Director, EDHEC Executive Master Business & Management and Management Development Certificates

In a world where the rhythm of transformation is accelerating, short certificate programmes for executives were developed in order to accompany leaders faced with current and ongoing changes. The 5-day training course targets specific issues and provides participants with the keys to decipher changes, no matter how paralysing they may seem at first glance. Tools are introduced for achieving immediate action. The short programmes focus on the 4 most important dimensions of value creation: Transformational leadership, digital strategy, CSR strategy, and financial strategy. You learn to take a calculated step back in order to assess the situation, develop the tools for implementing your new vision, reinvent your leadership style and drive the transformation of your organisation.

Beyond the great pedagogical and human qualities of the speaker, who was able to demystify financial management tools, I particularly appreciated the exciting and enlightening day at the Station F incubator, where we met professionals from investment funds and start-ups, players across the entire value chain, for a real-life perspective of the theoretical courses of the previous days as well as frank discussions about the respective activities of the participants
