The “Jury’s Special prize” was awarded to Carole Donada (Management Department). Among the 10 preferred Professors chosen by the students, the Committee decided to distinguish Carole for the quality of her teaching evaluations in a variety of programs.

The Screening Committee of the ESSEC Foundation met and assigned The “Daniel Tixier Award” of pedagogical experience to Junko Takagi (Management Department) for the ​”Programme Expérience d’une Organisation​”​ that she organized for all students of the Pre-Master year of the Grande Ecole.
