The Research Brown Bag Seminars (RBBS) of the Center of Excellence for Management and Society are an open forum where researchers (professors, research associates and PhD students) either from ESSEC or outside are welcome to present their research, preferably at an earlier stage of completion. The RBBS take place every month of the academic year and feature speakers from various backgrounds with rich and diverse research interests but a focus on Management and Society issues in the broadest sense. The seminars are designed to be highly interactive in a pleasant and constructive setting.
