ESCE’s mission is to train students how to lead international corporate development in a globalized world while respecting ethics, human diversity and cultural diversity. The school carries out this mission through its “French Grande Ecole” program, based on research projects to improve management skills and knowledge, particularly in the field of international trade. ESCE’s identity is increasingly multi-cultural, increasingly digital as more courses as digitalized, and second cycle elective majors are more and more closely linked to careers in international business.

ESCE delivers a master’s degree validating five years of higher education accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research.
