On Friday, 14 June 2024, ESCP Business School London Campus celebrated the Class of 2023 Graduation Ceremony for its Specialised MSc programmes.

The event recognised our newest graduates from the MSc in Marketing & Creativity, MSc in Energy Management and MSc in Digital Transformation Management & Leadership.

Over 320 graduates, friends and family, faculty and staff gathered at the iconic Waldorf Hilton Hotel in London to commemorate this important day. Guests travelled from around the world, including South and North America, Asia, Africa and Europe.

Prof Kamran Razmdoost, Dean of ESCP Business School London, and Florence Mele, London Campus Director of Student and Academic Services, opened the ceremony, followed later by Lord David Gold, the Chair of the Trustee Board. All three speakers shared encouraging words of inspiration for the Class of 2023, highlighting the cohort's diversity, international outlook, and dedication to their studies. They expressed pride in seeing the next generation of purpose-driven leaders ready to tackle technological, environmental, and social challenges in our rapidly changing world.

Collectively, the 119 graduates represented over 35 nationalities, perfectly exemplifying the international and multicultural spirit of ESCP Business School. This was clearly reflected in the stories shared by programme student representatives. Their speeches offered wonderful bonding stories, personal anecdotes, and how each programme helped to push and transform their lives, both individually and as a collective.

Congratulations to our Specialised Master community. This graduation ceremony was special for the London Campus, as this was the first time we celebrated all London-based MSc graduates together and in London. We are so proud of their achievements and look forward to seeing their impact and successes in the future.
