  • training
  • strategy and governance
  • employability and academic excellence
  • diversity and inclusion
  • community life
  • the network of graduates in impact-driven professions

IÉSEG came in 1st place for the “Alumni network with an impact” criterion, and improved particularly on the “training”, “community life” and “employability and academic excellence” criteria.

The 2023 ChangeNOW / Les Echos START ranking perfectly illustrates IÉSEG’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, inclusion, diversity and sustainable development.

This third place is also the reward for the bold decisions made by IÉSEG to minimize the school’s impact on the world, and in particular the impact of its students’ international exchanges and internships abroad, which account for 65% of the School’s carbon footprint.
