At INSEEC, we have been convinced for more than 20 years that the associative experience brings a real human, societal and professional added value to our students and to society. Each year, more and more of our students get involved in one of the associations that animate our campuses. Focus today on the Alain Kabulo Social and Cultural Center, an international solidarity association working in the Democratic Republic of Congo in which INSEEC MSc & MBA students and alumni participate.
The importance of associative life at INSEEC
To invest in an association at INSEEC is to ensure continuous learning of know-how and life skills. Meeting new people, sharing values, working together on causes that are important to them, contributing to the construction of a better world… These are all reasons why our students volunteer in an INSEEC association. Convinced of the need for community involvement, our Bachelor’s, BBA and Grande Ecole programs integrate community life into their teaching methods. INSEEC’s MSc & MBA students are also involved in associations that are important to them, an approach that is largely encouraged by the importance of soft skills in the pedagogical engineering of our programs.
What is the Alain Kabulo Social and Cultural Center?
The Alain KABULO Social and Cultural Center is an association of international solidarity which aims to support, promote and initiate social, cultural and educational development actions in sub-Saharan Africa, more precisely in Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The social and cultural center was founded by the eponymous creator Alain KABULO, CEO of Alka Consulting, lecturer in MSc & MBA of INSEEC … and especially Alumni of the school!
Students’ investment in the association
A dozen volunteer students from INSEEC’s MSc & MBA programs have been involved in the association for a little over a year. In addition to their coursework and corporate experience, our students take time to participate in a cause that is important to them as part of their curriculum. Cindy FITTE-DUVAL, a student in MSc Marketing, Communication & Business Strategies and invested in the association, states:
Participer à une association qui a du sens permet aussi de s’ouvrir sur d’autres horizons professionnels et de comprendre d’autres réalités sociales. S’engager dans une aventure humanitaire, c’est aussi une satisfaction morale d’avoir apporté sa pierre à la construction d’un monde meilleur. Ce sont les valeurs que portent aussi notre école, voilà pourquoi nous les soutenons et voulons les partager avec vous !
The student volunteers have undertaken the construction of a cultural center including a library, a social store, a sewing workshop and an artisanal incubator in Kinshasa. They have already undertaken a first trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo to invest in the site, to participate in the construction and to be in contact with the local populations who will eventually benefit from the social and cultural center.
Their current wish? To be able to recruit more students or even Alumnis within the association, who would like to invest in this beautiful project!
