The keys to top management 

The Executive Master in Management is divided into two distinct blocks. You will begin with case studies on specific skills before gradually transitioning to cross-cutting issues that address the global challenges faced by today's top managers.
BLOCK 1 : Specialised skills

Financial statement interpretation, financial diagnosis establishment, identification of needs, and creation of an investment and valuation plan.

Module 3

Analysis, value creation, and marketing strategy definition.

Module 4

Self Management, developing your own leadership style, team management, and conflict resolution.

Integration of key challenges and the resulting business opportunities. In addition to theoretical and operational knowledge, we help you assimilate the digital culture and its best practices.

Module 6
Innovation & Entrepreneurship

Learn how to anticipate and navigate the challenges of the contemporary entrepreneurial environment, while exploring examples like Airbnb, Netflix, and BlaBlaCar. Embrace innovation and entrepreneurship at the core of your business approach, whether you're an entrepreneur or a manager.

Module 7
Growth & Sustainability

Exploring aspects such as integrated innovation policy, incubating new business models, outsourcing activities, growth hacking, and determining the level of sustainable development with a consistent financial structure.

Teaching Methodology

A first-person learning experience

The Executive Master in Management is rooted in a fundamental principle: it is through practice that a manager's skills are honed. Therefore, the programme is built upon an innovative method that places you at the core of the learning experience: the case method.


Objective: Analyse and solve complex real or fictional problems that encompass all managerial dimensions of the company. As you delve into these challenges, you will enhance your autonomy, analytical thinking, synthesis skills, and leadership abilities, while also deepening your specific competencies. Step into the shoes of a business leader, determining the strategic and operational directions for all the cases presented to you.

Throughout the year, an array of three immersive seminars are organised:


  1. Introduction: a comprehensive seminar serving as an introduction to the Executive Master in Management
  2. Airline Manager Game: a hands-on simulation in strategy and management
  3. Role-playing: a seminar focused on strategy and finance

Starting in January, you will collaborate in a team of four to five individuals to develop a business plan that revolves around a unique theme, resulting in diverse projects akin to a Business Case.

This business plan is an opportunity to sharpen your ability to carry out new projects in a company, with the assistance of a seasoned coach.

What our participants say

Hakima Darhmouch

"I wanted to acquire new skills, particularly in finance, to complete my training in communication. I turned to the Executive Master in Management for its practical side, in particular thanks to the case studies which constitute an immersion in the life of the company in terms of strategy, market positioning, marketing choices and pricing policy...They allow us to evaluate our ability to identify solutions and opportunities and make decisions.

We live in a world that forces us as managers to develop and share a vision, a guideline. The Executive Master in Management provides the keys to building this global vision."

Benjamin Windal
Chief Strategy and Innovation

"The Executive Master in Management has considerably enriched my range of skills and knowledge, both in the field of finance and the digitalisation of businesses, as well as in marketing and leadership.

At the same time, I was able to create a dynamic and supportive network of contacts during this training. We know we can contact each other for questions that arise during the career.

Finally, and what is most important to me, this training opened my mind: today I am constantly looking for feedback in order to develop and perfect my role as a manager."

David Fortems
LS Service Director
"To continue to develop and evolve in a rapidly changing world, it is essential to train. The Executive Master in Management program was, for me, the best way to broaden my skills. The case method used is very interactive and collaborative. It allows everyone to argue, react, interact, and above all to open up to other areas of skills. Challenge, personal development, rigor, excellence, quality of courses... all These words sum up the Executive Master in Management."
Christophe Severs
Senior Vice-President, Strategy
"When you have 15 years of experience, you learn through action, rather than in books. The Executive Master in Management is based on a method dedicated to practice and supervised by excellent lecturers, all active on the market. Some of the presentations by lecturers are simply brilliant. My reading grid of complex matters linked to business management has evolved, as has the way in which I lead my teams. I have also been able to develop my sensitivity to communication aspects and HR."
Marielle Rogie
Head of Communication and Marketing
Brussels Airport Company
"I wanted to progress in my career, by enriching my financial and economic background in the broad sense. A manager must quickly understand the issues that concern his organisation, get to the essential, demonstrate critical thinking and, above all, recover in question when necessary. The Executive Master in Management helps us to integrate this dimension, to take a step back from our role. The training gave me a taste for team management."

"Growth is at the heart of every business today. The Executive Master in Management embraces this strategic dimension by addressing all its components. From the keys to an integrated innovation policy, to the effects of growth on your operational organisation, the incubation of new business models, the outsourcing of activities, growth hacking, and even the definition of the level of development supported with a constant financial structure."
