Solucom and the Télécom Foundation recently signed a new three-year partnership agreement, reinforcing the ties between this leading consultancy firm and IMT’s graduate schools (Télécom ParisTech, Télécom Bretagne, Télécom SudParis, Télécom Ecole Management). This agreement includes both recruitment opportunities for young graduates and a program of long-term support for our graduate schools in areas including training, research and innovation.

In addition to the high-profile events held on all Télécom campuses to introduce students to the firm and its activities, this new partnership will allow Solucom to play an active role in the Foundation’s various development programs, becoming the latest in our network of partner companies.

Solucom’s contributions will be particularly focused on supporting the efforts of IMT’s graduate schools to support students as they define their career objectives and seek to gain a greater understanding of the professional opportunities available in the digital economy.

Solucom will also make a contribution to the funding of the Foundation’s network-wide development initiatives: business creation and incubation, doctoral scholarships in priority subjects, forward-looking studies into the major themes which will shape the future of our digital society, conducted in partnership with the Future Digital Think Tank. This Think Tank works on a variety of key strategic topics, such as the impact of managers on the digital evolution of companies and the rise of new digital business models – subjects falling squarely within Solucom’s areas of expertise.

Guy Roussel, President of the Télécom Foundation, was proud to announce this new partnership, at a time when the links between academia and business have become more crucial than ever before to the continued economic development of our country: “the Foundation is delighted to welcome Solucom to the fold, a major contributor to the evolution of our sector with an impressive portfolio of clients. We are particularly pleased that Solucom has made a long-term commitment to supporting the development of our graduate schools and helping to maintain their current level of excellence.”

Solucom: a strong, long-term connection to the Télécom graduate schools

As Pascal Imbert, a graduate of the Ecole Polytechnique (1977) and Télécom ParisTech (1982), co-founder and President of Solucom, explains: “Solucom has always maintained strong connections with the Institute Mines-Télécom. As we continue to work at the cutting edge of technological development in the French economy, we felt it was important to reinforce our relationship with the Institute Mines-Télécom’s graduate schools, which offer the most consistently excellent level of training in digital technologies.”
