Tech-aware leadership is the future

The Global Executive Master in Business Administration focuses on balancing both the knowledge of what’s happening in the outside world and a deeper understanding of yourself to help you drive the teams and the innovations of the future. Regardless of your industry, your position or your level of expertise, you need to be prepared to face unforeseeable disruption in the years to come and lead your teams to prepare for it.

Leading change is a must to stay professionally relevant but to achieve that you must learn how to lead yourself, your teams and your organization. Business education today needs to progress and adapt to tomorrow’s needs. This is why EADA Business School and École des Ponts have joined forces and distilled the expertise of each school into a unique avant-garde Executive MBA focused on:

  • Leadership & Human Centricity
  • Technology Awareness
  • Management and Innovation


GEMBA - Leading change
GEMBA - Anticpiate, face and drive disruption

This Global EMBA will help you anticipate, face and drive disruption. Only by developing a human-centric mindset will you be able to design the innovative business models of the future.

Throughout the program, you will get a chance to create your own products and services using technology as an enabler, and you will help companies solve some of their challenges linked to technology and innovation in quarterly-scheduled corporate challenges.

Organizations will need to, more than ever, create balance between investing in people and investing in technology.

Technology alone cannot create a business environment based on humaneness, values, ethics and creativity.
