Several prizes have been awarded (Factory of the Future, Innovation, Digital, International, Manager of the Year…). Mr. François Bonvalet said TBS pleasure and pride to sponsor this event. He notably evoked the role of management and leadership training in the aerospace ecosystem, referring explicitely to the Aerospace MBA program. He pointed out the interest for the aerospace organizations to think of internships/corporate missions and of team projects for the
#AerospaceMBA Delegates. He highlighted that 26% of ToulouseBS graduates are working in the aerospace industry. He announced the coming recruitment of 14 new faculty (including two with an aerospace profile). Eventually he awarded Mr. Ludovic Asquini, President of Nexteam Group as “Best Manager of the Year”.
