Supporting executives in the management of corporate transitions

A generalist programme delivered in English for experienced executives (8 years of professional experience on average), KEDGE Business School's Global Executive MBA delivers a degree in business administration for high-potential executives, regardless of their sector of activity.

Qualified training that understands the challenges faced by organisations

The pedagogical approach of KEDGE's Global Executive MBA has been revised to train leaders capable of leading transformation projects related to the ecological, energy, societal and digital transition of companies.
In order to understand and manage these transitions, the programme is built around 4 blocks of skills:

  • Leading the digital and sustainable transition
  • Transforming the value chain to increase efficiency
  • Decision-making in times of resilience and rising geopolitical risks
  • Managing as an intelligent leader

A change of management

In a context of change, the KEDGE MBA management team is being strengthened with the arrival of Stéphane Ouvrard, Professor of Finance at KEDGE Business School, who will take over the management of the Global Executive MBA taught in France from September 2023. As a chartered accountant, he has spent 15 years of his professional career in auditing, management control and as a partner in a chartered accountancy firm. Stéphane Ouvrard holds a PhD in management science and a post-graduate diploma (HDR). For more than 10 years, he has led executive education sessions in corporate finance in France and abroad on behalf of SMEs and international groups. For the past 2 years, he has specialised in sustainable finance and accounting.

A programme focused on sustainable business management

KEDGE actively participates in the movement to decarbonise corporate business models by aligning all its teaching with the perspective of sustainability. Within the programme, the sustainable dimension is expressed in the educational content offered, the way the programme operates, and the behaviour expected of our trained students.
The EMBA aims to train managers to run sustainable organisations. The programme incorporates the latest requirements of the CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive), which will be implemented in 2025 based on 2024 data by large companies.

It offers a prestigious degree in business administration with a strong international and strategic dimension, in perfect synergy with the current challenges facing organisations. Its AMBA accreditation was renewed in June 2022 for 5 years.
