PUBLICATION : International management students, an asset for French companies

May 23, 2024

 

According to the latest report from Campus France, France's attractiveness as a destination for education remains undiminished. In 2022-2023, 412,087 foreign students were enrolled in French higher education, an increase of 17% over 5 years. The number of foreign students in business schools has risen the most: +80% in 5 years.

Commissioned by the CDEFM, the EDHEC NewGen Talent Centre has conducted the first study on international student profiles at major French business schools. With over 2,000 respondents of 118 different nationalities, this study reflects the diversity of international management students in France.

INTERVENTION : How do you recruit and retain the younger generation?

May 1, 2024

 

Contrary to popular belief, young people's vision of the corporate world is generally positive: they see it as a place conducive to projects, progress and innovation, according to Manuelle Malot, Director of Careers and NewGen Talent Centre at EDHEC. Aware of today's challenges, however, young people aspire to organizations that are more responsible, more ethical, less hierarchical, favoring flexible working methods and collaborative projects, but also employee well-being and a good working atmosphere. These are essential criteria for attracting and retaining young talent. Find out more about their expectations and career aspirations in this video by Manuelle Malot, Career Director and NewGen Talent Centre at EDHEC.

This workshop investigates the career aspirations of young Ys (born between 1981 and 1986) and Zs (born between the end of the 90s and 2010) to better understand their expectations, better integrate them into the company and build their loyalty.
It aims to identify young people's societal commitments, particularly with regard to the environment, in order to better understand the demands they place on business in the face of climate change. In particular, to better understand the place and role of public services in society in their eyes (particularly in view of the Pacte law) and the place and role of public water services in tomorrow's society.

STUDY: WHAT IF PREP SCHOOL WAS THE PLACE TO LEARN SELF-CONFIDENCE?

November 14, 2023
 

Convinced of the importance of education and the positive impact of the younger generation on the world, we are committed to informing the debate on career choices and professional projects through rigorous surveys conducted over more than 10 years on thousands of young students. So, to help answer the question of choosing a preparatory class, we thought it would be useful to interview young preparatory students and ask them the same questions that pupils at the end of their secondary education would ask themselves...
Why did they choose this path? What subjects did they hesitate to choose? What did they really learn in preparatory classes? Were they happy there? Did they continue to pursue an activity outside their studies and what advice do they have for secondary school students on how to succeed in their studies?

Against a backdrop of talent shortages, young graduates are in greater demand than ever before, across all sectors, functions, sizes and types of organisation. This unprecedented situation, which is set to last until 2030 given the demographics, is reinforced by a profound change in the career aspirations of young graduates and their relationship to work. 
All sectors have major recruitment needs, and sometimes a shortage of applicants in terms of both volume and diversity. At the same time, young people's career ambitions are taking on more varied forms: civic engagement and entrepreneurship are now just as important as a traditional career.

STUDY: MYTHS AND REALITIES OF THE AUDIT PROFESSION

October 10, 2023
 

Although the audit sector is recruiting, there are many preconceived ideas about its professions which can prevent young graduates from applying for job vacancies. Mazars has teamed up with the EDHEC NewGen Talent Centre to conduct a survey of students and recent graduates with no knowledge or experience of the audit profession, in order to understand better perceptions of the audit profession. At the same time, the study compared their responses with those of young auditors in post. The results deconstruct preconceived ideas about the auditing profession and reveal differences in perceptions of the useful skills and working conditions.

NEWGEN NEWJOB: 2022 BAROMETER OF FIRST JOB ISSUES

18 March 2022

 

Since 2019, social and environmental issues have been the favorite subjects of the younger generations. Today this trend is reflected concretely in their career orientation: the societal impact is becoming a key criterion in the choice of their employer.

Far from being an epiphenomenon, the societal impact of jobs will have a lasting effect on the employer brand, which must be consistent with the raison d'être and change the content of positions so that they more clearly serve the general interest.

The fifth episode of EDHEC Vox Podcast is dedicated to the engagement of young employees in companies today.

It asks the following questions:

  • What are the new aspirations of the younger generation?

In this podcast, you'll discover how younger generations define engagement and how companies are embracing the topic. Finally, you'll discover how a company's purpose can improve the engagement dynamics of its younger employees.
