ESCP is undergoing major changes from 2017. Through a session of questions/answers, Frank Bournois, Dean of ESCP, explains you the issues and development goals of the School.
Created in 2015 by Eymeric Guinet and Théo Scubla, students in 2nd year at ESCP, Wintegreat has just received the prize for the most promising non-profit organization awarded by the newspaper le Parisien in its ranking 2016.
Wintegreat implements innovative, free and certificating educational programs in several French top-ranking higher education establishments, to enable refugees and asylum seekers to resume their studies or find a job without downgrading.
This year, Wintegreat was supported by ESCP Foundation thanks to a personal and dedicated donation. We are pleased of their success!

The KPMG Foundation supports Talent Spring, an equal opportunities programme led by ESCP, in partnership with the ESCP Foundation.
Talent Spring is a new admission category to integrate the first year of the Master in Management programme, dedicated to students with an education track limited by very difficult personal environment. In this perspective, an assessment centre – inspired by those used by the companies to detect high potentials – has been created with the help of the KPMG Foundation. This process aimed to evaluate the student in a real case situation and to detect predictable skills, decisive for future managers. The behaviours of the candidates have been observed for 3 days through cognitive tests, collective workshops, innovation exercises and interviews.
Finally, 8 students of Talent Spring are integrating ESCP this month of September 2016.
The KPMG Foundation is involved since its creation in favour of a better access to education. So it decided to sponsor this initiave. This financial support will last 3 years.
The donors of the Foundation met for a dinner at the Senate, on Wednesday September 7th, 2016. Nearly 130 donors of the Foundation were there, including Jean-Pierre Raffarin (72) long term support of the ESCP Foundation.
During the event, Frank Bournois, Dean of ESCP, detailed the future evolutions of ESCP : the empowerment from the Chamber of Commerce, the development of the Bachelor on a new campus in Paris and the future 200th anniversary.
The need for a larger involvement of the junior Alumni in favour of ESCP’s development has been underlined through a testimonial of Marion Nakhlé Cerruti (12), Junior Major Donor of the Foundation.
Patrick Gounelle (72), President of the ESCP Foundation, claimed his support towards the School to fully cope with its challenges and opportunities. It is an essential investment for ESCP’s future in a environment of decreasing public subsidies and increasing competition between business schools all around the world.
The Foundation support to this process is only possible thanks to the generosity of the Alumni and corporate partners. This convivial moment reminded the importance of the cohesion among the Alumni community for the future of the School.
