The IMD MBAs choose their committees for the year: social, sports, sustainability, speakers, and yearbook.

As the program moves further, things start to get more intense with the hard knowledge becoming indeed hard, with more complex finance problems, challenging strategy cases, supply chain and operations discussions and accounting due work picking up. But then again, an MBA program is composed of many other facets than the hard skills. This week, for instance, we elected our representative committees, divided into categories that should work with the IMD community in each specific topic. To name them: Social, Speakers, Sports, Sustainability and Yearbook committees.

The determination of the participants was delegated for the class to self-organize. All went smoothly, and with enough time for a political event to take place, with campaigns, elections, arguments and promises of agendas. After a very democratic process, the elected parties were:


Bruno Palacio – Monty Hicks – Nick Geldhof – Aurore Amaudruz – Anthony Wilson


Mrunmoy Panigrahi – Stephanie Hurry – Sammit Purandare – Simone Perego – Javier Valy


Carlos Gancedo – Andre Garcia – Laudie Jamous – Konstantinos Pierros – François Facchin


Yaroslav Ivanov – Rishabh Kumar – Dmitry Borisenko – Elaine Shi – Olivier Chenneveau


Haichen Liu – Shashikiran Chandrashekharan – Waithera Kinyeki

I congratulate all my colleagues for the election and proudly take a place in the sustainability committee. This was a personal achievement and I believe that much learning will be taken from it. For sure it won’t be an easy task, specially being a parallel endeavour on this intense program, but sustainability is a cause I personally have a deep interest and belief in, and I am very happy to have the opportunity to work with these people and the IMD community on the subject.

Hope we can keep up with the expectations and excel on another aspect of this experience.
