Giving to Campus 2023

Your support to Campus 2023 is key to bring ESSEC at the level of the best international standards. This ambitious project responds to the new needs expressed by students and faculty of an eco-friendly, socially engaged and state-of-the-art campus. In 2023, three new buildings will radically transform the way we teach, research, live, work and study on the Cergy campus.
