Educating Leaders of Tomorrow
Executive President & Dean of ESCP
ESCP in a Plural World
In this context, the ability to know two or three cultures in depth and to have the mindset to discover other cultures throughout one’s life is a distinctive feature of tomorrow’s leaders and entrepreneurs. This is the very mission of ESCP: offering students rotational curricula on 6 different European campuses in Berlin, London, Paris, Madrid, Turin and Warsaw.
ESCP with the technological revolution
Responsiveness commands professionals to be able to think and work in project mode rather than in established processes. In this context, interdisciplinarity prevails and everyone must master an expertise while being able to dialogue with other specialists. At ESCP, the multidisciplinary approach was theorized by our founders – a group of economic scholars and businessmen, including the famous economist Jean-Baptiste Say: lawyers cannot elaborate rules without a solid digital culture; engineers and developers will see their innovative products doomed to failure if the designer and the marketer are not, and so on.
ESCP and Leaders of Tomorrow
ESCP’s programmes provide tomorrow’s leaders with broad knowledge to help them go beyond the mere technical approach or exclusively economic purpose of a company, providing a solid grasp of the economy, politics, societal, and environmental issues.
These three dimensions—multicultural, multidisciplinary, and humanistic—constitute the historical foundation of the European education. If companies legitimately expect young graduates to be experts as soon as they enter the professional world, it is up to the higher education institutions to plant this seed that will help them evolve quickly and over time.
The world without borders will probably never exist, whether these borders are geographical, cultural, or disciplinary. It is up to us to train the next leaders who will be able to successfully bridge borders. This is why today, more than ever, an integrated multi-campus Business School is the best answer to global challenges.
