Thomas RIEGEL, HR Director, L´Oréal LuxuryWe use Company Consultancy Projects at ESCP in two ways: as input for our projects and, at the same time, as a recruitment tool.

The quality of the results and the commitment of the students have been excellent - so much so that we hired some of the students involved.
