HEC Liège is a strategic institution in the region of Liège, as confirmed by the BSIS assessment conducted in 2015, with a great national and international reputation.
The reason for undergoing the BSIS process was to reaffirm the school’s impact three years after the initial labelling and to trace the improvements.
Michel Kalika, the BSIS co-Director said: “The school stands out thanks to the quality of their faculty, the involvement of their alumni, and executive education for the local and international companies. While the school is attracting local and international students, 74 % of their staff is from the region, which has a significantly beneficial impact on the local economy.”
Michel Kalika went on to highlight the school’s enrichment of the regional economy: “HEC Liège participates in various projects linked to the establishment of companies. Four companies and five spin-offs have been created by professors leading to the creation of 70 new jobs.”
The close cooperation among the professors and the local economies enriches the local ecosystem and represents a strong reciprocal advantage.
About the Business School Impact System
The Business School Impact System (BSIS) scheme is designed to determine the extent of a school’s impact upon its local environment – the city or region in which it is located. The BSIS process is offered in a joint venture between EFMD Global Network and FNEGE as a service to EFMD members in any part of the world.
