The traditional model of academia is to progress from extensive research of events and social phenomena to produce actionable theories, tools and frameworks to better understand today’s challenges. In a "VUCA" world (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous), this traditional approach is not enough. The fourth industrial revolution and digital transformation of both manufacturing and supply chains are happening now. Changes will increase exponentially.

The Executive Master in Industrial Transformation (EMIT) is designed to equip those managing industrial organisations to lead them through the challenges and opportunities these technologies can create, solve or unlock.

The programme fuses the humanistic and entrepreneurial tradition of ESCP and Comau’s advanced disruptive  technologies.   The   EMIT  delivers value to our partner companies through offering their  managers  the  skills  and  support  they   need to act now for a future-proof tomorrow. Participants engage with industry professionals and will experience lectures, workshops, company visits and labs. During the programme the participants develop and apply directly to their companies the knowledge, skills and mindset to navigate high- impact and innovative projects.

Using the words of Benjamin Franklin: ‘Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn’. This is the real spirit of EMIT.

What convinced me to choose the EMIT was the very clear value proposition,  one  with  a  variety  of  tailored  subjects   designed to integrate and boost my managerial competencies. The programme’s action-driven  learning  style  motivated  my  class  to engage and be part of a well-rounded experience. What I liked the most was the faculty, who stimulated us as a class to think differently. Several times my well-established beliefs were turned upside down, while also discovering new ways I could understand the industry.”
