The partners of the “European University for Entrepreneurs” (EU4E) Consortium, including ESCP Paris Campus, ESCP Berlin Campus, ISM University of Management and Economics (Lithuania), Kozminski University (Poland), Mondragon University (Spain), Portuguese Catholic University (Portugal), and Oulu University (Finland) completed the first phase of the project with the signature of an MoU between the partners. The ambition of the EU4E is to become the global benchmark on the theme of entrepreneurship education.
The originality of this proposition lies in:
- Its focus on "Entrepreneurship", a transdisciplinary subject using transverse approaches and designed to address the industrial and societal challenges in Europe;
- North-South-East-West cooperation with an inclusive dimension, focusing more on complementarity than on elitism;
- Complementary pedagogical and methodological approaches rooted in the 'knowledge triangle' - Education, Innovation and Research - , and drawing on the specific and complementary expertise of the partners.
As ESCP is celebrating its bicentenary in 2019, the oldest Business Schools pays tribute to one of its founders, the famous liberal economist Jean-Baptiste Say, who coined the concept of "entrepreneur".
