The 'learning expedition' format: for whom, why?

A "learning expedition" is part of a change management methodology in companies. It follows a "discovery journey" format with the aim of facilitating interactions between teams and other inspiring companies, cultures, and environments, or different ways of doing, thinking, designing, or working. In essence, it serves as a true source of inspiration and creativity for all participants!

At KEDGE, we regularly offer this format to international groups in partnership with international universities. Our expertise, our know-how in Executive Education, and our close collaboration with local businesses enable us to create impactful and enriching experiences that align with their expectations.

Do you want to entrust us with your 'learning expedition' project?

Our team is here to discuss your project with you.
