Examples of customized programs High potential branch managers  bank asked IÉSEG to prepare a specific course for its high potential branch managers. For 2 to 3 A days a month over a 6-month period, participants met at IÉSEG to discuss all major issues relating to the management of a business unit. The objective was to encourage managers to become more autonomous, take on responsibilities and develop their decision-making capacity. IÉSEG Executive developed all modules for this course with bankers. Leadership was covered in all the modules. An e-learning platform combining videos, courses, articles and a forum not only enabled participants from various origins to refresh their skills but also to get support for several weeks upon completion of the course. A learning expedition to London and a business game marked the end of the course. Finance training for directors of affiliate companies in the mass retail industry IÉSEG Executive trained the directors of business units of a major distribution group in finance methods and tools. Specific case studies were created for the group.
