A successful second wave of arrivals at Rennes School of Business following implementation of its health plan
Rennes School of Business reopened access to its campus to all students on Monday 5 October.
Thanks to their agile management and ability to adapt according to information from local indicators in close collaboration with the Regional Health Agency (ARS), Rennes School of Business was able to ensure the continuation of 100% of its classes online over the last two weeks.
On Monday 5 October 2020, the School has returned to face-to-face classes and all association and student activities have resumed, whilst respecting health rules. ELive lessons have begun in twenty classrooms and fifteen multi-purpose and multi-user meeting rooms that have been designed for a hybrid teaching experience.
Following the collective success of the School’s SAFER plan (Secure Access For Entry Return), the School has been able to ensure the best possible conditions for all students at the beginning of this academic year, whilst effectively contributing to preventing the spread of coronavirus in the Rennes metropolitan area. The Rennes School of Business campus is already respecting government instructions to universities and business schools by limiting the number of students on campus to a maximum of 50% of the normal on-site attendance rate.
According to Thomas Froehlicher, Director General and Dean of Rennes School of Business: “The successful reopening of our campus, and our anticipated regulatory measures, demonstrate that our well-prepared strategy has enabled us to effectively deal with changes in the situation by providing a safe campus for students and staff, whilst also guaranteeing high-quality educational continuity, both digitally and face-to-face.”
Following the initiative of public authorities, a Covid-19 testing centre was opened on the Rennes School of Business campus on Monday 28 September. The centre will remain in place for at least another week, allowing up to 800 students from Rennes to be tested daily.
