The School has decided to put in place a symbolical recognition of engagement, open to all students starting in BA2.

Where can you get involved?

From defending students' rights to bicycle repair workshops and film enthusiasts' associations, you can get involved in all kinds of projects!

If you want to get involved within the faculty, we invite you to take a look at the Cercle Solvay, Bureau Solvay, Campus Recrutement or Solvay Business Game pages. There is a plethora of active associations just within the faculty!

For more information, don't hesitate to visit the ULB Engaged page and to consult the Terro booklet, which presents many of ULB's committed initiatives.

Engagement at the SBS-EM

For some years now, the Faculty has been committed to educate the people who will transform society. To guide itself, the school has drawn up a compass comprising four categories of key knowledge and skills:

Student’s engagement falls into the 'Action' category. Through their associative activities, students can put the other three categories into practice.
