ESCE Paris - International Business School

ESCE’s mission is to educate international business leaders with full awareness of their ethical, social and cultural responsibilities in a globalized world. The school carries out its mission through a research-led program emphasizing managerial knowledge and practical skills.



September 1968. On the initiative of the French Foreign Trade Center, now known as UBI France, ESCE is founded by four professors. It is the first business school to specialize in International Business Management, and its mission is to train the “future infantry” of International Trade, in France, and to build expertise in the import/export business. 


ESCE’s dynamic and innovative approach is guided by the principles of constant development, adaptability to the labor market and anticipation of contemporary educational and economic needs, underpinned by the fusion of our collective talents and skills.

ESCE has always strived to design original courses and a customizable curriculum, and to deliver them with enthusiasm.


Research at ESCE is conducted through the Interdisciplinary Center for Foreign Trade and Economics Research (CIRCEE). CIRCEE’s research policy is determined by its researchers in close collaboration with the Scientific Advisory Board, made up of university business and management professors.


ESCE’s career service runs a “midterm review” for students during the final internship phase of their studies, prior to beginning their job search as young graduates. In these half-day workshops, in small groups of twelve, students are guided through a review of their internships and job offers.
