An Exclusive Business School

ESCP-Europe was formed in 1999 with the merger of ESCP, one of the first schools in the world dedicated to business studies founded in 1819, and EAP, a unique multi-campus business school promoting European management education since 1973. It is the oldest business school in Europe and the first devoted entirely to business studies.

The School is dedicated to the development of business leaders, espousing the philosophy: "Cross-cultural exposure and experience shape the attitudes and skills that internationally operating businesses require from their managers." ESCP Europe has five campuses throughout Europe located in London, Madrid, Paris, Berlin, and Turin, totalling 3300 students of 90 different nationalities. The Flagship program is the Master in Management, which has 1400 students, 700 of whom are at the Paris campus. In addition to this active student body, the ESCP Europe has over 30,000 alumni in more than 80 countries around the world, comprising an active global network.
