In a competitive market in France as well as in China, KEDGE's Master of Business Administration continues to defend a list of achievements, reflected more than ever this year by its alumni. I am proud of what becomes of them after graduation. It is the result of a permanent adaptation of our program to serve the ambitions of our graduates and their career progression. Our alumni are our best ambassadors and I look forward to seeing them again as part of our “Lifelong Refresh” initiative and the events we organise regularly.

Professor Hervé Remaud, Director of KEDGE MBAs

The KEDGE Executive MBA intends to capitalise on the experiential aspect of the program by delivering it face-to-face, while retaining some distance learning courses. The international experience will increase by strengthening ties and interactions with its associated campuses in China and Africa for the benefit of its participants.
