About / Board

Our members and representatives of our ecosystem make up our Board, member companies co-own and co-govern CEDEP and are able to leverage the expertise and contacts of other members.

 

No other educational institution offers companies the opportunity to participate actively and strongly influence the development of its curricula. Members are represented on the Board and also form an Advisory Education Committee that meets to give feedback, express specific management development needs, and to jointly develop new learning programmes.
