Dear Alumni,

We hope that you and your loved ones are in good health. We're asking you to consider two opportunities where you can make a difference to students and graduates today.
Who could have imagined, when we met the EDHEC Alumni Ambassadors in Paris at the beginning of February to share our 2020-2025 strategy, that only a few weeks later half of the world’s population would be confined, that working from home would become a standard, and that, for the first time in our entire history, EDHEC would have to close its five campuses – not just in Lille, Nice, Paris, but also in London and Singapore?

As the crisis has unfolded we, like each one of you, have had to adapt to these challenging times. As of March 25th, we successfully switched all of our programmes and courses online, and all support services continue to work remotely. Faculty and staff have ensured that EDHEC continues to deliver the best education and experience.
Since then, we have been truly impressed by the response of our community to this global situation.

Today, we would like to ask for your help in supporting the journey of students and young graduates impacted by this crisis. As you know, all of our students must complete internships as part of their programme. Similarly, our final year students (Master, BBA and MBA) are already searching for full time jobs.
Together, we can show them what it means to be part of this amazing EDHEC community — not just during their studies, but for a lifetime. For this reason, we ask you to consider these two opportunities where you can make a difference now

  1. Sponsor a student (Master, BBA and MBA) / young graduate. We are looking for alumni volunteers to participate in virtual, one-on-one chats with EDHEC students / young graduates, based on the expertise you would be ready to offer as a sponsor and your availability. If you would like to volunteer for this, please sign-up as a sponsor by clicking on the SPONSOR button in the specific “Job hunting support scheme” email that you received pon May, the 13th. For any question, please contact: job.hunting.support@edhec.com  

  2. Hire our students (Master, BBA and MBA) / young graduates. The Career Centre for Life is looking for organisations interested in hiring EDHEC students for internships or full-time jobs. If you have any opportunity or any hint about the hidden market that would be relevant for our EDHEC students and graduates, the Careers & Employer Engagement team can work with you to promote them. Just send us your offers at edhec.careers@edhec.com and we will share them with the right target.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. You all make us feel so #ProudlyEDHEC 

Stay assured you can all rely on the EDHEC community. More than ever today, in this challenging and uncertain times, let us come together as a community to Impact Future Generations!
