ESCP Europe brings digital learning to the heart of its flagship​ ​educational programmes

From compulsory coding classes for students, to new teaching techniques and coaching for faculty, ESCP Europe Business School announces a range of initiatives embracing digital business and technology across all its five campuses in Paris, London, Berlin, Madrid and Torino.

ESCP Europe has created a platform for co-creation and knowledge sharing between faculty and students, intended to provide students ​with the skills needed to be employable in an increasingly digital business environment and society - which are still in the process of being developed and structured.

Highlights include:

  • A 30-hour coding module for all Pre-Master in Management students, providing an essential skill to manage digital projects in the workplace. The course will lead to the actual development of an Android-type application.

  • A Digital Squad will exploit the potential of digital methods for teaching, enriching student-professor interaction, offering "something new in a different way".

  • A Digital Intelligence approach leading to workshops and coaching sessions to train faculty across all campuses.

  • Enhancements of existing ‘blended learning’ techniques, currently used extensively on executive education programmes.

  • Extending the online Executive Master in International Business from Spanish to the School’s four other campus languages (French, English, German, Italian).

  • The creation of a new MOOC on the theme of ecology, in collaboration with French Senator Chantal Jouanno, former Minister for Ecology, and co-chair of eco-innovation think tank Eco-Ethik.


ESCP Europe Dean Prof. Frank Bournois said:​

'Digitalisation concerns both businesses and individuals. Digital technologies have an impact on the evolution of our society at all levels: personal data protection, employment, consumption​,​ etc... We cannot be players in the economy and society without understanding their impact. In response to this, through new tools and teaching practices​. ESCP Europe will continue to ensure a smooth transition for its students between the worlds of education and the workplace. All developments will reflect the DNA of our multi-campus school.​'
