Through a unique value chain, that encompasses teaching, coaching, incubation and acceleration, this specialisation allows each participant to think, design, test and launch an entrepreneurial project in a global context on six innovative territories on four continents, benefiting from the best of each local ecosystem. Entrepreneurship is the art of recognition and exploitation of opportunities. This is valuable within organisations as well as in the establishment of new ventures.
SPECIALISATION IN PROJECT AND PROGRAMME MANAGEMENT
This specialisation is devoted to new approaches to management and leadership. It develops participants’ analytical skills as well as their sense of initiative and the agile mindset essential for leading project-based organisations. Managers in such organisations have to think in terms of results-based performance. They must create an environment that nurtures continuously successful projects. This requires exemplary piloting of costs, effective project governance and management of risks resulting in new potentially profitable opportunities. The success of such organisations lies in their capacity to respond to – or even to go beyond – clients’ expectations on all projects undertaken on their behalf.
