KEDGE Executive Education is expanding its international offer with three new “Advanced Executive Master Programmes”

Building on its widely recognised expertise in Purchasing Management, Supply Chain Management, Innovation and Health, KEDGE is expanding its range of international continuing education programmes in these three areas of excellence.

These new programmes are aimed at international managers in France and/or abroad who wish to upgrade their professional skills and acquire a dual scientific/technical and managerial competence. Every programme is accessible to experienced managers looking for a new or more challenging approach to their job. Their objective is to develop these managers into management positions. They are delivered exclusively in English, by an international team of lecturers and professional speakers, over a one-year period. 20 to 25 places will be open in each course.

In response to issues relating to the flexibility of training time management and travel costs, KEDGE Executive Education provides blended learning programmes, a format combining remote with in-person courses. This format is suited to the managerial reality in companies in an international context of project management, while allowing for more flexibility in everyone’s learning abilities. Immersion seminars are organised with the school’s historical partners to add variety to the course environments and develop the experiential dimension of these programmes.
