What's new in our community?
Sciences Po Paris, as a new user of Sulitest, organized a conference on the importance and challenges of Sulitest, in the presence of Ambassador Pierre Schulz. The students of this school will soon have to take the test to test their knowledge!
In order to evaluate their level of knowledge of the SDGs, and for the first time this year, all students of the HEC Grande Ecole Program took the Sulitest!
" It is a way for us to compare ourselves to other grandes écoles in France and around the world on four major areas of sustainability, and to adapt our teaching methods accordingly ," said Rodolphe Durand, Professor of Strategy and Business Policy at HEC's Grande Ecole.
More than 1,500 second-year Grande Ecole students take the Sulitest as part of the Global Knowledge Economy Talents seminar.
" This multicampus seminar, (France, Brazil, China, United States) aims to prepare our students for their academic or professional internationalization by raising their awareness of societal and environmental issues. We plan to develop the application of the Sulitest with our teaching as of next year, as it is part of our "Think Beyond Borders" strategy encouraging our students to go beyond geographical, intellectual and multicultural boundaries in their thinking about today's professional challenges " said Manon Duponchelle, Quality & CSR project manager.
