As students of the class of 2016 we do empathise with ESSEC and it’s faculty for all the organisational and logistical troubles it has had to face since COVID-19 hit. However, the class of 2016 too has had to deal with many troubles of its own as well - graduating in the middle of a pandemic did come with its own unique problems. 

At a time of such negativity, the one thing every student from the class of 2016 was looking forward to was the Commencement Day (Graduation Ceremony) held in Cergy or Paris.

It is truly unfortunate that the ESSEC has made a decision to hold a Digital Commencement Day on June 26, 2021 without consulting a single student from the batch of 2016.

We had all dreamed of a day full of happiness and nostalgia with our friends and families- many of whom would be travelling to France for the first time just to be with us. And suddenly, this pleasant, post-COVID day has been snatched away from us, without even consulting us.

Thus, we, the students of ESSEC Class of 2016, demand that the ESSEC administration respect our individual freedom of choice and either suspend the ESSEC Digital Commencement Day entirely or alternatively provide each student with the option to select whether they would like to attend the Commencement Day digitally or attend it in-person the next year.
