Our methodology

Junior ESSEC regularly carries out quantitative studies in different ways:

  • Administration of questionnaires by telephone and / or sending campaigns of e-mails,
  • Administration of questionnaires in face-to-face,
  • Administration of questionnaires via an online panel.

The Project Managers of Junior ESSEC are able to mobilize many investigators as well as various panelists to ensure the administration of a large volume of questionnaires in a very short time, both in France and abroad. These significant resources also allow us to administer questionnaires to very specific and difficult to reach targets.

Junior ESSEC thus contributed to the launch of many activities which are now booming.
