Although they follow an intense MBA schedule, they still make time for incredible extra-curricular activities. From the Social Impact and Diversity Club that tackles issues of sustainability and diversity. To the Entrepreneurship Club that focusses on all aspects of entrepreneurship.        

In fact, five members of the Entrepreneurship Club, Sri Krishna Palabathuni, Rustem Ospanov, Tom Mullee, Shiva Kumar Dundi, and Hashika Lalla, recently participated in the annual Renewable Energy Case Competition held during the Ross Energy week hosted by the Energy Club at Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, where they took 3rd place win.      

The EDHEC Global MBA Social Impact and Diversity Club is aimed towards gaining deeper insights into the dimensions of sustainability including the key dimension of DE&I.
