Student Careers Service

Our training programmes offer a wide choice, and our students have diverse profiles, they are international or pursuing a double degree abroad. Questions about work-life balance and alignment with one's values play a major role in the choice of career path for our students ... for all these reasons Centrale Nantes reinvented its career's guidance around three themes - employability, recruitment and talent appeal - within our Student Careers Service.
