EXECUTIVE PROGRAMME TESTIMONIES - KEDGE Global MBA
"I was a project manager for about 15 years in a global transportation company. I wanted to have a step back on my career and to go back to school in order to improve my hard and soft skills. I decided to choose KEDGE MBA because of its humans’ values and top of the range teachers in the programme, but also because of the persons I met in KEDGE.
Doing an MBA is a huge transformation. It’s not only about the quality of the course but I chose KEDGE also about the people at KEDGE. You met crazy and open-minded people from all around the world with great experience and it is very valuable for me. Of course, you must be prepared for that. Doing an MBA is a huge work, a lot of energy, it is sacrifices. But it is also joy. You feel that you grow yourself. You can go and reach the next stage. You really feel it. It is a real chance for me to have this experience and if I have only one advice: make you this gift, do an MBA!"
"Four years ago, I decided to pick up my career and started working at Suez. I'm at the procurement department, I operationally manage 100 million euros portfolio of energy expenditure. I am in a team of four people and we manage yearly up to 18 thousand contracts. A year and half ago, I decided to do an Executive MBA. After meeting the team in Paris, KEDGE became the obvious choice.
The two main reasons I have decided to do the KEDGE Executive MBA is…One, for my personal growth. I've been a year now to the program and I get the chance to improve my soft skills, my communication negotiation and put in leadership into practice. The second reason is to acquire new competencies, that I didn't get the chance to get while I was in an engineering school. For example, finance and also design thinking that I got the chance to do in Portland State University. I also did the digital China in Shanghai.
I have met very interesting people and very skilled people that helped me improve my soft and hard skills. The whole journey has been a very transformational experience. I've got the chance to meet brilliant mind. If you are hesitating to embark in this new journey, just don't!"
" I started my career twenty-four years ago with a master in IT. After the University, I quickly found a job in a medical device company, where I had for couple of years some technical roles. Quickly after, I moved into management position. Last June, I decided to leave that company and after couple months of deep reflection, I started to define what I didn't want to do anymore and what I was expecting for my second part of career. I started the Executive MBA program for two reasons. The first one, I wanted to be out of my comfort zone and wanted to strengthen some of my hard and soft skills with the goal, at some point in time, to have a professional experience abroad. The second reason would be, eventually, to start my own company at some point in time. With this MBA programme, I add an opportunity to meet with great teachers and professors but also fantastic people from different and various background in various countries. This was a great experience so far after one year working with them, having fun with them, but also sometimes having difficult moment, because this journey is not like an easy one. If like me, you have a reflection of what your career will look like in the future. Do not hesitate. I strongly recommend you subscribe on an Executive MBA program and you will not be disappointed."
"I started the Executive MBA last November. I was extremely apprehensive. I didn't know what I was getting myself into but I knew I needed a change. I've been in middle management for a long time. I've been a found raiser for the past 12 years of my life and I was looking to become a leader, more than just a manager. Since starting the MBA, my life has completely changed. My skills of growing, my soft skills, have come along leaps and bounds. I'm actually starting a new job in leadership, back in London, in January to say that the cage MBA has been transformational. Seems like an understatement when I consider all the changes and the journey that I've been on. I couldn't recommend it enough, just do it !"
