As with all business schools, our 22 student associations create a vibrant student life. Nearly 700 events are organized every year with budgets of up to 500,000 euros and teams of up to 60 students.
Taking part in student associations is almost an unavoidable requirement for a successful and flourishing student experience. Student associations help students integrate the school, try out various professional activities, meet and exchange with others… Student associations are first and foremost about the unique, interpersonal adventures they foster.
Student association curriculum option
During year 2, students may apply for this option in order to spend every afternoon working on a student association project for one semester. As part of our differentiated learning process, this option counts towards your degree and will be evaluated.
Support and training
Any student involved in a student association can participate in a 15 day training course when taking on responsibilities in an association. Students have training credits that can be used throughout the year. Various challenges are covered during the training courses: IT development, financial management, communication, theater, negotiation, culture shock, etc.
