Mission, Vision and Values

Our mission

ESCP Europe’s mission is to inspire and educate tomorrow’s business leaders.”

Our conviction is that tomorrow’s business leaders will need to be international, digital, and inter-culturally effective. Our approach to education and organisational structure reflects this, with strongly international programmes delivered by an integrated (pan-European) Faculty across campuses in each of Europe’s principal markets. 

We advance this mission through our unique approach to international management education and research, which promotes transnational experience, collaboration and learning within a pan-European framework.
 
In 2015, the School formalised a unique approach and perspective under the C4B acronym: Cultures for (4) Business. This continues to guide our work and is now embedded into a new Strategic Plan for the period 2018-2022.

C4B OR HOW WE DELIVER AT ESCP EUROPE

  1. An expert academy focusing on international/comparative research.
  2. Mandatory rotational programmes providing unique multi-campus learning experiences across Europe.
  3. Inter-disciplinary teaching integrating the hard (coding,...) and the softer (the humanities...) skills of management.
  4. A diverse, creative and entrepreneurial community.
