General Manager at Regional Institute of Social Work Champagne Ardenne
Diplômé en 2011

During the Executive MBA at NEOMA Business School, I worked with conviction on the subject of education for my business plan: the project of setting up an innovative pedagogical system in schools at all levels in France.

This MBA is one of the foundation blocks of my personal and professional career. I was chosen among many candidates for the position of General Manager of the Institute of Social Work of Champagne Ardenne (IRTS), based in Reims.

In January 2017, we inaugurated our renovated and modernised 6200 m2 premises. Now a team of 60 permanent employees and 220 professionals train approximately 500 apprentices each year in 12 social work professions: social worker, specialised educator, etc.

My MBA brought me to run this higher educational establishment, not in the form that I would have imagined, but far more quickly that if I had had to start from scratch without it.

Doing this Executive MBA has been the best decision of my life! From the first moment it felt like I was on a mission with a great group of people. The teamwork is very special and I made very good friends. The high level of professors, the variety of subjects, the international experience is certainly intellectually challenging, but it is the next business level I was aspiring to. Dealing with other cultures is a challenging experience. However, adjusting your business and yourself culturally is an absolute requirement today. I felt that in the course of the programme I strongly enhanced my capabilities to take on an executive role. For example, after 4 days with the ‘French Navy SEALs’ I felt like I mastered the subject of leadership. Study tours abroad helped me gain knowledge, confidence and experience I was seeking. During a study tour to New York we worked at Bloomberg which gave me a deeper understanding of financial management tools. Sessions with a career coach and public speaking classes also helped boost my confidence.
