Vincent VERDONCK - Head of Sales France & Belgium - Air Europa - Future 2018 Graduate
I chose the EMBA at NEOMA BS for its a strong, differentiated teaching methods, its excellent faculty and executive administration, the four trips/seminars offered, two of them taking place abroad (Silicon Valley and China), its twenty-three-year history and its historic location in Paris, its effort to create mixed classes intended for a range of ages and backgrounds and for its high ranking as an executive programme. In the end, NEOMA BS was the natural choice.
Stéphane Rodriguez de Linares – 2015 Graduate
Commercial Director, AR Industries
"From my time in the Executive MBA programme, I remember the importance of its business plan aspect as a long-term project and also the reflection and brainstorming put into which subject to choose: a personal project that I could use later on in my career or the search for a start-up that needs help? I chose the latter option and contacted the business incubators in my region.
It was Atlanpole in Nantes that put me in contact with the company ELLECTRA, which wanted to structure its business plan and do fundraising. It was an enriching experience for many reasons. Since the subject was interesting I was able to put to use what we learned in the seminars, which gave me the chance to learn about the difficulties that entrepreneurs can encounter."
