A big thank you to the participants and generous donors of the first ESCP Fundraising Gala in London. An astonishing total of £220,000 was raised which will contribute greatly to the ESCP Scholarship Programme.
Over 100 guests gathered at the Four Seasons Park Lane for a wonderful evening sponsored by Ondra Partners and New End Associates: a reception with champagne premier cru Frerejean Frères followed by a gourmet autumn dinner.
The auction led by Adrian Biddel, spurred great interest for the wonderful lots donated by Pierre Guénant (72), Olivia de Posson (06), Jean-Pierre Raffarin (72), Christian Marti (93) and W. Salamoon & Sons.
Around 15 alumni pledged their support to the ESCP Scholarship Programme for the equivalent of 8 years of study or a total amount of £120,000.
This was an unprecedented demonstration of the unity and the dynamism of our Alumni network, turned into powerful action. It shows its ability to support the School’s growing momentum, as it forges a path to become the number one business school in Europe with a truly global reach.
In the name of the Scholarship Students, and all of the ESCP community, thank you!

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…
