Executive Master in Management

Pourquoi j’ai choisi Solvay

Je souhaitais acquérir de nouvelles compétences, en finance notamment, pour compléter ma formation en communication. C’est le département RH de RTL-TVI qui m’a fait découvrir l’EMM. Le côté pratique de la formation m’a attirée.

Ce que je pense du programme

Stratégie, positionnement sur le marché, choix marketing, politique de prix… Les études de cas constituent une immersion dans la vie de l’entreprise. Elles nous permettent d’évaluer notre aptitude à identifier des solutions et opportunités et prendre des décisions.

Mon évolution depuis la certification

Nous vivons dans un monde en pleine mutation, particulièrement dans le secteur de l’information. Un monde qui nous force en tant que manager à développer et partager une vision, une ligne directrice. L’EMM donne les clés pour construire cette vision globale. Je m’en sers tous les jours.

Executive Master in Finance

Why Solvay was the choice for me

The programme seemed to me to be the best option for achieving the required knowledge level in finance in Belgium and also the most compatible with my personal and professional set-up.

What I think about the programme

The programme content provides a comprehensive overview of finance and financial products whilst incorporating a significant practical component. The EMF also offers you the chance to meet a wide variety of people and profiles, giving you the added bonus of being able to share often very differing perspectives.

What I have gone on to do since certification

The EMF programme has made it possible for me to pursue a certain direction and level of responsibility in business development, thanks above all to the improved understanding I now have of my clients’ needs.

Executive Master in International Association Management

Why I chose Solvay?

2 years ago, I received the opportunity to sign up for a training of my choice. I looked for something tailored for associations to help me grow into my job. And I found EMIAM.

What I think of the programme

Many people think that in associations, the market is well known and that there is no competition. It’s not the case. Marketing tools they gave us at EMIAM are a huge plus, as networking with people doing a job similar to mine.

My evolution since I’ve been certified

I grew within the society I work for, I have been given the great responsibility and pleasure to become the director of one of our unit. EMIAM gave me the vocabulary and principles I needed. It changed my job and my vision on it, helping me to better work on the creation of value and the engagement of volunteers.

Finance pour Non-Financiers

Pourquoi j’ai choisi Solvay

J’ai comparé le FNF avec les programmes de l’INSEAD et de HEC à Paris. Les modules proposés par Solvay correspondaient précisément à mes besoins.

Ce que je pense du programme

Le FNF nous place au cœur d’une expérience très concrète et pragmatique, qui fait la lumière sur des concepts économiques et financiers souvent complexes. Il nous aide à prendre les bonnes décisions en matière d’impact des investissements sur l’entreprise.

Mon évolution depuis la certification

J’ai appris à bien séparer la comptabilité de la finance et à mieux intégrer la variable temps à ma grille de lecture. J’ai rencontré pendant le programme l’entreprise pour laquelle je travaille aujourd’hui, via un participant.

Promotion 2008
Executive Programme en Immobilier

Pourquoi j’ai choisi Solvay

En tant qu’anversois, j’avais tendance à penser que tout se passait à Anvers ! Mais c’est à Bruxelles que sont installées les plus importantes sociétés du marché de l’immobilier professionnel / retail, tout comme les principaux immeubles de bureaux et shoppings centers. C’est donc tout naturellement que j’ai choisi la Solvay Business School qui bénéficie en plus d'une excellente réputation.

Ce que je pense du programme

L’orientation business du programme m’a particulièrement séduit. La richesse de son contenu et des profils qu’il m’a permis de rencontrer représente un véritable atout.

Mon évolution depuis la certification

Le programme Immo de la Solvay Business School m’a permis d’accélérer mon évolution personnelle. Il m’a donné la confiance nécessaire pour pouvoir faire face à de nouveaux challenges.

Executive Programme en Management et Philosophies

Pourquoi j’ai choisi Solvay

En plus de mon job de DRH, je m’occupe depuis 12 ans du programme de développement durable chez IBA, pour donner du sens à ce que nous faisons. Je trouvais important de revalider un certain nombre de principes, d’un point de vue moral et éthique.

Ce que je pense du programme

Ce programme est unique. Il nous permet de confronter notre réflexion à des philosophes plutôt qu’au monde formaté de l’entreprise. Bavarder avec Luc Ferry ou Comte-Sponville offre un éclairage exceptionnel le rôle de l’entreprise.

Mon évolution depuis la certification

Le programme PHILO m’a permis de progresser dans mes réflexions, d’ouvrir de nouvelles pistes, d’intégrer de nouvelles références dans un monde économique ou le seul profit de l’entreprise ne suffit plus.

Participant 2016
Executive Master in Finance

Why Solvay was the choice for me

Having already studied Economics and International Business I then wanted to complete my array of technical skills in Finance. The EMF programme fitted perfectly with my working hours.

What I think about the programme

The profile of the EMF programme lecturers is highly varied, including people from both the private and public sectors. This is vital in understanding finance, its impact on the economy and the importance of governance via a risk management policy. Upon completing the programme, I changed sector by opting for economic and monetary business. It was down to the programme that I chose to re-dedicate myself to my career, giving me the added confidence I needed to deal with often complex subjects.

Accelerated Management Programme

Why Solvay was the choice for me

I now hold a legal position and when choosing Solvay I was looking to broaden my vision of the company in order to improve my understanding of it and provide better support and advice.

What I think about the programme

I was especially attracted by the programme content, due to the broad range of subjects covered, the international component it contains, the quality of the participants – all from a wide range of backgrounds – and the fact that it was perfectly compatible with my working life.

What I have gone on to do since certification

My company, Sodexo, is in the process of becoming a worldwide group. The AMP has enabled me to gain a better grasp of the thinking behind such a development and teach me how to explain this development to my team.

Participant 2016
Executive Master in Finance

Why Solvay was the choice for me

Having benchmarked a number of business schools in Europe (including in London, Paris and Amsterdam), the EMF programme seemed to me the most all-encompassing and also the one that fitted best with my working life.

What I think about the programme

Finance is a great deal more than just numbers. It requires a more holistic understanding of an organisation and genuine guidance. The lecturers delivering the EMF programme really have their finger on the pulse of the current market, enabling them to make the technical aspects of the discipline more accessible and the complexities more simple, especially via the use of case studies.

Why Solvay was the choice for me

The quality of the programme and those delivering it, the dialogue you can enjoy with fellow businesspeople from European companies and the modules available make Solvay a truly unique point of reference.

What I think about the programme

This comprehensive programme covers the full range of essential topics that you will need to master for IT governance in a company like RTBF.

What I have gone on to do since certification

Certification has helped me enormously in applying certain corporate governance procedures. It has also assisted me in enhancing the overall management of technologies and operations at RTBF.

Why Solvay was the choice for me

The quality of the programme speakers and the fact the training is completely in line with the practical situations that companies currently face were determining factors for me.

What I think about the programme

The programme draws particular strength from the experience of speakers chosen for their specific expertise on each topic, thereby enabling you to explore every area in great depth.

What I have gone on to do since certification

The programme has provided me with a springboard for taking the CISM and CISSP certifications. I now have at my disposal a new network of professional contacts both within and outside my company. The ISME programme has given new life to my career, one that I fully intend to take advantage of over the months and years to come.

Executive Master in Management

Pourquoi j’ai choisi Solvay

J’ai une formation scientifique et j’avais besoin de l’enrichir par une formation plus business. Des connaissances qui ont fait l’EMM m’en ont dit beaucoup de bien. 20 ans après avoir étudié à l’ULB, ça me paraissait tout naturel d’y revenir.

Ce que je pense du programme

Quand on a 15 ans d’expérience, on apprend par l’action, plutôt que dans les livres. L’EMM repose sur une méthode dédiée à la pratique et encadrée par d’excellents chargés de conférence, tous actifs sur le marché. Certaines interventions de chargés de conférences sont tout simplement brillantes.

Mon évolution depuis la certification

L’EMM a développé ma sensibilité aux aspects communication / RH. Ma grille de lecture de matières complexes liées au management en entreprise a évolué. La manière dont j’anime mes équipes aussi.
