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: In addition to our presence in Europe, our international campuses in Asia-Pacific and Africa are dual gateways that allow students to immerse themselves in different cultures worldwide and develop expertise in business in those regions.



As digital transformation fundamentally alters the business landscape, the onus has shifted towards professionals having to constantly upskill to remain relevant for the job market.
