In Italy we serve both students with Masters Programmes, as the Italian campus of ESCP Europe, and the business community, with a complete offer of executive education, applied research and entrepreneurship services.
Torino ESCP Europe campus presents four distinctive characteristics:
is a young campus, with the enthusiasm of a start-up and the phase of strong development of successful initiatives.
entrepreneurship, one of key values in which Torino campus believe in. This is fundamental for both, in one hand train managers and entrepreneurs able to make decision also in difficult situations thanks to to acquired skills and competences, and, on the other hand by sustaining the development of entrepreneurial activities started by our students and alumni.
strong links with the business community are for sure one of the key characteristics of the Italian campus (over half of our activities are with the corporate world). This leads to a benefit for students, who can take advantage of the relationships of the School in the development of their academic and extra academic curricula, for example in terms of company projects, internships, applied research studies, entrepreneurial opportunities and contributions of managers and professionals during the year.
academically, we offer you the highest international standards of ESCP Europe and its world class certifications: EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA. In particular we aim at preparing the next ruling class, a community of exceptional people trained to be capable of taking managerial decisions on behalf on their companies and institutions. With this purpose in mind, our didactics are centred on preparing you as a future decision maker in a complex economic context. This means providing you with the necessary knowledge and more importantly with the skills and attitudes required of such a role. Action learning has proven to be a powerful methodology and we adopt it as much as possible, by including in our didactics case studies and real life situations which can make you practice the role of decision-maker. This approach will be provide you with excitement and learning opportunities, but with some frustration too, as you will realise that management is not an exact science but a professional practice, in which there is no one solution to a given problem. For this reason no knowledge will be enough to enable you to take the right decisions, but rather you will need to develop the skills of a problem solver and a decision maker, who can lead an organisation in a business environment, which will be substantially different from that of today in most of its elements, except one: people. Teamwork is therefore another key element of the equation, which you will practice from your very first class.
