💼 Kedger first and foremost

Kedge is a very good memory that I made in 4 years, since I did my national service between my 2nd and 3rd year. I found it an extremely rich place of learning with a diversity of teaching that allowed me to develop diverse interests, as the courses changed every semester. This was a real asset in my career path, as it gave me a broad perspective on different and complex subjects, a real advantage for starting a career in consulting, the field I chose after my studies to pursue a more technological path.

KEDGE was a real investment for me, both financially and personally. The ROI has been to learn, to develop my skills, my knowledge and my know-how.

🎓 KEDGE, orientation post

My time at KEDGE has played an essential role in my career path. One of KEDGE's strengths lies in its hands-on approach to learning. Concrete projects, real-life case studies and interaction with industry professionals gave me a valuable perspective on real-world challenges. This enabled me to better grasp specific customer needs, understand expectations and translate them into real technological transformation projects.

Diversity is also one of KEDGE's great assets. I think being exposed to different cultures, mindsets and personalities during my studies unconsciously influenced my choice of an international career.

🎯 And the future?

With my new role as VP AI Development EMEA my goal for the future is to best serve our customers, always focused on operational excellence, continuous innovation and the strategic positioning of our organization as a leader in the AI field.
