The 2023 edition of La Femme du Digital
La Femme du Digital is an initiative to allow women to share their journeys and highlight women leaders in the technology field. This event is co-organized by Cofidis Business Solutions and Ecommercemag and highlights the female leadership of 10 inspiring women.
“Thank you, Ecommercemag.fr, for allowing me to share my journey and highlight women leaders in Tech!” expressed Malena on a professional social network.
While she was still a Devinci Higher Education student, Malena was already working in hotel establishments. Attracted by this world of excellence, she began her career as a sales representative for a top-of-the-range hotel label comprising more than 300 independent establishments.
After spending two years at Adagio, a hotel chain belonging to the Accor group, Malena joined the management committee of Maison Options, a company specialising in equipment rental and table and buffet staging.
Since 2020, Malena has been General Manager France at Booking.com, a global company offering accommodations from hotels to guest houses and flats.
During years 1 and 2, the Grande Ecole Program allows students to discover management fundamentals, transversality, cooperation, and soft skills. Year 3 is 100% international, with a semester in a partner university and an internship abroad. Years 4 and 5 are dedicated to specialisation, acquiring expertise, and building a professional project.
