ESCP Europe (est. 1819) is proud to announce its place in the
short list of the Times Higher Education Awards for 2013.
"We have been in the UK for 40 years now. This nomination
recognises our ongoing efforts to continue to grow, innovate and
reach out to the academic, student and business communities. We are
very proud to have been short-listed," said Dr Patrick Gougeon,
ESCP Europe's UK Director.
The awards focus on achievements in higher education for the
academic year 2011-12. During this time ESCP Europe launched two
new London-based research centres for Energy Management and Creativity Marketing, in parallel with new
Programmes and executive
Master degrees in the subjects.
Through a series of related seminars, conferences, newsletters and
blogs, the School has built new networks and increased its
contribution to the UK academic scene, as well as enriching its
offer to students on all programmes.
Since the 2011/12 academic year, ESCP Europe has continued to
evolve. Its portfolio of postgraduate and executive programmes has
continued to grow (in collaboration with its four other campuses in
Paris, Berlin, Madrid and Torino), and the London campus is
introducing a brand new 'open enrolment' offer for executive
education. The School achieves high rankings in international
surveys, and is one of the few in the world with triple
accreditation from AMBA, EQUIS and the AACSB.
ESCP Europe's nomination for Business School of the Year in the
2013 THE Awards shows that the first business school in the world
retains the pioneering spirit of its founders and the leadership in
cross-border business education that it established 40 years ago.
The awards dinner and ceremony will take place on Thursday 28
November at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London. THE
