You will work with real “live” projects together with corporate partners of CEMS and of SSE.
Through the combination of topics covered in the program, you will acquire a deep and integrated understanding of how international firms and other organizations function, how to navigate them to achieve results, and, last but not least, how to improve them and the things they do.
