The AGIRES SYNERGIE Trophies reward high-quality collaboration between businesses and higher education institutions and aim to boost the impact, innovation and dynamism of relations between the two.
The businesses in the running comprised the 30 companies belonging to the Synergie Campus Entreprises association, as well as those registering for the trophies or selected by the schools for the quality of their relationship.
The competing higher education institutions comprised the 100 establishments belonging to the AGIRES DEVELOPPEMENT association, as well as those also chosen by businesses for the quality and innovation of their relationship.
EDHEC obtained first place out of the 141 competing institutions and won the “Creator of Business Relations” Trophy for the 2021 edition on 12 June.
The voters recognised the sense of service characterising EDHEC’s relations with its corporate partners and its particularly innovative corporate relations department, acknowledged for its flexibility and focus on listening to businesses so as to best attend to their needs.
This first place also further consolidates the values of excellence, ambition, adaptability and reactivity upheld by the Careers & Employer Engagement team, which supports all of EDHEC’s students and corporate partners on a daily basis.
“This prize rewards the strong and long-lasting relations with our partners, nurtured by the Employer Engagement team, as well as the broad range of services offered to employers, ranging from recruitment to talent development. It is a recognition to our collaborative work, notably within Careers & Employer Engagement but also with the Programmes and faculty, and to our commitment to help both employers and students achieve their goals.”
