ESSCA is highly committed to the development of its participation in associations
The objective is to ensure the well-being of the students, to make them responsible and help them to develop through enriching, inspiring projects.
An associative commitment, a plus for the CV
The management of an association is a concrete approach to the functioning of an organisation. Teamwork, definition of objectives and management of the human, financial and material resources to be implemented are all exercises to develop one’s talents as a manager in a company. Getting involved in an association also means enriching your CV and arousing the interest of a recruiter when looking for an internship or a job.
This participation provides an enriching experience, highly complementary to studies: project management, solidarity, team work, learning to manage responsibilities and, very simply, the pleasure of working together and being useful. Participating in associations gives students the opportunity to put internal democracy into practice: consensus building and debates within the school allow our students to become active, responsible players in society.
