Today, technology is at the heart of our clients' business, and their business and technology strategies are inseparable, if not indistinguishable. Data and artificial intelligence technologies are recognised as powerful levers to execute these strategies and transform the business.
To reap the full benefits of its data, the company must enable the relevant use of data within a controlled framework. To optimise its business processes, it must deploy artificial intelligence and automate activities wherever possible and relevant.
The talents arriving on the job market today, in addition to showing curiosity and agility, must understand the challenges of this transformation to imagine the company of tomorrow. They must master the technologies, understand their strengths and limitations in order to be able to implement them within their company in an ethical and responsible manner. Through the BI & ML master's programme, Kedge offers training that prepares students to address these issues.

I went to a top ranked Grandes Ecole in south of France to pursue my Masters in International Business. Kedge Business School in Marseille became my next study destination and the city became my next abode. New city, new education system was definitely a surprise initially for me as I spend all my previous years in my home country but this place and it’s people welcomed me with open hearts.
I still remember my first day in France when I landed at the airport in Marseille provence and a team of students from my school came to pick me up. This support was extended to me for the entire year which in return is being offered by me to the future students.
Education system is really challenging as it compels you to work in both groups & individually. It’s fully of practical experiments, seminars, guest lectures and in the end industry visits.
I met students from more than 10 nationalities in my class and professors from more than 30. I would be studying Marketing from a French professor but Finance from a Tunisian one. Operations was taught by somebody from Japan and let me assure you all of these elite professors are industry leaders and the knowledge they share with you is the real time one as they share their daily experiences with you in the class and not just something from the books which were written 30 years ago.
Right after my ninth month during school, I got a job in Paris. Yes, you read it right, in nine months. Infact I am still a student as this job is a mandatory part of my diploma which I would get next year. Even I was taken by surprise that how different things looked when I was in India compared to where I am today. I was a student of International Business majoring in International Marketing and today my job is exactly what I studied at the school. I am working as a Country Manager to India for a french company based in Paris.
“Being part of one of the best companies in the Supply Chain world I am constantly challenged with difficult problems to be solved. The proximity and velocity to respond to Customer demand, meeting promises while ensuring the minimal potential investment is just one of them. The distribution of the volume across countries and warehouses, ensuring the right transportation method to the customer is just another. The Supply Chain world can be challenging, but also exciting and ISLI gave me all the tools I need to become successful.”
In the purchasing sector, the product is at the heart of the company's strategy with new challenges in terms of innovation and sustainability. The notions of quality and price are the fundamental elements of our jobs as buyers, and the third key is the time required to make the goods available.
Internationally, inbound or outbound logistics is therefore one of the components of the final price. It is a significant lever for optimisation and savings and requires mastery of all aspects, especially customs and legal. This learning process requires training.
In a world where 80% of international trade is carried out by sea, it is quite natural that I chose one of the best training courses in this field, "the Msc International Trade & Logistics". The training is very practical and provides the necessary theoretical basis for acquiring expertise in the field of international transport. It is also the access to a dynamic professional network with programmes such as mentoring that led me to the company I joined following the Master's degree.
Today, I am the purchasing and logistics manager for the Marseille-based group CIS, which generates 100% of its turnover internationally.
In this context, I was able to acquire and consolidate expertise in Africa, the Middle East, Eurasia and South America. I lead an international team with which we implement and manage the purchasing strategy in more than twenty countries.
I've always been interested in international trade and logistics and I chose one of the flagship and historic courses at Kedge Marseille, the Master's degree in International Trade and Logistics. The quality of the training provides a solid foundation for training future transport and logistics professionals. Blending professional speakers and professors, it achieves a balance between academic and professional knowledge.
I wanted to get involved in the socio-environmental issues related to the practice of international trade, the training has provided me with a base of essential skills in order to continue in this field. I am now pursuing my career in the various themes of transition, and the transformation of the transport sector is obviously one of my main areas of reflection.
After two first years spent in “Grande Ecole” master program, I wanted to give a clear functional and operational color to my academic path. Focused on Supply Chain field, I opted for the International Trade & Logistics MSc that took place of my third year in KEDGE BS and allowed me obtain a double diploma.
Quality of teaching provided by professional speakers combined to challenging case studies and richness of profiles attending the MSc have made of this year the perfect springboard to initiate my career in Supply Chain consulting field. On top of skill learning, the international dimension given to the program is a key element to face nowadays business stakes.
I was a seafarer on board container vessels for 3 years and I wanted to get a master’s degree in maritime and logistics field. I found Kedge Business School with its well-known International Trade & Logistics program and it was one of my target to get a master’s degree abroad and working in a maritime or logistics company office and settle down after challenging sea experience.
The curriculum of the program was very well organized and it allowed me to develop my skills not only in maritime but also in logistics and to understand the onshore side of the maritime business. During the program I learned a lot from important professors mostly coming from industry and I learned from my classmates coming from different backgrounds and countries through group studies.
Today, I work in a French Oil & Gas Performance Management Company in an international environment and I am using my sea experience and the management capabilities that I gained at Kedge Business School which is very important for me.
