2017 cohort 21 - Executive MBA
Founder of Wi6labs
“You see life differently after 18 months of EMBA.”
“You are not born a Breton, you become one.” Originally from the north of France, Ulrich Rousseau is now the CEO and co-founder of Wi6labs, a network deployment company created in 2014. It was in 2016 that he took the plunge and joined the Executive MBA at Rennes School of Business.
He has fond memories of this programme, which has helped him in his professional life and as an engineer, and has found that applying the methods learned in class has helped him develop his company. He particularly remembers Irena Descubes, a professor at Rennes SB, for her efficiency and her involvement with her students. He advises the students who would like to become entrepreneurs to surround themselves with the right people, to keep in mind that creating a company is not a sprint, it is a marathon. “You have to accept the entrepreneurial risk, dare and take the plunge!”
