Usually held at the French Senate, the 2018 edition of the ESCP Foundation Annual Cocktail was held at the Italian Embassy under the patronage of Her Excellency Teresa Castaldo, Ambassador of Italy to France.
The event was the first in a series, in which the Foundation will ‘visit’ each ESCP home country via their respective Embassies in the heart of Paris: Italy, United Kingdom, Germany, Spain and Poland. Over 120 Alumni donors or future donors, patrons and friends of ESCP gathered around a glass of Prosecco in the splendid reception rooms and gardens of the Italian Embassy.
Together with Ms Castaldo and Francesco Profumo, President of the Turin Campus, ESCP’s Dean Frank Bournois presented the School’s successes.
Forging a path to become the number one usiness school in Europe with a global reach, ESCP is increasing its momentum through:
- A future upgraded campus in Paris, Berlin, London
- Expansion of its programme portfolio (Bachelor degree, Master in management -Grande Ecole-, Specialised Masters and MScs, MBA and continuing education, to name but a few)
- Significant progress in international rankings
Now is the time to make a donation to contribute to the success of your School, and strengthen your pride in belonging to the ESCP community.
We face a challenge with respect to the number of alumni who currently donate: an average of 450 ESCP donors compared to 4700 HEC donors This is critical because Alumni support impacts our ability to leverage support from public authorities such as the Paris Chamber of Commerce. The power of a school is also that of the Alumni supporting it.
Philippe Houzé, Chairman of ESCP, has officially announced the launch of the future Paris campus real estate project, which will contribute to the international attractiveness of our school, . Christian Mouillon, president of the Foundation, proudly announcedPhilippe Houzé €500,000 donation to the School, as a token of his faith in its bright future.
We look forward to seeing you in January 2019 for a reception in a special location to be unveiled very soon…
Until then, please enjoy photos from our Alumni Cocktail :
