True to the humanist values ingrained in our French roots, our global business school must now, more than ever, infuse tomorrow’s leadership with meaning, by producing relevant knowledge and preparing our students to create and run companies and organizations that can have a positive impact on the world.
This ambition is reflected in our strategy, RISE, based on three strategic axes. We have named our 360-degree environmental and social transition plan “Together”. Its aim is to transform our training programs, our research, and life on our campuses in order to tackle environmental and social challenges. This requires innovation, experimentation, and the creation of new business and economic models.
ESSEC is equally committed to investing in its entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem through Enlightening Entrepreneurship, which aims to strengthen our course content, our incubation tools, and our support procedures, making ESSEC a unique platform for entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and innovators where uncertainty is seen as an opportunity and an invitation to act. ESSEC is aware that cutting-edge technologies are increasingly required to achieve social progress and sustainable economic development.
To this end, we have created the Metalab, a unique multidisciplinary ecosystem that combines expertise in hard sciences and social sciences to inform practices at the intersection of “Data, technology and society” and put people at the core of all decision-making processes.
We are facing huge challenges, but we are ready to play our part as a higher education institution of excellence to “Enlighten, Lead and Change” our world, to create more value, and to make it more sustainable, inclusive and fair.
