Paris: Seeking innovation for the MBA 

Originating from the same university, a group of about fifteen participants from the Executive MBA programme had the opportunity to take part in a "learning expedition" seminar dedicated to innovation from March 25 to 28. This is a contemporary pedagogical format allowing participants to explore outside the scope of their own companies. Over four days in Paris, the participants had the chance to visit companies or large corporations renowned for their innovation initiatives such as L’Oreal Tech Lab and Fnac-Darty. They also had the opportunity to engage with Alstom leader Michel Haddad and to participate in several inspiring conferences and case studies led by KEDGE Business School professors Dr. Christophe Garonne and Dr. Herve Remaud.
