“Combining my Executive MBA with my start-up company was a very intense challenge, but the experience was very enriching. Well beyond the training provided, (which was my initial goal!) meeting people with very different backgrounds truly broadened my horizons. I met a lot of great people… and even recruited the COO of my company!”

Cathy LESAGE, Rennes SB Alumni ‘20 – President, RUBYCAT-Labs


“I joined the Executive MBA at Rennes School of Business at the time I co-founded a SaaS software start-up. I was transitioning from a CTO to a CEO position with an orchestrating role. I had the profile of a technical engineer and I lacked management and strategic development skills. The Executive MBA has enabled me to get a year ahead in operations for developing my company, thanks in particular to the course in Leadership, HR Management, Financial Strategy and above all Major Innovation, which guided me in my product development choices. It was also a great human experience with a variety of very different profiles among my fellow students.”

Dominique PÉRÉ, Rennes SB Alumni ‘15 – Strategy/Director Digital Platforms, Data 4 Digital


“The Executive MBA programme provided the steppingstones that I needed in order to progress in my career. It gave me the tools to be able to reach my goals. More than just learning how to lead a company to success, the programme taught me how to operate in an international environment. Thanks to its unique teaching methods, bringing different students from different countries together, each of us shared our experiences and cultural differences while striving for excellence.”
