HEC’s response to societal and environmental issues



Challenges – Why did you leave Sciences Po Paris in 2021 to join the HEC school?

Yann Algan – After having participated in the creation of the economics department of Sciences Po Paris with Jean-Paul Fitoussi and Richard Descoings, then taking the direction of the school of public affairs, I wanted to take a step aside, discover another ecosystem with a training related to societal issues. However, I think that companies have a big role to play in terms of digital transition, global warming and the fight against inequalities. They must be at the forefront, otherwise we will not succeed. There are also very high expectations from young people. The company has become a total political object.

What precisely can the role of a business school be in such a context?
