airbus Helicopters has placed internationalisation at the heart of its strategy.  To maintain its position as a world leader, Airbus Helicopters must be able to rely upon managers with an entrepreneurial spirit, who are curious and open to diversity, but also eager to maintain and develop both the passion and know-how of its collaborators.  The Global MBA programme is a real opportunity to develop these capacities and accompany our managers to push their boundaries.”
