Prof. Sami ATTAOUI

Director, Global Executive MBA

This programme aims to help leaders drive changes and design creative business solutions.

NEOMA Business School is Qualiopi certified under the following action categories:

  • Training actions
  • Apprenticeship training actions
  • Actions allowing the validation of acquired experience

Skill fields: executive posture in an age of disruptions

NEOMA Business School created a curriculum that covers four skill fields:

  • Creation and implementation of a company, business unit or function-based strategy.
  • Development and management of financial decisions for supporting the organisation’s overall strategy.
  • Identification and distribution of development opportunities for an innovative activity, product or service.
  • Leadership of a company, business unit or function and management of employees and teams.

NEOMA offer the possibility of selecting only one skill field out of the 4 skill fields to develop an expertise and obtain certification.

Capstone Project

The capstone project is the cornerstone of the Global Executive MBA programme. It accommodates various types of real project developments: existing business, not-for-profit, new ideas. The project aims to provide the participants to put together their expertise and working experiences along with the knowledge and competencies gained throughout the programme, to shape the project’s strategy and its development stages.

Social Project

The social project promotes ideas that tackle social problems to develop purpose-making technology-based solutions that are economically sustainable.

Industry immersions

Participants will gain insights on how firms in specific industries are strategically dealing with the challenges raised by climate change and spikes in energy prices. The seminars mix company visits, lectures from experts and discussion with top management.

The excellence of our faculty and experts

  • The Global Executive professors and contributors are all experts who are internationally recognised in their field
  • Our professors teach in the best institutions: Harvard Business School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Columbia Business School, Stanford University, University of Southern California, Imperial College London, INSEAD, HEC, Surrey Business School, etc.

Two international seminars to offer a global outlook

The Global Executive MBA includes two one-week modules held abroad called International Learning Experiences (ILE). Each ILE offers immersion based on the following subjects:

Social Entrepreneurship (Accra, Ghana):

Ghana presents three salient features: it has a dynamic economy, serious development ambitions and a stable political environment. This study tour emphasises doing business in Ghana. Our participants meet investors and entrepreneurs at both the incubator and the accelerator stages, and gain a deeper understanding of the business environment. Additionally, our participants mentor and advise young Ghanaian entrepreneurs at various workshops by applying their knowledge and experience, particularly in digitalisation.

Innovation (Location varies every year):

Firms innovate in various ways: products, services, or processes to deal with complexity and thrive. Creativity and technologies shape firms’ ability to innovate. This international Learning Experience (ILE) is structured around corporate culture seminars, visits to research labs and digital hubs, and expert talks. The ILE exposes participants to how industries such as financial services and supply chains leverage digital acceleration and technological advances to drive improvements, cope with increasing competition and new players, and develop growth opportunities.

Capitalising on the synergies of two regions with major economic heritages

Regional anchoring is a central component of NEOMA BS: in the Global EMBA, it is embodied in the seminars devoted to the Champagne-Ardenne and Normandy regions, allowing participants to discover promising sectors of activity (company tours, case studies, etc.).

For example, participants meet with decision makers from the luxury sector (prestigious champagne houses) to discuss circular economics or discover the most successful entrepreneurial stories in Normandy (Ferrero, etc.).

Evaluation procedures

To graduate, the following conditions must be met:

  • Successful acquisition of the competencies delivered by the Global Executive MBA programme through individual and group assessments as case studies, reports and simulations
  • Completion of the Capstone Project: written report and oral defense before a jury
    • Percentage of students sitting final examinations*: 100%
    • Graduation rate*: 100%
