In a turbulent business landscape where the danger of becoming unsuitable to deal with sudden changes is ever-present, business leaders are confronted with an urgent need to draw on a wide range of different skill sets.
In the midst of all the uncertainty, business educators have been hard at work to arm these professional executives with the intellectual arsenal and expertise they will need to robustly handle such challenges.
With French roots dating back to 1907, ESSEC Business School has fashioned itself as a titular academic institution with the goal of passing on cutting-edge knowledge to new generations of curious minds with a passion to lead and influence.
In order to prepare tomorrow’s leaders for the transformative changes of today, be it in technological, industrial, managerial or social spaces, ESSEC developed an educational model that has successfully kept pace with a rapidly changing world.
With the values of the institution rooted in its heritage, ESSEC inspires new forms of leadership through their symbolic RISE strategy. As a higher education institution centred on humanist goals, the university is committed to enlighten, lead, and change the world by instilling a sense of responsibility and direction to the leaders of tomorrow.
ESSEC Business School aims to infuse executive education participants with new business and economic models that are impactful in result as well as mindful of the environment at large. Through meaningful and economically-conscious projects, future leaders will be prepared to run companies and organizations that are more inclusive, innovative, sustainable and fair – all with the goal of bringing value and positive impact to the world.
The golden standard of international excellence
As the 5th provider for Executive Education worldwide (Financial Times, 2020), ESSEC’s campuses in La Défense, Paris and Singapore, have dedicated many decades to nurturing the invigorated spirits of executive professionals and deepening their business acumen and leadership development.
ESSEC Executive Education equips participants with the necessary tools to hone their skills, talents, and ideas into that of real world applications they will greatly benefit from.
Placing uniqueness and individual integrity at the heart of their educational model, the university’s post-experience learning journey draws out an individual’s innate leadership potential through practical theory and collaboration.
From March 2021, ESSEC Executive Education is also under the new leadership of Jérôme Barthélemy, recently appointed as Executive Vice-President for Post-Experience programs and Corporate Relations.
In a tight international environment, having in-depth knowledge backed by research and education is the double-edged sword ESSEC provides. Through the executive education programme, this higher form of enlightenment will give executives the foresight to better understand multicultural problems and address them with the appropriate multidisciplinary approaches.
A unique interdisciplinary ecosystem
Having been in existence for more than a century as an academic institution, ESSEC prides itself on providing graduates with a fully immersive educational experience. Through peer-to-peer interactions, enriching coaching sessions, and the practical application of their learnings with social projects, to name a few.
ESSEC Business School’s approach to education places human individuality and uniqueness at its fundamental core. The institution has built its name on educating a wide range of professionals throughout the course of their career: from high-potential individuals in their early stages, mid-level associates steadily making their way up, to experienced executive leaders who need refresher courses.
The executive educators for each programme are more than equipped to guide every participant towards the implementation of their life project, encouraging them to embrace their own individuality and nurture it in such a way it becomes their edge in the real world.
Reveal your talents
ESSEC Business School’s programmes not only develop participants’ management qualities and expertise, but also give them the intuition to be able to call on such skills when needed.
The learnings they will derive from these sessions can be applied to different fields, such as: purchase management and supply chain, marketing, human resources, finance, information systems, and more.
The part-time Executive MBA, one of the school’s most respected degree programmes, also ranked 8th worldwide in the QS World University ranking, is designed for seasoned executives looking to build a stronger network in an international collaborative environment. The full-time Global MBA, on the other hand, can greatly benefit younger executives with 3 to 10 years of experience, leadership potential and their eyes set on careers in consulting, digital leadership or luxury brand management. It is also the world’s MBA with the largest representation of women (Financial Times, MBA ranking, 2020), a testament to the school’s ambition to promote diversity by encouraging female leaders to accelerate their careers.
Other programmes of the school, such as the part-time Executive Master in Luxury Management & Design Innovation (EMiLUX) or the full-time MSc in Hospitality Management (IMHI), accommodate individuals who want to foster stronger relationships within a global frame, as well as fine-tune their mastery in business acumen and getting first-hand experience in high-profile roles.
ESSEC Executive Education’s portfolio of functional programmes incorporates different cross-cultural and custom-built tools for leadership and change management, operational management, and social entrepreneurship.
