"I'm very happy in France. Paris is a wonderful city and you can find amazing companies to apply to. You meet very intelligent people so you can learn from them. I work in a very diverse team, which is very enriching."

Founder of WIKANE

"I joined the Audencia EMBA after leaving my last job as Business Unit Director.

I wanted to consolidate my years of professional experience with academic input into business management in an international environment.

During my career, I moved from technical to managerial positions, by means of intuitive management and common sense, but without academic reasoning. This is therefore what I was looking for by joining Audencia’s EMBA, especially in finance, strategy and marketing.

I developed during this course, thanks to the contacts with colleagues from my year group, with professors or on international business trips.

When I joined the course, I was a “student” looking for a new direction. On completion, I created my own development consultancy for SMBs as part of a franchise. It is something I would definitely not have considered if I had not benefited from the EMBA experience!

Thank you Audencia."

"After graduating with an MBA from Audencia,I was offered a mission, in French-speaking Africa on the premise that I had raduated from a school in France althrough my French wasn't great at the time. The mission was a success and led to more opportunities. When you work with multicultural teams, the more languages you master the easier it is."

"The best surprise I had so far is how French society is so international yet so traditionnal. France has done an amazing job in retaining its culture, language and lifestyle. I interact with people at work who are French but value the international setup."

Director Administrative and FinanciaL - Lowly

"After 25 years of salaried work in which I managed some great projects, I felt the need to take stock and open myself up to a world that was constantly changing.

I needed time and training in order to understand everything that had happened over 25 years and everything that was going to happen today and tomorrow.

This is why I decided to turn towards Audencia’s EMBA in order to reconnect with this changing and innovative world.

Apart from the course itself, it was also the exchanges with other participants and the learnings trips which pushed me to go further.

With determination and sure of want I wanted to do, at the end of my EMBA I decided to start my own business with 3 colleagues from my year group.

This experience in entrepreneurship brought me the fulfilment I was looking for and it is partially thanks to my experience at Audencia that I have got to where I am now”.
