The Global Executive MBA programme in detail

The programme is structured around four main modules, each dedicated to learning a value creation process. Each module is broken down into lessons designed to encourage the development of systematic thinking to better understand and learn to manage complexity.

Through the different residential weeks, the Global Executive MBA programme offers the possibility of experiences within the ecosystems of the school's different international campuses, in the USA, China, Brazil and France.

Module 1: Understanding the wider environment

This first module is aimed at understanding the environment in the broad sense. More precisely, programme participants learn to recognise weak signals, to navigate interlinked megatrends, and to develop a cross-disciplinary approach to understand the world from a perspective beyond that of traditional management.

Module 2: Strategising for and in a changing world

In the second module, EMBA participants learn to elaborate strategies for and in a changing world. The lessons enable them to understand the potential of technologies, sustainability and other major drivers of business growth and transformation. With this understanding, they can gain expertise to devise and implement strategies that widen the possibilities.

Module 3: Management of organisations and operations

The second-last module of the EMBA is aimed at developing value-added skills that improve companies' operational efficiency. This means learning to identify the challenges facing the supply chain as a result of the growing pressure of international competition, client and customer expectations, regulatory requirements, and environment protection.

The students commit to safeguarding the planet and to protecting personal data and its ethical use. They learn to think like the school's avant-garde, to act like impactful players, and to contribute as a global institution.

Module 4: Transformation – the challenge of implementation

To round off the programme, the fourth module of the EMBA is all about implementing transformation. The students become capable of improving and using their leadership to devise a complex transformation and transcend normative approaches. They learn to take into account crucial questions concerning rights, ethics and governance in their decision making.
