#3 : 5 Success Stories from KEDGE graduates
"The innovations of 2025 will be made by those in training today."
Give KEDGE master students (finance, logistics, health, purchasing, design, etc.) the opportunity to meet your innovation challenges by entrusting them with a task through KEDGE's Open Innovation certificate scheme, in collaboration with the engineers at Epitech.
Working in transdisciplinary teams of four to five over a period of one month, and supervised by an expert coach, students will respond to a complex innovation challenge set by your company.
Through an inductive teaching method, the students are trained in the concepts necessary for the assignment to run smoothly.
This system has proved its worth in nearly 180 companies of all sizes (from start-ups to major groups).
If you want to increase your ability to innovate and capture value, offer YOUR COMPANY’S TASK to our students without further delay.
A sample task entrusted by Airbus in 2020:
"What are the possible uses of Artificial Intelligence / Deep Learning & Chatbot for customer support activities?”
The hybrid team (initial and continuing education students from KEDGE) and a transdisciplinary team (managers and engineers from EPITECH) were able to respond effectively to Airbus' expectations. "The results obtained in 23 days of the Challenge, without any contact with current innovation projects and without the help of Airbus experts (per the rules at the outset of the mission) were astounding and in line with our approaches to the development of new digital products".
Process and dates to remember if you wish to offer a task
1 – Complete the task sheet before 31 January.
2 - If you are selected (approximately 30 assignments per year), the company tutor must be available on 1 March from 5 pm to 8 pm for the project launch, and on 26 March for the final presentation.
3 - Given the difficult economic situation that many companies are experiencing, KEDGE has decided to offer this scheme to companies free of charge this year. However, if you wish to support the school and its learners, we warmly welcome donations made to Fondation KEDGE. Funds collected will be paid out in the form of study grants to our students.
