“You don’t lead by hitting people over the head-that’s assault, not leadership.” – General Dwight D. Eisenhower

Our MBA students take to the field at the foremost military academy in France to put some practical leadership skills to the test.

April 8th-12th saw our Full-time and Part-time MBA students embark on our annual off campus leadership seminar, at the St Cyr military training academy in Brittany.  The idea was to see how leadership and teamwork using military training exercises could connect skills and competences between military and business success.  The results we saw and experienced came through courage, trust, commitment, motivation, decisiveness, self-knowledge, team work and responsibility of the students, tomorrow’s business leaders.

Now in its 5th year, the seminar plays a vital role in our curriculum. Led by French military leaders, the seminar is aimed to instill sound leadership abilities, and to equip our MBA class with the experience necessary to cement pre-acquired knowledge and strategic thinking.

Upon arrival at the site for the seminar, Ecole Spéciale Militaire de Saint-Cyr, students were kitted out and organized into small teams of ten, with whom they would live and work together to overcome challenges.  Teams were composed of a mixture of January 2013 and September 2012 MBA intakes; all from a multitude of nationalities, professional backgrounds, all mentored by one member of the French military.   What made the seminar more interesting was that some of the MBA students where actually coming from military professions in their respective countries. Our September 2012 intake welcomed four Full-time army officers this year, who played a vital role in the seminar, as mentors of four teams: Tugdual Barbarin, Charles-Emmanuel Daviet, Benoit Olié and Hervé Fernando. These four MBA participants, together, share around 50 years of military experience, and did an excellent job supporting their fellow classmates through atypical situations. (more…)
