The automotive industry needs leaders with the skills to drive innovation
The global automotive industry is more competitive than ever, as resurgent western manufacturers are challenged by the strong growth of Asian producers.
Rising commodity prices, bloated legacy programs, astronomical development costs, and increasing competition all threaten the profitability of manufactures. Particularly, the path towards the development of connected and autonomous cars, cleaner fuels, and high-performance materials is a critical and expensive one.
To thrive in such a competitive market place, firms require agile leaders with the talent to solve these challenges, and define the future of automotive engineering.

The French industry relies heavily on innovation, expertise in Lean manufacturing, competitively priced vehicles, and a large network of equipment, engineering and component companies.
