Executive Master in Management – Grande Ecole
If the basic education is intended for students, the continuing education of the EDC Paris Business School is very different. This 19-month training module, more commonly called Executive PGE, offers basic elements of business management and learning about the various functions of a structure.
Continuing education is aimed at several types of people. Business leaders who want to turn their structures around are the first goal. When they are in charge of a business, they already have competencies in the business, but must constantly evolve. The Executive PGE in management will provide the necessary tools to plan or even anticipate a business strategy. The education leads to a master’s degree, Bac + 5, recognized by the state.
Employees who want to develop in the company are also a privileged target for this training. Managers can actually offer them financial support for training. These employees, often seen as the talents of their companies, are often helped to fund the training of their companies. During the 19 months, they acquire the necessary skills to hold a position of greater responsibility.
Companies turn to EDC Paris Business School. They often have a fairly clear mapping of their most promising elements. Since they do not want to resort to external recruitment, they prefer to rely on their talents. The creation of a group of Executive PGE in the company is then possible thanks to the diploma from EDC Paris Business School. Through this ongoing training, the company can therefore maintain its promising elements by developing them within it.
A selective training of expertise
The quality of continuing education is ensured by the school’s 70 years of experience, but also by its selectivity. To access it, you must meet a number of prerequisites. First of all, an academic minimum of Bac +2 or Bac +3 is required. A university level that can be compensated with professional experience of at least 3 years, especially for the BAC + 2 level. The files are then studied individually.
The applicant’s academic goals weigh very heavily in his admission. Before embarking on this 19-month journey, you still need to have a base. The teaching teams at EDC Paris Business School can help bring a project to life, leading to more effective training afterwards.
EDC Paris Business School aims to put together groups of classes that are homogeneous in level but also heterogeneous in profile. Once the files have been selected, candidates will go through important stages before being admitted. The first in the analysis of candidate profiles. The files must consist of a CV and a document describing the size of the position held in the company. Applicants will then be interviewed by an admissions counselor. They must prepare 2 or 3 letters of recommendation to support their admission. Once this step is completed, all that is left is to have a more in-depth individual interview with the Admissions Director, Anne Lefèvre.
