The KEDGE BS Foundation for Responsible Management, placed under the aegis of the Fondation de France, was created in 2010 on the initiative of four companies who wished to pool their resources to support the development of the KEDGE BS School:
- AXA Assurances,
- Société Marseillaise de Crédit,
- the ONET Group
- and the Mediterranean Network Department of BNP Paribas
Always aligned with KEDGE's strategic pillars, the KEDGE BS Foundation's mission is to support students throughout their studies by offering them a service of academic excellence, well-being and pedagogical innovation. In concrete terms, the Foundation transfers funds from corporate and alumni donations to students through social scholarships, entrepreneurial scholarships and funds the Ecole Entrepreneuriale and research chairs.
📚In 2022, corporate philanthropy represented 350K€ used to finance social scholarships for students in great precariousness, as well as the Ecole Entrepreneuriale equal opportunity program, which over 3 years trains young people who have dropped out of school to create their own jobs. A research chair has also received 90K€, aimed at developing new methods, techniques and concepts for organization and decision-making in the fields of supply chain, operations management and transport.
