Innovation, Transformation, Entrepreneurship programme testimonials
The MSc in Innovation, Transformation and Entrepreneurship offers an original learning experience. The combination of “à la carte” digital learning for know-how skills and face-to-face learning for soft skills, integrated into a real in-company live case in a multidisciplinary context, seems to match new companies’ needs, on the one hand and students on the other.
The stakes for the coming years will be outstanding, because they will be both global and local, disruptive, environmental, collaborative, societal, etc. and the training of new managers who know how to handle all those paradigms simultaneously, then becomes essential to meet those challenges. In this context, we strongly believe that driving innovation and boosting entrepreneurs at the national and international levels are essential. Therefore, we support KEDGE’s initiative in launching this MSc degree. Developing relevant skills will enable young people to get an entrepreneurial spirit, both to create a start-up and to drive in-companies transformation and innovation projects.

The MSc in Innovation, Transformation and Entrepreneurship seems to match perfectly the market’s dynamics by offering students an active learning experience, inviting them to be players themselves in these transitions by integrating the significance of deploying new tools for build-in strategies mobilizing all company’s stakeholders, and by integrating the speed with which the environment is changing. Beyond technical skills offered in this programme, students will develop soft skills needed to be connected to their environment and reinvent more inclusive ways of doing business.

In order to meet new challenges and build the future together, we support KEDGE’s initiative for this new Msc in Innovation, Digital Transformation and Entrepreneurship.
