Students on Masters in Management programs are keen to work on initiatives in which they can have a positive impact on society or the environment.
At HEC, one student co-founded an organization dedicated to social and environmental impact in India. Another broke a Guinness World Record for the longest journey on a motorized bicycle, so as to raise awareness of opportunities in solar energy and clean transportation.
But some choose traditional jobs in procurement or at consulting firms, yet still have an impact. “They are reinventing completely the way they carry out ‘traditional’ business tasks,” says HEC Paris Professor Jeremy Ghez.
