Business collaboration

Throughout the year, each campus offers meetings with businesses in order to connect students and business managers with a view to facilitating their professional integration. The business relations department organises dedicated events to further develop and foster partnerships. Student associations also organise various events in association with the network of partner companies.


Events organised by the business relations department

My Way: Student Orientation days / Career guidance

Those days are essential in the students’ journey at KEDGE. Different departments are represented resulting in a unique experience:  the Career Centre, the Business Relations Department, “the Learning By Doing”, the Alumni.

They are entirely dedicated to career guidance and employability.

 During these days, we organise conferences on future professional opportunities, recruitment methods and the current job market.

These are privileged moments to prepare your internship or job search, build and/or develop your network, meet graduates and recruiters from partners’ companies.

They take place twice yearly and are followed the next day by a business forum during which interested employers come to recruit for internship, work-study or fulltime employment.

Recruitment Forums

Enterprises Forum: Each year, the enterprises forum organises a recruitment event with the participation of over 100 businesses and 200 recruiters looking to recruit for internship, contract or permanent employment.

Work-study forum: KEDGEs’ partner companies are present to offer work-study opportunities.

Student associations and their network of partner companies

Student associations also organise various events to connect students and professionals through sporting and cultural events such as:
