Adrien, X 2005 and Alexandre, HEC and Subodh, IIM Ahmedabad, winner of the Best Research Essay Award
With his team, consisting of Alexandre, a 3rd year student at HEC, and Subodh, a 2nd year student at Ahmedabad IIM, Adrien, X 2005, won the Renault-XHEC multicultural management chair first prize for the best research dissertation on the theme of “Multicultural management and company performance”.
Adrien: I don't know whether my career will enable me to do such advanced field work again. However, the greatest lesson that the internship taught me was this: in a company, sound knowledge of life in the field and the basic trades is a must!
Alexandre: Curiosity and an open attitude to others were vital in trying to understand the mentalities first of all and then how business was done. The experience provided us with some unforgettable encounters and made me want to do more work on transverse subjects, possibly abroad.
