EDHEC MSc in Global & Sustainable Business: Group Master Projects.


“Who are the 3 companies collaborating on case studies with EDHEC students from the MSc Global & Sustainable Business?”


[Emmanuel Mannooretonil. Vice president of New Business & Innovation at Butagaz]
Hello, My name is Emmanuel Mannooretonil
I'm the Vice President of New Business & Innovation at Butagaz.
We are an energy supplier, we are pretty proud to sponsor EDHEC's MSc in Global & Sustainable Business.


[Simon Locke. Sustainable Design Innovation Manager at The Body Shop.]
My name is Simon Locke, I'm from The Body Shop International and my focus is around sustainable innovation and Future Thinking at The Body Shop.

“What were your highlights?”
[Leanne Lim. EDHEC Student in MSc Global & Sustainable Business]
Different companies want different things from students. So I think it is really good that these projects force us to know that expectations of a company differ depending on what their priorities are. And it is good for us to have that business sense of it.
Having a practical way of learning rather than just textbook learning.


[Fabrio Pedrazzoli. EDHEC Student in MSc Global & Sustainable Business]
I think the most important thing for me was to work in a team. That's why I love this project. We all come from different nationalities. We have different backgrounds. And it's not always easy to work in a multicultural team.


We have the ability to work with students in an academic partnership where they have time to think and reflect. I think one of the common issues we have within business,
we don't have time to do that. We are quite often stuck in our own ways of thinking.
So it is really refreshing for us, to set students a challenge and to really ask them to question how we operate as a business. And to give us ideas and hopes for the future.


We find some common themes between ideas. Which are of interest for Butagaz,
for Oney and for The Body Shop. That's very enlightening. It's also inspiring
for us to get ideas from the outside world into our teams to drive innovations.
See how they have started to really master their topic, but also see how they have gone from understanding a market, a business developing tangible solutions. 


I was really surprised about the quality of the different jobs that the students have done, and also very concrete ideas that we can imagine to put in action tomorrow at Oney.
