A community bound together by its values
Humanism, innovation, responsibility, excellence, and diversity are the values shared by the entire ESSEC community. Students, Executive Education participants, professors, staff, and graduates are united by this desire to get involved, share ideas and participate in the events that are dear to this institution.
In October 2014, the first annual Involvement Week, brought together more than 4,500 members of the ESSEC community to celebrate our institution’s commitment to the common good.
Students are also regularly encouraged to participate in the school’s charitable initiatives, through which they earn work experience credits. ESSEC today disposes of the largest charity and volunteer work network in France.
Furthermore, our over 47,000 graduates are an essential component of the ESSEC ecosystem, and show their support in multiple ways. One of the ways they get involved in our community is through mentoring: matched with a student, they support their academic progress and advise them on future professional projects.
The ESSEC Foundation, created in 2011 under the aegis of the Fondation de France, supports ESSEC’s inclusive growth by issuing grants, scholarships, gifts, and more, in recognition of academic excellence.
