On Friday, January 6, 15 Chinese leaders joined the Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) of Audencia Business School and Western Business School in Chengdu. All participants have a master’s degree and an average of 10 years of professional experience as executives. They run companies in various sectors, including digital technology, urban planning, services and finance.
During three years, these leaders will take part in seminars organized by the best teachers and researchers of both schools to discover the latest academic research works about the various aspects of management, with a particular focus on responsible leadership and innovation. One of these seminars is organized in Nantes to develop the relationship with French leaders.
In parallel, the Chinese leaders are supervised by a team of professors-researchers from both schools guiding them through the writing of a thesis aimed at applying management theories to their own businesses.
