This academic year began with accolades for ESCP with top rankings in the Financial Times and a nomination as 'Business School of the Year' in the Times Higher Education Awards 2013.
The 2013 FT Masters in Management Rankings, placed the School at No. 1 in each campus country (France, UK, Germany, Spain and Italy), No. 1 for 'International Experience' and No. 2 worldwide.
This year 830 students from 41 countries have enrolled on the two-year course whose graduates realise a return on investment from their studies within the first year, mainly from the consulting and finance/banking sectors.
Dean Edouard Husson said, 'One of the key reasons for the School's results in the FT ranking is that taking a global perspective is in our DNA: since the 1820s one third of our students have been international. Our faculty have always remained faithful to our founder, Jean-Baptiste Say, by emphasising innovation and a strong commitment to entrepreneurship and individual responsibility.'
Innovation in the UK, through the launch of the Energy Management Centre and Creativity Marketing Centre, gained ESCP Europe its place on the shortlist for 'Business School of the Year' in the Times Higher Education Awards 2013. Through seminars, conferences, newsletters and blogs, the research centres have helped the School build new networks, reaching out to the UK academic scene, and enriching its offer to students on all programmes.
'We have been in the UK for 40 years now. This nomination recognises our ongoing efforts to continue to grow, innovate and reach out to the academic, student and business communities. We are very proud,' said Dr Patrick Gougeon, UK Director.
