To better respond to the needs of its partners, ESSEC has organized its expertise into academic departments as well as centers of excellence. On the one hand, this organization corresponds with the traditional research and teaching disciplines, and on the other hand with the major sectors of economic activity. The centers of excellence are present along the entire academic value chain – from research to engagement in public debate, via undergraduate, graduate and executive education. They offer strategies for understanding future challenges, and guide reflection and the development of partnerships.
ESSEC’s cutting-edge research feeds into the centers of excellence in real time, reinforcing their role as incubators of learning innovation and facilitating the development of original executive education programs.
