On 20th of September, the early birds of our three masters intake (MBA, MBQPM and MMCoM) gathered to get a “Taste of Solvay” before the beginning of the courses.
The purpose of this meeting ? Discover the school spirit, the Belgium culture but also their future classmates!
“We choose you carefully and you choose us carefully, and we will give you the tools to succeed: a faculty, a method and a network.”
Inspiring and pragmatic at the same time, prof Baeyens, warns the students “If you want to learn old management go to Google, here we teach you how to manage the future.”
Indeed regardless each specificity of the masters, they all aim to share the same basis: a critical thinking; an outstanding rigor and discipline; opportunities for all and an entrepreneurial spirit.
The learning by doing attitude is part of Solvay’s success!
Helene Lambillon – Chief Operation Manager of Solvay Vietnam, invited our newcomers to evaluate their knowledge about the home country of Solvay.
Entertaining but nevertheless demanding, the short quizz covered as well the Belgian royalty, football matters or culinaries specialties. This challenging moment was a great time to learn and laugh about the numerous puzzled reactions!
Taste of Solvay finally took end around a friendly networking cocktail where everybody got to know each other. We wish our students will enjoy their Belgium souvenir that will be for sure the continuity of a Taste of Solvay, but most important we hope they already feel as part of our Solvay community.
We are looking forward to welcome each of you!
