Two days are dedicated to professional development, and frequent spot checks will help you to identify the skills and expertise acquired as well as the progress you have made.
The consulting project in EDHEC Executive Master Business & Management involves finding solutions to a challenging situation that a company is facing, working as a team..
The consulting project allows the participants to put into practice all the learning acquired during the course and to come up with substantiated recommendations for a real company that is encountering a specific problem.

These include real-life business case studies, business simulations, and immersion courses to experience new managerial practices first-hand.
Business meetings often take place within a similar circle of people to the ones you are surrounded by on a daily basis at work. Individuals may work within a similar field to yours and in a company that isn’t too different in scope and size. As a result, your interactions with business leaders from diverse backgrounds and industries are limited. A great advantage of attending an Advanced Management Programme is the diversity and international reach of its members, as well as the wide range of industries they come from. Everyone contributing to the course means that the AMP allows us to significantly extend our field of knowledge. A year of ‘intellectual sustenance which helped us to grow significantly.

By the time I had completed this course, I had gained a more strategic and global business view. Today, this benefits me both in my interactions with my peers and during my exchanges with clients. The Management Development Programme allowed me time for personal and professional reflection. I have grown from this experience, both in terms of hard skills acquired and from a more human and relational point of view.

I needed to find some breathing space in my career which was fairly linear.
I was really intrigued by EDHEC’s AMP programme for several reasons. Firstly because it’s well-balanced between classes and the absolutely incredible experiences that the programme offers. You’re there on the campus for two half days every fortnight and, independently of those half-days, there are seminars that can run from 3 days to 8 or 10 days.
The AMP is both a completely unique personal experience that is enriching, transformative and extraordinary, and also a real collective adventure.
We shared things during this year in a spirit of unity, camaraderie, mutual aid and support.
After doing this programme, I felt a certain respect among the participants and when you say you’ve done it at a prestigious business school like EDHEC that triggers a bit of envy among quite a few of my colleagues.
And there comes a time when there’s a sort of tipping point and then you suddenly start feeling the benefit which is incredible, in terms of management when you gain a form of fluidity because you’ve learned to look at things from a distance and from higher up, so it’s a lot more seamless. And I’m also getting a lot of satisfaction from it, by carrying out my assignments and leading my team, so all of that is extremely positive.

J’avais besoin dans mon parcours professionnel, qui était assez linéaire, d'une respiration.
J'ai été vraiment séduite par le programme AMP de l'EDHEC pour plusieurs raisons. D'abord parce qu'il est extrêmement bien équilibré entre les cours et les expériences absolument incroyables qu’il propose, puisque vous êtes là sur le campus deux demi-journées tous les quinze jours.
Et puis indépendamment de ces demi-journées, il y a donc ces séminaires qui peuvent aller de trois jours à huit ou dix jours.
L’AMP, c'est une expérience personnelle tout à fait unique, enrichissante, transformante, extraordinaire, mais c'est aussi une aventure collective. On a partagé cette année vraiment dans un esprit de camaraderie et d'entraide, de soutien.
Le fait de dire que j'ai suivi ce programme, je sens à la fois chez les gens une forme de respect, et puis c'est vrai que de dire qu'on l'a fait à l’EDHEC, dans une grande école de commerce, cela fait envie à pas mal de mes collègues qui ont eux aussi envie de s’y mettre.
A un moment, il y a une forme de bascule qui s'opère et d'un seul coup on commence vraiment à sentir les bénéfices qui sont incroyables. à la fois au management, on gagne une forme de fluidité parce qu'on a pris de la distance et de la hauteur donc c’est beaucoup plus fluide. On retrouve aussi énormément de plaisir à produire ses missions et à conduire son métier. Tout ça est extrêmement positif.
