Paris Campus

The original campus of ESSEC is based at the heart of France: Paris.

Paris has always represented the timeless values of human progress, and it is therefore the ultimate stepping stone for your career. From finding corporate opportunities and growing a powerful business network, to enjoying the arts and a vibrant history: you can find it all in Paris.


At just 35 minutes from the bustling business district La Defense, stands the iconic ESSEC France Campus. Located in the second largest student area in Ile-de-France, housing over 27,000 students, the France campus provides everything you need to develop and enjoy your academic career to the fullest. The campus is a very modern home to our 4000 students: they use the latest technologies in our Knowledge Labs, enjoy a nice meal together in restaurant The Daily Market and of course relax and socialize in the Foy’s bar. Our students are very diverse and active: there are over 100 student associations you can join.
