ESSEC Business School

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.



Created in 1907, ESSEC has never ceased to innovate to anticipate the challenges of the future. Very early on rooted in the heart of the ESSEC identity, the pioneering spirit constitutes the common thread to this story steeped in history.


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.


As a citizen institution conscious of its duties to society, ESSEC aims to improve the management of organizations by producing and disseminating knowledge, concepts and methods in line with the challenges of the 21st century. ESSEC’s research goals are backed by the ESSEC Research Centre, founded in 1963.


With the help of ESSEC's professoral expertise, our goal is to find solutions to tomorrow's challenges, guide our business partners, and participate in public debate. At the crossroads between cutting-edge research and teaching, between economic and societal issues, ESSEC's Centers of Excellence, Chairs and Centers play a role in the transmission and dissemination of academic knowledge.
