ESSEC’s academic excellence is recognised through its international standards in management training and it holds the prestigious ”triple crown“ of accreditations: EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA.


At the core of the ESSEC learning experience is a combination of excellence and distinctiveness. ESSEC’s unique educational model is based on multiple learning experiences that foster the acquisition of cutting-edge knowledge with the development of know-how and life skills.


ESSEC is a global school: our international campuses in Asia-Pacific and Africa are dual gateways that allow students to immerse themselves in different cultures worldwide and develop expertise on business in those regions.



It takes drive, passion, and a sense of purpose and a direction to be a leader. Success today means a fulfilling professional and personal life and making sure we have a positive impact on our communities.
