"I decided to join Ecole Polytechnique because I was truly interested in what the Executive Master is offering. I was looking for an EMBA program that will help me for my entrepreneurship project but it was difficult to find a program on the market that will suit me."
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."

International Strategy Director
"The polyvalence of the Executive Master was for me a crucial aspect in applying for this unique formation in the landscape of the Executive Master / EMBA. One of the main assets is the highlight of leveraging technology in every innovation or Business Model. It is also an ideal formation because of the transversal approach to pointing toward the orientation or priority one wishes to give to his/her career making it enriching to us as individuals and/or more attractive as professionals."
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."
"As an engineer specializing in IT and Telecom, I was looking for a program that would give me exposure to new industrial and technical fields. The Executive Master program at École Polytechnique enabled me to combine the strengthening of my managerial skills along with a scientific formation delivered by high-level experts."
"Technology is getting more and more powerful in everything, and Business environment is changing ever faster everywhere; many organisational approaches are inadequate now and this trend will continue to accelerate.
This Executive Master combines technological and managerial aspects. It aims to assist senior decision makers in having better visibility of entire panorama (of situation and options), understanding of potential impact (whether people, platforms and/or processes), and most important guide them in a better & educated decision making to stay on top. Winners take All."
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."
Marie Le Pargneux
Chief Development Officer - ExCo Member
"My objective in participating in the Executive Master was, above all, to better understand the technologies that are disrupting our world in order to make a greater impact in assisting in the transformation of my company. I never imagined the evolution that would take place, going from a leading bank group to a startup in cybersecurity. The job change would never have been possible without this program. Not only is it comprehensive and transformative, it also provided me with unique opportunities to meet outstanding people."
