Equal opportunities: thanks to Carrefour, a second cohort of scholarship students from Paris Dauphine University are getting to study abroad


Carrefour is committed to promoting equal opportunities and since 2015 has been funding part of the period of time spent studying abroad for around thirty students enrolled on master’s and bachelor’s degree programmes. They are selected on the basis of their results and means. Once again this year, mobility grants helped thirty students to start the academic year in universities all over the world. The countries in which they will be studying include Argentina, Brazil, China and Spain – the countries in which Carrefour operates – as well as Canada, Chile, South Korea, Mexico and Russia.

In June 2015, Georges Plassat, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Carrefour, signed a partnership agreement with Laurent Batsch, President of the Paris-Dauphine University and its Foundation. This partnership agreement is drawn up for a period of four years, and means that Carrefour can fund part of the period spent studying abroad for students enrolled on master's and bachelor's degree programmes. The company also supports the University's "Campus" initiatives aimed at all students.

This sponsorship scheme is one of a number of initiatives already being implemented alongside Paris Dauphine University. Since 2012, the company has welcomed nearly 650 students on field visits to its stores abroad. This includes China where students enrolled on the University's Masters degree programmes in International Business and Customer Relations have been given the opportunity to experience Carrefour stores and find out exactly what "multilocal" means.
