ENSAE Alumni Association

The activities of the ENSAE Alumni Association contribute to the reputation of the School and its degrees and aim above all to maintain and strengthen the links between its members. They aim to promote exchanges within the alumni community, organize thematic events and share experiences and professional opportunities. 

These initiatives benefit young graduates as well as students through the mentoring system. 

Two important areas of commitment concern the support of alumni throughout their careers and the promotion of gender parity.

It is a lively platform, which publishes 2 to 3 articles per week, alternating between insights on in-depth subjects and lighter contributions. This platform is freely accessible on the web.
