Our alumni share their experience and how the programme contributed to their career development.

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, year group 19, graduated in 2015

I graduated from the Executive MBA programme at Rennes School of Business in January 2020. The learning experience was intense and challenging, as I expected. The topics covered and the teaching methods are designed to foster collaboration between international students, which I greatly appreciated. The Executive MBA has allowed me to gain a clear vision of all aspects of managing a modern and innovative company on a global scale, and this global vision is a real professional advantage these days. After graduating, I had the opportunity to change companies and take on more responsibilities. Completing the Executive MBA has definitely been an enormous help for successfully making this career change.

Darin Beach, top of his class in the 23B group year, graduated in 2020

I signed up to the Executive MBA at Rennes School of Business with the aim of joining a multinational fashion company and benefiting from a multicultural experience that would help me achieve my goal. At Rennes School of Business, I had the opportunity to join an international class with a wide variety of profiles, and I particularly appreciated the exchange of experiences and views on the different topics covered. The Executive MBA has given me a lot of knowledge and advice on the different aspects of developing and managing a company. I am pleased to say that, thanks to this rewarding experience, I have managed to position myself in the company I wanted and in the position I wanted. I come from Mexico, I loved life on campus, the multiculturalism of students and the busy community life. Rennes is also a welcoming, lively city with an excellent quality of life.
