Our academic partners,
members of our Advisory Board

École Hexagone invites companies and key market players the opportunity to join its Advisory Board. This council, which meets several times a year, determines the academic content of programmes to ensure they meet the (future) needs of companies.

French Tech

Microsoft, Huawei and Apple are some of the undisputed leaders among IT companies. It is essential for students to master the latest technologies (e.g. 5G) so that they are able to implement them in their future careers. This is why École Hexagone is launching an artificial intelligence course in 2021.
 But that's not all. It has also set itself the task of promoting French Tech among its international students by teaching them the latest French technologies:

Symfony, the leading French PHP framework

Outscale, the French professional hosting company

Stormshield, the first French publisher specialising in cybersecurity, certified by the ANSSI

The objective of these academic and strategic partnerships is twofold: the students benefit from cutting-edge education, and they will ultimately help develop the audience for French technologies by exporting them via future graduates.

Our academic partners,
members of our Advisory Board

Estelle Brown & Marion Frémy - 3DS Outscale

The idea of supporting and training the talents of tomorrow in the use of French technologies reflects the values of 3DS OUTSCALE, and it is therefore only natural that we wanted to join forces with École Hexagone.

Expertise and sharing are part of our DNA and through its highly relevant training programme, École Hexagone enables us to put in place quality talks and exchanges with its students.
Our initial exchanges have been promising, and herald a partnership that we plan to maintain over the long term.

Cyril Bertschy - Bispok

The clients we work with, whether CAC 40 groups or SMEs, are looking for concrete, tailor-made and efficient solutions to their secure connectivity issues. To support our growth, it was only natural that we would contact Hexagone, as the content and curricula fit with our needs.

We are delighted to have students from Hexagone among our “Junior” Experts!
