After he had earned his advanced technician’s diploma (BTS) in Insurance and worked at AEP
– "Assurance Epargne Pension" - for 8 years, Richard needed a change of scenery and a new job.
In 2014, he then joined Haas Gestion, subsidiary of Nortia Group.
As he had been thinking about challenging himself and going back to school for a few years now,
he focused his research towards IÉSEG’s executive programs, on the advice of his professional
colleagues, and chose the Executive "Mastère Spécialisé® Direction Financière".
Indeed, nearly all Nortia Group’s management is graduated from IÉSEG!
IÉSEG is delighted to announce that it has gained 5-year renewal of its accreditation from AACSB
International — the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. First gained in AACSB
accreditation in 2013, IÉSEG continue to be part of the elite group of international business
schools (less than 1% in the world) that hold the “triple crown” of international accreditations
(AMBA, AACSB, EQUIS). Among several things, this accreditation strengthens the value of the IÉSEG
Diploma in the eyes of French and worldwide companies. We especially thank the alumni who came
sometimes from far away to meet the AACSB auditors last November and who proudly represented our School.
Last December, we presented our inter-alumni mentoring concept. Through this approach you shall be
asked to give support and share your expertise and knowledge with alumni who need it. More than just
bonding with alumni, it will give you the opportunity to help others who are pondering over their career path.
So, we have developed a registration form
for those who would like to become mentors. This form
will enable you to provide your services as mentor, by clearly defining your expertise and the fields
in which you will be able to bring help to other alumni.

From concept to reality there is only one step …that Thomas decided to take. The service was launched in 2015
and has more than 10000 subscribers and 750 cars available almost everywhere in France.
