BS INITIATIVE:A NETWORK OF ECONOMISTS GROUPING TSE ALUMNI
Click here to edit.
BS-Initiative is a non-lucrative organization gathering PhD students and young professionals that are eager to share their analysis and expertise on economic and financial matters. Created in October 2012, it aims at promoting the contributions of its members, in order to add a scientific dimension to the public debate on economics issues. BS- Initiative’s editorial and organizational pillars are informing, understanding, analyzing, proposing and sharing ideas. The diversity of our members’ backgrounds and the high number of contributions and ideas makes the BS-Initiative a source of high-quality economic thoughts, analyses and facts.
The association follows two goals: to build up a dynamic network of economists and to propose valuable analysis that contributes to the public debate in an effective and lasting way.
An international network
The BS-Initiative is structured around an editorial committee responsible of guaranteeing the accuracy and coherence of the propositions published by our contributors. Economists following (or have followed) a doctoral formation form this editorial committee. At the beginning of 2013, BS-Initiative consisted of 16 contributors from French universities (Toulouse School of Economics, Paris School of Economics; HEC, Dauphine; Sciences Po Paris) and international universities: Italy (Univeristy of Venise), Belgium (Université de Louvain), Germany (University of Mannheim), and Australia (University of Sydney).
Most of the contributors studied at the Toulouse School of Economics and have contributed to the development of the student network at the school (especially through their involvement in the TSE Junior Etudes).
In addition, economists from the domains of Banking, Finance and Insurance have joined us. They usually work on country risk analysis on and economic and financial forecasting in their respective organization. By sharing their analyses on bs-initiative.org they are allowing young graduates to enter a privileged network of economists as well as developing a platform where information is exchanged and discussed.
A wide distribution of our contributions
In less than six months, a user-friendly website has been developed and regularly updated. It supports the long term strategy of the organisation. In addition, multiple partnerships have been developed especially with the ‘Cercle les Echos’, first economic daily newspaper in France, and the ‘Economie Matin’, a former journal nowadays published exclusively online.
In « Economie Matin », BS Initiative publishes in the « Experts » rubric, along with other important contributors such as Jean-Paul Betbèze, previous chief economist at Crédit Agricole.
BS Initiative is highly supported by a network of professionals, graduating mainly with a master of finance from « Université Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne », which allows it to have a large access to the professional sphere as well as to the university.
Our contributors also have been asked to participate in radio programs linked to economic news as well as publishing reports (like the one coming out in march 2013 « L’Ecole une utopie à reconstruire » edited by La Découverte).
An opportunity open to every economist
As it develops, BS Initiative continues to recruit a large number of people with a PhD in Economics, professionals in Finance, as well we young PhD students, eager to share their research and their knowledge at the service of public debate. We highly encourage you to read and share our contributions at www.bs-initiative.org!
THE TSE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
As the president of the TSE Alumni Association I would like to present to you the objectives of the association we defined during our last General Assembly on the 30th of November 2012.
The TSE Alumni Association has three long term objectives:
The first is to develop strong links between the alumni across the world and to ensure solidarity within the TSE Alumni community. The association will contribute to developing this network by putting in place regular meetings between alumni in different geographic areas.
The second is to promote “Toulouse School of Economics-TSE” within the professional world in order to encourage professionals to offer internships and jobs to TSE students and graduates. To achieve these goals we need the help of all graduates to promote the school in their professional life and to actively open the door of the professional world to our students through the new TSE alumni platform (more information below).
The third is to contribute to the high level objectives of the school relating to the economic education by ensuring a permanent relationship with the steering board, the teachers and the students.Feedback from the professional world is essential to give the right direction to the education that the school provides. You can come with your company and share your experience and the expectation of the company with the students and teachers during the “Business Talk” day organized regularly at the school. This platform aims to be a place of exchange between students and graduates and it offers you a lot of possibilities to develop your network:
• Create groups across levels of responsibility, geographic areas, professional fields etc.
• Consult the network directories to find someone.
• Increase your professional network.
• Be aware of upcoming events.
• Receive the newsletter of the association.
• Post internships and job offers.
• Be visible to the other alumni and students (provide personal and professional information).
• Launch discussions about individual initiatives, ideas to be shared, topics to be discussed etc.
