Since its foundation in 1909, ESSCA has drawn inspiration from the prestigious heritage of the French "Grandes Ecoles," the top graduate schools of management in France. At the beginning of the 21st century, ESSCA represents an innovative and forward-looking organization with 2000 French and international students on five different campuses, conscious of its tradition yet open to change and new ideas. ESSCA is AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA accredited and the language of instruction is English.
In September 2006 ESSCA opened a centre in the heart of the 21st century new business capital, Shanghai. ESSCA's increasingly multinational faculty is committed to excellence and continuous improvement in both teaching and research. Strong links with the corporate world have been built up over the years and ESSCA cooperates with over 2000 companies each year for a range of activities, such as consulting, executive education, market research and student internships.

The program offers a stimulating multicultural learning environment which develops cross-cultural skills through group work with a multinational body of professors and students. Students are provided a first hand initiation into all the essential aspects of European business and its interactions with the United States and other important regions in the world.
In Angers, students stay in a student residence (common kitchen, but individual rooms with a bathroom). For Brussels and Paris, students stay in three-star hotels on a double-room basis.

"I was really happy with the structure of the whole programme. Everything including lectures, field visits and accommodations is very well organized. Helps are very easily approachable. For me, this is one of the best programmes I have ever attended so far."
This program offered by CCIS was one that truly changed my life. I made life-long friends, traveled plenty of cities in Europe and was free to have as much fun as I wanted. Classes were very connected, you were able to engage and conversate with the professors. People were kind and welcoming. The cities we were located in were filled with a vibrant nightlife as well as traditional European living. I find it that I grew as a student, tourist, and human while I studied in this program. I find myself more knowledgeable than all my peers when it comes to the EU and how it plays a role in the global atmosphere. While on the trip, I got to learn from the other people in the program who were from Mexico, the Philippines, China, Morocco, Isreal and Hong Kong. So it wasn't just a European experience, I got to learn a lot about different cultures and people. I definitely recommend this program to anyone who wants to have fun, learn a lot, travel a lot, and engage in further expanding your horizons.
