Inge De Clippeleer, Associate Professor and Head of Faculty Management and Humanities at EDHEC Business School, teaches Team Management, Career development, and Leadership. Inge is the most significant contributor to the development of the innovative Transform360 approach at EDHEC. During a recent interview, she stated that:
“A key strength of the Executive MBA at EDHEC is the intense focus on personal and professional development and this is an area which is highly valued by our particpants. As a Business School that strives to remain innovative, relevant, and inspirational, we must take the time to stop and reflect in order to determine how this can be strengthened even further. Our underlying motivation is to help you transform, not change, but transform and improve, adding layers of strength, skills, inspiration, and determining how to really provide you with the opportunity to grow and optimally impact your company. In order to be impactful leaders, participants need to go further than acquiring business skills such as finance and strategy. It’s a lot broader and should include all of the essential foundations that help you develop on 4 different levels: Self-management, functional, emotional, and strategic. You are only as strong as the amount of balance that you have.”
Leadership skills for the future
According to the Financial Times’ second annual chief learning officer survey (2022), companies around the world will be increasing their spending on executive education programmes for their employees. Nearly 75% of respondents cited leadership as being the most important topic for training, with respondents being primarily leadership development heads, chief HR officers, chief learning officers, HR directors, or in similar roles.
The unique Transform360 approach to leadership and career development is a progressive upgrade to the already highly acclaimed Executive MBA at EDHEC. It comes as a response to company needs for enhanced agile leadership on an international scale, increasingly unpredictable socio-economic circumstances such as those brought on by the recent pandemic, and EMBA participants’ evolving ambitions. This greatly customisable approach, coupled with the complete EMBA curriculum, an experiential approach to learning, business trips, a consulting project, and EDHEC’s academic excellence, promises participants an exceptional 360° transformational experience, both on a personal and professional level.
“We can all testify to how this experience has changed us, both personally and professionally. Beyond the academic knowledge, we learnt to be attentive to ourselves (as our body and mind are our first assets). We also learnt to be creative, innovative, and above all…to believe in our abilities.”
stated Julie Konde Rayez, EDHEC MBA alumna, Compliance Director, Internal Auditor, Legal & Data Protection Officer, Groupe Satec, during her graduation speech.
“When I chose to do this EMBA, I was not just looking for a degree. I wanted to engage in a deeply evolutionary process… and that’s what I found at EDHEC! This idea of transformation shows in the curriculum, with a strong focus on coaching and personal development, with the consulting project – an opportunity to put our newly acquired knowledge and skills into practice – or with the global business trips – in Vietnam or in Seattle in my case – that fuel our large-scale vision of business dynamics and trends. When you join EDHEC EMBA you join a lively and tightly knit network. Since the very beginning of the programme, I have felt like I was part of a new family.”
