iae savoie mont blanc - iae annecy - iae chambéry

Our recent “A&B International student conference” (4-5 April, 2024) between IAE (L2 ESPRI), USMB (France) and Birmingham Business School (University of Birmingham, UK) was a tremendous success, showcasing research and initiative of students from diverse backgrounds and celebrating their exchanges.

Throughout the conference, students had the opportunity to exchange ideas, share experiences, and build meaningful connections with peers and mentors alike. From exploring emerging trends to tackling pressing demographical issues facing our world today, every session was a testament to their passion and creativity.
We congratulate the enthusiasm, energy, and dedication demonstrated by all participants and we congratulate particularly our winners.
