"For most of my career I have made video games, most notably I was the producer of Raving Rabbids. Later on I decided to build my own company, I wanted to be able to manage myself and my own business, to push it to the next level. The KEDGE Global Executive MBA gives me the opportunity to share my project and all that goes with it. Many things have evolved, I have met many people, the company has started to be known and my personal development has advanced. The EMBA is flexible with regards to my family life and fits perfectly with my professional schedule."
Next January, I will start an internship in London, working in the City. This first international experience will give me the exposure and the language proficiency I need before embarking on further travels. In August, I will be leaving for an 18-month stint in Wilmington, in the United States, where I will be studying towards a dual French/American degree. Beyond the experience of expatriation itself, this will make my CV stronger and more appealing to international-minded recruiters.

She did not hesitate for long. Only a month into her four-year long course,Soriana decided to go for a dual degree,amongst the many options available. At the end of her second year, she left the Marseille campus for San Diego University,in California. “I spent three amazing semesters there. I was taking the same courses as American students,was living with them... In nearly two years abroad,you really have the time to soak up the local culture”,says Soriana. A year into her exchange,the 23 year-old started to plan ahead and applied for graduation internship positions. The move paid off and Soriana was able to spend her fourth semester at Airbus UK Helicopter, in Oxford,starting in January 2015. “I was working in events marketing, helping with organising airshows.”So,was the dual degree approach worth it? “Yes,I think it was. I did not necessarily realise it at first but during my internship people were often remarking on it when introducing me.” Having graduating in May 2015, Soriana then opted for a gap year. “I wanted to take a break and take the time to think about what I really wanted to do for my Master”,she says. Living in Australia since August 2015, this kayaking fanatic plans her road trip according to the best spots. She works hard between two kayaking trips,however: “I spent three months in Darwin working on a mango plantation,then a few weeks as a waitress in Brisbane,and I currently work as an au pair in Melbourne.” She is never short of plans and projects, that’s for sure! Soriana wants to work as a project manager in the aviation industry. Looks like she is off to a great start!
Having graduating already with a Master in business law from the University of Strasbourg, adding the KEDGE MSc to my education gave me the opportunity to deepen my theoretical knowledge thanks to the diversity and innovation offered during the programme and to the quality of the speakers. Thank to the MSc I performed better on financial issues in my first job in the market activities of Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale. After my success at the three levels of the CFA Programme, I had the opportunity to join the Crédit Mutuel Federative Bank in order to support and analyse external growth projects within the Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale.
“After graduating from the MSc, I was able to join a major French ship brokerage firm as a trainee. This was an ideal gateway for me and I have now been working for this company for over two years. The KEDGE BS experience offered by this Master programme undoubtedly helped me to enter the labour market and be operational much faster.”
A one year compact master of science with unique specialty and focus on maritime industry was the course I was seeking for. KEDGE Scholarship helped me success in shipping. Business development, setting pricing policy and commercial analysis are among my responsibilities nowadays in CMA-CGM. Law courses were the nutshell of this MSc, thought by a professional team which opened a new horizon in international trade and logistics for me.
Anne-Sophie has always gone all-out to achieve her ambitions and has successfully taken up international opportunities to reach the position she holds today.

Maeva initially trained in finance, so the world of culture was not an obvious career path. But that wasn't going to stop her! Her passion for music drove her to persevere, and as soon as she joined the Specialized course "Management of Arts and Creative Industries", she wanted to find a music label. Sociable and ambitious by nature, she soon met many people working in arts and culture in Bordeaux, and it was this network that helped her to land a permanent contract in the sector.
Léo joined the course to pursue his interest in cultures of all kinds and the manner in which these complement each other. He loves different places and multidisciplinary events, with the theme of his dissertation being music festivals in Vietnam. It was therefore quite natural that he should join Ulule to help make musical projects a reality, including providing support for artists and organising crowd funding strategies, etc. The skills required include open-mindedness, natural curiosity, a sense of initiative and perseverance.
