Teaching Corporate Finance yearly in ESA EMBA is an enjoyable experience for me.
The students’ skill level is excellent. They are high-level professionals: Engineers, Marketing
Managers, Operations Managers, and CEOs. As most of the students are experts in a specific
domain, our job as teachers is to help them develop a more transversal knowledge on
decision-making tools, like Corporate Finance, so that their career will take off and that they
may have a better understanding about the strategic dimension of management.
As a lecturer in Corporate Finance at ESCP Europe and also a Chartered Accountant (French
CPA), I really appreciate the interaction with the students. Throughout the three days of the
seminar, each financial topic I develop encourages the students to seek more knowledge on
the subject and its application to their professional activity. I feel like a consultant creating
tailor-made approaches to facilitate their understanding of Corporate Finance concepts.
Discussing about how the financial tools can be applied in their companies is also a platform
for them to share their experience on the different ways to do business in Middle East, from
Lebanon to Dubai and from Saudi Arabia to Qatar.
To conclude, I am very proud to help EMBA students of ESA embark on a new phase of their
professional careers by providing them with tools to become strategic decision makers.
