Kerry LaPrees is an EDHEC Global MBA participant from the United States who came to EDHEC Business School with his wife and two year old son. For the LaPrees family, choosing the right program had as much to do with what the school had to offer, as did the city. Nice was the best choice.
Mamiko Ogasawara, an EDHEC Global MBA participant in the class of 2015, has a very pleasant and down to earth personality with rich experience in technology and telecommunication business. Before joining EDHEC, she was the deputy manager of Toshiba Corporation's Transmission & Distribution System for the European market. With experience of working in various leadership roles in markets across the globe, EDHEC Global MBA program’s emphasis on diversity and leadership met Mamiko’s some of the most important criteria. She says, “Having worked with companies across the globe and especially in Europe, I know how difficult it can be sometimes to coordinate international operations. It was important for me to pursue an MBA in an academically challenging and culturally diverse environment. Often, Japanese culture is so concerned with avoiding conflict that this can limit constructive communication.”
