From 2008 to 2010, I completed the Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA program jointly offered by Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University (USA) and the WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management (Germany). This two-year, part-time general management program integrated all managerial disciplines, focusing on a synthesis of US and European management knowledge with a global perspective, designed to foster the team leadership skills.

Previously, I completed in 2001 a Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology spending the first semester at its European platform Georgia Tech Lorraine, located in Metz, France, and the second semester on the main campus, in Atlanta, GA.

Opened in 1990, Georgia Tech Lorraine is a highly innovative program under which an American university offers graduate programs in Europe allowing us to fulfill the requirements towards the Master of Science degree from Georgia Tech.

In addition, Georgia Tech Lorraine offers a double degree program that combines the Master's degrees from Georgia Tech with advanced engineering degrees from French Engineering Schools. In fact, I finished in December 99 my courses at ENSEA, a Graduate School in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, in Paris, where I specialised myself in Networks and Telecommunications.

French industry and government have long recognized it as one of the top French school in Electronic Engineering. It forms part of the French network of Grandes Ecoles financed by the Ministry of National Education. The school offers a wide variety of graduate, post-graduate and part-time degrees. The full-time core curriculum which leads to the degree of E.N.S.E.A. Research and Development Engineer produces 150 graduates a year.

Before entering ENSEA, I spent two years at one of France's most prominent preparatory schools, exclusively concentrating on getting solid hands on mathematics and science. These two years at Lycée Privé Sainte Geneviève, in Versailles, near Paris, prepares us to high and competetive French Engineering Schools.

Additionally, my engineering experience has not been limited to the classroom during my studies but has expanded into the working world. Throughout my education, I had relevant professionnal experiences dealing with Internet, networks and telecoms from 1998 to 2001.

During the summer 1998, I created the website of Thomson Broadcast Systems. The objectif of the 3-month internship, in Paris, France, was the development of http://www.thomsonbroadcast.com.

I worked within the Marketing Department and handled the overall project, from the competitive websites analysis to the final validation of its contents. It was a great opportunity to work with the different departments and collect the necessary information. Moreover, I maintained the website, from September 1998 to December 2000.

In the summer 1999, I worked during 3 months for Cegetel Group, the largest private telecommunications operator in France. My internship took place in the Engineering Department of the Société Française du Radiotéléphone (SFR). I was given the opportunity there to analyze GSM protocols at A / Abis interfaces, and to develop and document procedures for these types of analysis, which required exceptional organizational and interpersonal skills. Then I created a Microsoft Access database used to improve the subsequent processing.

This experience at an operator was very beneficial, and was the occasion for me to improve my working knowledge of the GSM standard, and to prove my ability to adapt quickly to new situations and activities.

From May to December 2000, I completed a 8-month internship at Ericsson Radio Systems AB, in Stockholm, Sweden. I simulated the behavior of an IP-based radio access network for a cellular mobile phone system. I developed, using the Network Simulator, a simulation tool for the dimensioning of such networks. I was studying network performances and documented different scenarios. It was an excellent opportunity to attend seminars and technical courses on the latest technologies : Bluetooth, EDGE, UMTS, GPRS, IP, Data Communications Networks...

From April 2000 to February 2001, I was working for Moving International Technologies. I managed and guided the web development of Directmoving.com including the graphical design, functionality, and content. I developped their website, using HTML, ASP, Javascript languages, and the Flash technology. I got a great experience in handling online databases, using database management systems, as MySQL. I was also coordinating the new integrations with the different departments and external partners.
