top-ranked institutions of management in higher education

A History of Excellence

Founded in 1907 in Paris, ESSEC Business School is a centre of academic excellence underpinned by its faculty’s research. The School’s reputation is built on a pioneering spirit that shapes both its scientific ambitions and its pedagogical approach, and is reflected in its extensive alumni community.

The mission of ESSEC Business School is to create and disseminate cutting-edge knowledge, to train and develop bold pioneers and influential leaders for both the business world and society as a whole. ESSEC Business School encourages students and participants in its programmes to anticipate – and meet – the economic, managerial, social, environmental and ethical challenges of an increasingly uncertain world. The school helps them achieve more and more complex goals by leveraging technology with a human touch.

Through its undergraduate, graduate, executive education and PhD programs in Europe, Asia-Pacific, and beyond, ESSEC Business School trains agile, creative and open-minded professionals and fosters a spirit of lifelong learning. Our students learn to reconcile academic knowledge and cultural heritage with their own experience to develop individual and collective freedom and success.
