[IÉSEG] Focus on the 15 days of the IÉSEG Oral Exams

Each year, IÉSEG organizes on its campus in Lille the famous oral exams which are the last step for high school students to know if they will join the school and become IÉSEG students. This year, they took place between May 10 to May 20 and gathered the admissions after high school as well as the admissions for students who will integrate IÉSEG in 3rd, 4th year and the ones who want to join IÉSEG apprenticeship programs. This event gathered more than 480 professionals including 275 alumni.
We thank all the alumni who had the time to participate. It was also a good opportunity for them to discover or re-discover the school buildings, to bring back some memories from their IÉSEG years and sometimes even meet up with some classmates. This interesting experience, suitable for the expansion of everyone's network, will unfold on both Lille & Paris campuses next year!
