IÉSEG is delighted to announce that the ACCOR Group will sponsor the next graduating class of the Grande École Program.

The two organizations, which have already been working together for a number of years, are thus reinforcing their ongoing collaboration. During this year of sponsorship, ACCOR will participate in events for students and alumni (corporate talks, recruitment sessions, interventions in classes , career fairs, company visits, etc.).

With its sustained international growth and over 7,200 internship and employment opportunities available, ACCOR provides great career opportunities to students.

This new partnership also makes sense because of the two organizations’ shared values.

The graduation ceremony (Saturday, May 16th at Espace ViParis in La Défense), sponsored by Laurent Picheral, Group Chief Transformation Officer, will bring this year of collaboration to a close.

“Being the sponsor of the IÉSEG Grande Ecole Program graduating class represents a lot to me, both personally and professionally, as well as to the ACCOR Group. IÉSEG is a true source of ‘high potentials’ and of positive energy that is just waiting to be expressed in all of our “Augmented Hospitality” professions. It is a real pleasure to be with the students and to accompany those who wish to get involved in innovative projects that push the boundaries.

“It is an honor to support them and to contribute to shedding light on the hospitality sector. We will be present throughout the year, alongside IÉSEG students during masterclasses, course presentations, and regular exchanges. They will also have the opportunity to challenge their creativity during a Hackathon. We are happy to work with the students, to watch them apply and develop their know-how and their soft skills (‘savoir être).”
