"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."
