“I am delighted to see this school develop and acquire an impressive stature, and that it has found its place in the big leagues. I notice that you have taken up three challenges: – positioning the school under the sign of international openness from the very start, the bet of remaining open and connected to the realities of business in relation to changes in the economy and the challenge of openness to the major challenges of the agricultural, management, digital and geopolitics industries”.
