Inventing the future starts with looking at the present, differently
Students are increasingly demanding in their choice of education, looking for both impact and meaning in their careers. The environmental and societal impact of the school they choose is therefore of great importance. At Rennes School of Business, it is our mission is to reveal managerial talents in a multiverse world and become one of the most innovative, responsible and resilient Business Schools in Europe.
On both a pedagogical and institutional level, Rennes SB is dedicated to integrating issues of transition within the school. Student events such as the Climate Fresco and the Diversity Fresco give students the opportunity to learn about diversity and equality in the workplace, and the real cost of climate change on our society, encouraging them to take a different approach to business, while fully taking into account the impact of the individual, and the corporation.
Students then have the opportunity to put these thoughts into practice during events such as the Design Sprint, in partnership with Orange, an event with a focus on digital responsibility during which students come up with innovative solutions to business problems in this industry. Organised in partnership with Destination Rennes, the Rennes Impact Challenge is another example of an event during which students visit the city of Rennes and propose projects that could be implemented in order to make it a more sustainable destination.
Through these initiatives, Rennes SB encourages its students to look for answers to tomorrow’s questions, reflecting on how to design a future that’s more inventive, more creative, and ultimately, more human.
Now more than ever, the world belongs to the open-minded.
