TSE Junior Etudes is a mix of a student organization and a company, which allows our members to develop their professional skills before entering the job market. Our Junior Etudes belongs to the national movement of Junior-Entreprises (JE) led by the Confédération National des Junior Entreprises (CNJE). Our JE is currently working on data analysis, legal information, modelling of annual revenue, or even on the testing of economic models. Last year we had a mission that helped the offshoring of a company to another country, and we advised them to find new jobs for their employees taking into account their skills, area preferences, and family lives.
Say It Aloud was founded on a rather simple idea: TSE needed a forum where students could share their beliefs and discuss them. This way a small group of friends–pretty shy at first–gathered together and created Say It Aloud. They were thinking big. They decided it would be fun to organize conferences on various topics, to create a debating society and to run a public speaking workshop.
Another year has started, and with it a new generation of TSE students has arrived to Toulouse from mid-August. To celebrate the new school year, the administration had its usual welcome talks and lunch on September 11th. Following the tradition, there was an opening lecture at the end of the day. This year, Nicolas Werquin, an assistant professor at TSE, was in charge of the lecture.
During the spring of 1978, a young researcher fresh from a Harvard PhD had the idea to create a high-level centre of economic research in his hometown, Toulouse. His name was Jean-Jacques Laffont. In 1979, he returned to Toulouse and laid the foundations for what would become the Toulouse School of Economics.
As higher education becomes increasingly prevalent in our digital age, obtaining a master’s degree is becoming almost ubiquitous. This has led students to stay in the same location for an extended period of time—sometimes in the city in which they grew up. This may lead to a narrowness of mind arising from the lack of exposure to different cultures, which is heavily discounted in our globalised age.
If you thought that the integration weekend, the pubcrawl and the Halloween party couldn’t be topped, get ready to be dazzled by what we have in store for you! Let us not forget our beloved graduates, who are coming back to the city in November to receive their diploma, and celebrate in true Toulouse style one last time. The word around town says that there will be more networking going on at the graduation party than at the BND. Never forget: a drunken alumnus is an internship seeker’s best friend.
