Executive Education at Centrale Nantes

Our vision

Skills are evolving at an ever-increasing pace. Training throughout one's career, on one's own initiative or as part of the company's training plan, has become invaluable if we are to evolve and develop our working practices.

In addition, to deal with recruitment shortages in certain sectors, professional training can help to combine career transition for individuals, sustainable integration into employment and economic sustainability for companies.

Within the Centrale Nantes Executive Education Department, our team of project managers can design tailor-made professional training programmes for company engineers and executives and engineers, seeking to enhance their scientific and managerial expertise, as well as for people who wish to change career direction, using a variety of methods:

  • Standard courses (courses or modules of your choice, from a few hours to several days)
  • Tailor-made courses based on the school's expertise
  • Inter-company or in-company training
  • Support for VAE (Recognition of prior learning and experience) courses

Our training programmes are made-to-measure to meet the needs expressed by clients, whether they be companies or economic players, and are closely linked to the latest developments in sectors of activity accompanying the economic and energy transition, such as MRE - Marine Renewable Energies - or architecture and urban planning.  These programmes are recognized and certified by the relevant professional branches.
