Jean-Louis Prades, Director of Air France KLM Burkina Faso, just got graduated from Montpellier Business School thanks to the Validation of the Acquisition of Experience


This Monday the 7th of December, M. Jean-Louis Prades, Director of Air France KLM Burkina Faso, presented and validated his defence thesis. It is thanks to the VAE (Validation of the Acquisition of Experience) that he officially graduated from Master, 30 years after obtaining his last degree.

Director of the airline company Air France KLM in Burkina faso since 2012, M. Jean-Louis Prades wanted to obtain his Master’s degree by the Validation of the Acquisition of Experience primarily for personal reasons. « I wanted to review my 30 years of working experience. And for me, it had to be formalized by something concrete », he says 20 minutes after he validated his defence thesis. « I obtained a two-years diploma specialized in tourism 30 years ago and during my career, I benefited from a quality internal training but I also did other trainings with EDHEC for example. And above all, I needed my own recognition on my abilities. For me, the VAE was a good way to concretize it but also to step back on my professional life by doing this very introspective work. »

Jean-Louis Prades decided to do the Master Grande Ecole from Montpellier Business School through the support of the agency « Les 2 rives ». « I didn’t know if I had the master level but I was ready to try and be involved. Montpellier Business School is a management school recognized worldwide and that is in the world top 50, which made me willing to take on the challenge! I studied from Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso, from 5 to 10 hours a week, essentially on the weekend, and my thesis was done in 12 months. I wanted to thank all those who provided me support through this adventure and especially Vincent Causse, consultant and Associate Director of Les 2 Rives, and François-Xavier Théry, Business Developement Manager from Montpellier Business School », says Jean-Louis Prades.

After the defence thesis and the committee’s deliberation, we can see how relived he feels and the emotion in his voice. « The defence thesis went well even if I was a bit nervous at the beginning. The deliberation was quick and now, I am happy, relaxed and a little bit moved. I am proud to be now graduated from Montpellier Business School and I will immediately announce it to my children ».

The Master Grande Ecole from Montpellier Business School is one of the few that you can obtain thanks to the Validation of the Acquisition of Experience.
