What is a Junior-Enterprise ?


The Junior-Enterprises (J.E.) are not-for-profit economic and educational associations with more than 40 years of experience and subject to the 1901 law.

Established among schools and universities, they enable the students to apply their theoretical and practical skills learned at school. More precisely, these students help carry out projects in the fields of competence of their school. They work for a wide range of companies : big or smaller ones, communities, start-ups…

Based on the consulting firms model, they provide the Junior-Entrepreneurs with new skills : how to manage a company, a team… Besides, the students working on projects get a concrete professionnal experience at an early stage of their employment experience.

On the other hand, the customers benefit from the students’ dynamism and ability to innovate, all the more so as they are supported by their teachers and the researchers. Moreover, the quality of the work is guaranteed by the annual control of the JE by the National Confederation of the Junior-Enterprises (CNJE).
