The Business of Education

In a series focusing on business schools, Steve Coomber of Training Journal visited ESCP Europe.

The continuing globalisation of business means that issues of diversity and crosscultural competence are becoming increasingly important for executives. So where better to go for postgraduate business and finance-related education than a multi-campus business school that spans Europe, with an additional 60 academic alliances in 33 countries worldwide, to study alongside students representing 90 different nationalities?

ESCP Europe could lay claim to being the oldest business school in Europe – its origins date back to 1819, when the Ecole Spéciale de Commerce et d’Industrie was founded by a group of businessmen and economists in Paris. The foundations of the school as we know it today, however, were laid down in the late 1960s and early 1970s when the school changed its name to Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Paris (ESCP), launched programmes for experienced managers and adopted a multi-campus approach, operating from France, Germany and the UK.
