    Some words of the academic director of the program

    For most of my professional career, I have held management positions in a French business school. What really makes this DBA original is the mix of two universes, the scientific universe of an engineering school and the managerial universe of a business school. This dual approach should enrich the experiences and background of each participant and imbue him/her with this dual technological and managerial culture. This PhD is also a great opportunity for each participant to take stock of his or her professional practice, to develop and deepen certain aspects through the realization of his or her research project. This DBA will thus allow everyone to take an important step in the development of their career. You will take this step with us thanks to the support of the program's pedagogical team, a team composed of experienced international professors. Good doctorate. Jean-Claude Grass
