International business skills
to master the complexity of a global world
Markets are becoming increasingly international, interconnected and
multi-cultural. With complexity comes risk and the need to rely on
inspired managers to achieve business success and social excellence.

Faced with new challenges companies increasingly seek experts with


strong management foundations who can effectively tackle a broad
range of managerial issues, from strategy to finance or marketing.

Grounded in ESSEC Business School’s founding values of humanism,


diversity, responsibility, innovation and excellence, this program provides
students with a global view of the organization, and prepares them to rise
to the challenges of rapidly changing economic and social environments.

THE CERGY-PONTOISE CAMPUS


Welcome to ESSEC Business School’s original
campus located only 35 minutes away from Paris.
ESSEC established its original campus in this student haven in 1973.
Set in a vast green space covering 2,000 hectares, the campus
features the very best teaching tools: auditoriums equipped
with facilities, libraries rooted in the digital era, language
labs, etc. It is also a convivial site with places to eat, student
residences, sports facilities, practical services, and more.

THE PARIS-LA-DÉFENSE CAMPUS


At the heart of Europe’s leading business
district, this ESSEC campus is adapted to the time
constraints and targeted needs of working managers.
This campus, housed in the well-known CNIT building, is
specifically dedicated to our executive education programs.
Thanks to its strategic location, spaces for group work,
connectivity, areas for relaxing, reading and getting
together, it offers the perfect conditions for
educating managers and executives.

Midway between India and China, Singapore boasts
the ideal location to get a global vision of Asia.
Singapore has always been in the vanguard of Asian development
and continues to attract multinationals from all over the world.
Since 2005, ESSEC’s third campus has been ushering its students
into the heart of a major economic, commercial and financial
crossroads, offering an ideal platform for understanding
the forces, complexity, diversity and challenges of a key
region in the 21st century. In January 2015, ESSEC
welcomed students to its new 6500 m2 campus.
