Created in 1907, ESSEC Business School is an academic institution of excellence that, throughout its history, has been characterised by its pioneering spirit. In both full-time education and executive education, ESSEC proposes a wide range of programmes to all those wanting to obtain an extraordinary learning experience, strengthen their talent, express their leadership and become high-level managers. ESSEC has opted to focus its strategic development on three principles: innovation, involvement and internationalisation, which comprise the three axes of the ESSEC 3i strategy that will be implemented from here until 2020. An institution nourished by research and committed to an ambitious development of alliances with leading institutions, ESSEC constantly strives to bring its students face-to-face with cutting-edge knowledge and provide them with the latest technologies. Hallmarked by a profound humanistic tradition, ESSEC has succeeded not only in making the link between business and society a major subject of research, but has also made this one of the fundamental components in the training of responsible managers. ESSEC thereby affirms the necessity of putting innovation, knowledge and the creation of value at the service of the wider community. With students coming from 90 different countries, a largely international faculty body and a campus in the Asia-Pacific region since 2005, ESSEC is both an international and multicultural institution. The building of a new campus in Singapore and the implementation of development projects in Africa and Latin America have strengthened this internationalisation. These three axes – innovation, involvement and internationalisation – forge ESSEC’s learning philosophy that is common to all its programmes: accompany our students throughout a learning journey aimed at opening them up to new, unthought-of opportunities. Studying at ESSEC means creating your own path towards the future and joining a supportive global community.
