Learning expedition

Since 2000, the Collège has organised 'Learning expeditions' where senior managers from more than 150 different companies have given seminars, talks and demonstrations in over 25 countries.

These expeditions provide the opportunity for the participant to gain a unique insight into the culture and business dynamics of the destination country.



The aim of learning expeditions

Every learning expedition is conceived and organised by the Collège in order to achieve the following objectives:

  • Accompany senior managers who are entering top level management
  • Give these managers the necessary management tools
  • Kindle a global vision of their company and worldwide issues
  • Promote the exchange of experiences and develop a network
  • Reinforce the sense of belonging within their company
  • Understand the innovative ecosystem and culture heritage of a region following an M&A
