picto-rse-csrCSR @IÉSEG

Based on a global approach (which takes into account the diversity of the CSR dimensions and considers their very close interrelationships) and a voluntary approach (of co-design, co-construction and co-realization involving all of its stakeholders), IÉSEG has defined and implemented a CSR strategy which has become one of the five strategic orientations of the School.   

Anchored in its DNA, CSR is thus integrated into all areas of the School: course content, faculty research activities, responsible campus actions, and the daily life of the School. The entire ecosystem is involved: employees, students, graduates and partners from the socio-economic world.

With 323 partner universities from 75 countries around the world, our students can also go on academic exchange anywhere in the world.  

This pedagogical approach also includes intercultural training sessions, involving exchanges and educational activities between students from different cultures.

picto-facultyThe expertise of our professors

Research and international collaboration have been an essential part of IÉSEG’s DNA since its creation. Thanks to the quality and reputation of its faculty, the School attracts international professors and researchers from all over the world who publish the results of their research in leading international scientific journals.  

Furthermore, IÉSEG fundamentally believes that teaching and research complete each other, and allow for stronger interactions with companies and other stakeholders. IÉSEG’s permanent professors therefore conduct both research and teaching activities.
