ESCP Europe 'Highly Commended' at annual Times Higher Education awards

ESCP Europe Business School has been named as one of the UK's leading business schools at the prestigious Times Higher Education awards, having been 'highly commended' in the 'Best Business School' category.

The awards dinner and ceremony, which took place on Thursday 30th November at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, is known as 'the Oscars of Higher Education' with over 1,000 guests in attendance, including politicians, senior academics, and professional university staff from all corners of the UK.

ESCP Europe, with distinct campuses across 6 countries - London, Paris, Berlin, Turin, Madrid and Warsaw - was the only institution on the shortlist not based exclusively in the UK.

The School's Dean, Professor Frank Bournois, says:

"This outstanding achievement shows the relevance of our multi-campus strategy. To be a truly pan-European business school, we must be recognised as a leading institution in each country where our campuses operate and only ESCP Europe can do this! I am very proud that the THE considers ESCP Europe a top UK business school."

The last year has seen many achievements for ESCP Europe, including the introduction of the innovative Bachelor in Management (BSc) and a new Executive Master in Manufacturing Automation & Digital Transformation, focused on the industry 4.0 agenda.

The School's Master in Management programme (delivered in significant part in London) was ranked in 4th position globally by the Financial Times, with the Advanced Master in Finance (split between London and Paris) 2nd worldwide.

2017 also saw ESCP Europe's second European Electric Vehicle Road Trip (EVRT), with students travelling 6,5000kms to e-mobility events and conferences in electric vehicles in collaboration with Global EVRT and the School's student Energy Society and academic Research Centre for Energy Management.

Simon Mercado, Dean of the London Campus at ESCP Europe, says:

"We have been proud to be nominated alongside such excellent British business schools and congratulate category winners, Saïd. The nod from the judging panel and high commendation is an indication that we are a distinctive and creative force within the European and UK Business School community. London is Europe's most global city and ESCP Europe is Europe's most international business school."
