CEO Eductive Groupe
Senior Adviser for Edmond de Rothschild's Strategic Committee
"I decided to chose the Ecole Polytechnique Executive Master because the focus was both on a strategic level, on why would technology and digital and innovation impact our life, but also on a more macro level.
Technology and digital transformation are huge investments, so I need to really understand what questions I should ask myself to avoid mistakes, not to lose time, but also to have a ROI as quick as possible."
Technology & Strategy
"I joined the Executive Master because I found the program is well balanced between the management and the technical aspects that will be required for tomorrow’s leaders. I want to gain some skills in hot technical topics that will be the main challenges for the industries in the next ten years.
In the automotive industry we can see 3 revolutions coming: connected vehicles, autonomous drive and electric vehicles. So, we will need some people that are able to understand the problematics that are related to this, and this is what I want to take from this program."
Woodtech France SAS
"I joined Polytechnique because I feel the necessity to further achieve my academic background. I think some of the topics covered are must-have: digital, industry 4.0, A.I., etc.The team project will be the occasion to apply these learnings and why not to launch a new start-up and become the next unicorn!"
Fast4Ward Program Director
"I’ve been working in the oil and gas sector for almost thirty years now. I wanted to open myself up to other types of technology to see what they could bring to my industry and my company, while also extending my skill set, particularly in terms of my capacity for innovating to create more value."
Dr Jean-Christophe Guillerm
Head of cardiovascular therapeutic area, Global marketing and market access
"I think in medicine, innovation is the main driver for progress for the patient. So if you want to stay on top, you have to manage this innovation and how to use it in the most efficient way.
I have three main expectations : stay up to date on innovation topics, from a strategic and management perspective, being able to set in place the most efficient processes to develop a project, and to join a school with high values, with a strong citizen involvement."
Directrice Administration Paie France
"My choice to apply for the Executive Master program derives primarily from an approach of personal development. It also comes from the need for me to stay ahead of the curve while leading a transformation project in my position as HR Information Systems Director.
At this stage of the program, I have come to realize that not only have I been gaining skills in new technologies, but also developing work reflexes that encourage me to adopt a “disruptive” approach when dealing with technological issues at my company."
Abdul Qadir Malik
Program Head, Professional and Social Integration, Group Holdings PSR/ESC
"I joined the École Polytechnique Executive Master because I strongly believe the energy world and the new technology world are going to be closely intertwined.
The Executive Master is going to give me the answers that I am looking for to be able to better develop the synergies that are required in the energy and the new technology sectors."
Johann Vo Van
Chief Technical Officer
"I decided to join the Executive Master program as I’m currently the Director of Studies and a member of the Administrative Council of my company. I need to be able to understand how business models are evolving, how to adapt my business accordingly and at what pace I should be developing it."
Directeur des Achats Indirects
"I decided to join this program for two reasons. Firstly, I was looking for a way to boost my career and broaden my skillset. Secondly, coming from a business school background, I hoped to round off my profile by developing my capacity for leadership and by gaining a strategic view in relation to management and innovation."
Business Development and Projects
"I joined the Executive Master for two main reasons. First, I would like to learn more about leadership and the management of new and disruptive technologies. Second, École Polytechnique is the #1 engineer school in France, with a strong research background, which is important to develop my network, to become an alumni and to be able to exchange with the top reasearch professionals."
