Enlighten. Lead. Change.
Today, at a time when economic, social, political, and environmental change have never occurred so quickly, so profoundly, and on such a global scale, ESSEC acknowledges its role and its commitment to becoming a business school of reference in its support of organizations, and positively influencing the way it addresses the major challenges facing businesses, organizations and society.
ESSEC’s purpose, embodied in its signature Enlighten. Lead. Change. highlights its roots in the higher education sector and this commitment in the world today and in the future. It shows its uniqueness by illustrating the experience and pedagogical path that ESSEC offers the members of its community and which guides them throughout their lives.
Enlighten refers to harnessing the power of research and education to better understand the world and the challenges it is facing by using a multicultural and multidisciplinary approach.
Lead stands for our school’s aim of initiating and guiding all types of transformation, whether technological, industrial, managerial or social, to make them more meaningful, sustainable and inclusive.
Change means being an agent of change, by supporting companies in their ambition to reconcile value creation and contribution to the common good.
