Governance

 

European Governance

Alongside the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Paris Ile-de-France region, which guarantees the financial resources of the school through an annual subsidy, the Berlin Government (Senate) has provided its support to the School for over 25 years. ESCP Europe also enjoys the backing of the Turin Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Agriculture and Crafts Industry, the Berlin Chamber of Commerce and a host of players belonging to the European business community.

ESCP Europe has been an EESC (Établissement d’enseignement supérieur consulaire) since 1st January 2018, affiliated to the Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry Paris Ile-de-France, its main shareholder, the two others being the Alumni Association and the School’s Foundation

ESCP Europe is run like a private entity, with a non-Executive Board and an Executive Committee.

Each campus has its own specific governance structure:
Board of Governors (France), Charity (UK), Verein (Germany), Asociacion (Spain), Fondazione (Italy).

The Federal Board (Conseil Fédéral) formulates the School’s strategy. Its membership is comprised of representatives from the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Paris Ile-de-France region, from other national boards, from Faculty, staff and student, Alumni and Foundation representatives.

European Executive Team
The School has a matrix structure of management with federal Directors, responsible for European functions and overall unity, and Campus Directors, responsible for a local Campus and its development.

The Advisory Board was established to share projects and activities done in the field of sustainability management with experts who provide first-hand experiences and practice. Furthermore, they help gain insights, feedback, as well as ideas and impetus for further development. The Advisory Board aims to expand the community for Sustainable Business at the ESCP Europe and advance this significant subject area within the European context. 

Unity of research, teaching and practice

Activities and projects in the area of Sustainable Business of the past few years were joint and put together in an overarching term. The chair of Environment and Economics was established in 2011. In 2013, the research centre “SustBusy – Sustainability in Business and Society” was founded in Berlin.  Four years later, an additional chair of Corporate Sustainability was instituted. ESCP Europe began offering the Master of Science in International Sustainability Management in 2016 and the Master of Science in Sustainability Entrepreneurship and Innovation in 2018.

Moreover, ESCP Europe supports projects and activities of their students and partner organisations to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) enacted by the UN and establish them firmly in student’s curricula. In January 2019 ESCP Europe’s third Conference for Sustainable Innovation brought stakeholders closer together than ever. The conference took place in January right in the heart of Berlin with businesses, government institutions and civil society joining forces to push the SDG agenda and face the challenges together. More than 300 international Master in Management students participated and developed ideas and projects in 20 workshops co-organised on the school’s campus on the second day of the conference by the oikos student society and the students of the MSc in International Sustainability Management.
