Bonjour ! السالم عليكم
My name is Khaled, I am an Algerian and French citizen, and I am currently pursuing the Global MBA.
Before joining ESSEC, I was working for AKKODIS in France for the past 9 years intervening with our customer Renault. In my latest mission, I had the role of Project Manager of the Kangoo 3’s Electrical Distribution System which consisted in taking charge of the development and industrialization of the related parts for this car. Before that, I occupied a position of Engineering Leader and was involved in the development and industrialization of other successful cars such as Clio, Capture, and Kadjar.
Through these years, I witnessed the high pressure on reducing the environmental impact of our products and I believe this topic will be of even higher importance in the future. In that context, new innovations are more and more expected to be delivered from industrial actors and I am thriving to provide my best contribution to that goal. Throughout my missions, I was mainly involved in that effort while adapting the electrical wirings to cleaner motorizations (Electric and Hybrid mainly) and now I want to extend my contribution to a broader level, both from a sectorial and functional standpoint.
In that respect, ESSEC has the right mix of diversity and course curriculum that can help advance towards these goals. The school has deployed amazing actions aiming to emphasize the importance of sustainability at any level of our businesses and I think that the digital industry contains an important potential that can enable to produce disruptive solutions, beneficial both from an economic and environmental point of view. Additionally, ESSEC’s industry relations and alumni network provides numerous opportunities to network, brainstorm business ideas, and gather valuable inputs while making meaningful connections that ultimately help grow broadly.
That said, if you also want to be part of this wonderful world changing institution, I would be happy to answer all your questions and help you through the journey of becoming a part of the ESSEC community.
