Around 4,000 people (graduates, students, and their families…) gathered on Saturday, May 25th at the Zenith Arena in Lille for the School’s 50th graduation ceremony (Grande École program) and the pre-graduation ceremony for the Bachelor in International Business (BIB) and ‘Postgraduate’ program students (Masters of Science, MBA ).
The event, sponsored by Michelin, represented by Jean-Michel Guillon (Chief Innovation Officer, Michelin) started in the morning with the “pre-graduation” ceremony for the BIB and Postgraduate programs.
These programs are taught in English and gather students from all over the world. They were all invited on the stage to celebrate the end of their academic classes at the School. At the end of the ceremony, five students also gave a speech, each one focusing on one of the School’s values: Accomplishment, Responsibility, Integrity, Solidarity, and Engagement.
The afternoon was dedicated to students graduating from the 50th class of the School’s historic Grande Ecole program.
Each graduate received their Programme Grande École diploma from: Jean-Michel Guillon; Thérèse Lebrun, Vice Rector, Université Catholique de Lille; Marc Delozanne, Chairman of the Board of Trustees at IÉSEG, Nicolas Messio, President, IÉSEG Network (alumni association); and Jean-Philippe Ammeux, Director of IÉSEG.
Congratulations again to all our graduates of the 50th class/promotion and to the postgraduate/BIB students who will soon join the IÉSEG Alumni network!
