Responsibility, Ethics and Sustainability
HEC Liège is committed to the ecological and social transition and addresses the issues of social responsibility, ethics and sustainability in all its teaching, research and community service missions.
The HEC Liège S'LAB platform federates the specific expertise of its teachers and researchers to accelerate the transition of HEC Liège and its stakeholders.
In terms of Research
Taking into account the scarcity of natural resources, climate change and the persistence of socio-economic inequalities, each of our 7 strategic research fields questions the solutions taken for granted and develops specific expertise in transition (sustainable finance, change management, smart cities, social economy, sustainable marketing, sustainable supply chains, global performance). On this basis, the teachers and researchers at HEC Liège develop new business models based on alternative models of value creation.
In terms of Training
As early as 2010, thanks to its Centre for Social Economy, HEC Liège positioned itself as a true pioneer by offering its students a specialization in the Management of social and sustainable enterprises, within the Master in Management (120 credits).
Since then, other programs have been added to our offer, such as the Specialised Master in Social Economy, in partnership with UCLouvain, and from the beginning of the academic year 2022-2023, a Specialised Master in "Sustainable and Climate Finance".
HEC Liège Executive Education is currently developing a new training program that will strengthen the expertise of Walloon managers and decision-makers involved in the sustainable transition of their organizations.
In terms of Community Service
Aware of the challenges of the ecological and social transition, each member of the HEC Community is positioning himself as an actor of change.
The S'LAB supports this work of awareness and mobilization, by organizing numerous events around the theme of transition, and by supporting the activities organized by its partners, such as the Green Office of ULiège, the HEC Digital Lab, the Venture Lab, Liège Creative, Enactus, etc. The S'Lab supports the meeting between all the actors of the HEC Liège Community and offers everyone the opportunity to address the challenges of the transition in their daily activities and missions.
