They followed this programme
I secured a Managing Director’s job after I graduated.
My background is in engineering. I climbed up the ranks one by one within my company. I could sense, however, that I was lacking the skills to secure a top managerial role. I chose the EMBA at the Rennes School of Business because of the quality of its teaching, its international reputation and its ability to adapt to my work commitments. Once I had my degree under my belt, I was named managing director of SDMO Industries. I can now put everything I learnt straight into practice.

Dynamic, stimulating teaching
The EMBA at Rennes School of Business has a highly dynamic and stimulating teaching programme. I learnt a lot about areas I was personally interested in, but also about my various colleagues’ and professors’ areas of expertise. My experience there also enabled me to do forecasting and learn about new sectors such as agriculture, sustainable energy and even conflict resolution in difficult settings.
