ESCP-EAP Graduate School of Management is a major player in the European management education sector.
The School results from the merger of ESCP - Paris Graduate School of Management, and EAP - European School of Management. The merger took place in September 1999.
With 120 permanent faculty members and nearly 200 support staff, ESCP-EAP constitutes the largest, cross-border school of management in Europe today. The School has opted for a multipolar organisation with campuses in Paris, Oxford, Berlin and Madrid. This organisation enables it to be thoroughly international in every aspect of its activity.
The multinational faculty of 120 members, one of the largest in Europe, delivers graduate and executive development programmes across the four campuses. They are mobile, teaching at different ESCP-EAP campuses, and multi-lingual. To meet the rigorous international demands of academic excellence, they work together to conduct research at the cutting edge. In 1999 the faculty published 50 books, more than 100 articles in national and international journals, and presented 125 papers at international conferences.
ESCP-EAP is the editor of the European Management Journal (Elsevier), one of the leading academic journals in the field of European management. In 2001 ESCP-EAP will launch a new journal with SAGE Publications entitled International Journal of Cross Cultural Management.
Over 2,600 students are enrolled in our graduate management programmes across the four centres. Students are recruited from across Europe and from other world regions, creating a very international mix of participants. The involvement of international participants shapes the strong multi-cultural learning environment found at ESCP-EAP.
ESCP-EAP has four campuses in Europe : in Paris, Oxford, Berlin and Madrid. This multi-site organisation provides the basis for transnational management education. Each campus has its own classroom facilities, library and computer centre, yet operates as an integrated component of the multi-country School. Faculty members are attached to a campus and work transnationally across locations and programmes. Administrative staff support the programmes, students and faculty locally.
The Paris campus has a student cafeteria, snack bar, bookstore, multi-media language centre and a student residence.
With four locations in European cities, ESCP-EAP pursues a strategy of local and European accreditation. In France the School has the status of a "Grande Ecole de Gestion" (graduate school of management) and is a leading member of the French "Conférence des Grandes Ecoles" (association of graduate schools of management and engineering). In Germany the School has the status of a "wissenschaftliche Hochschule" (scientific university) and delivers a "Diplomkaufmann" and an MBA degree.
ESCP-EAP is EQUIS accredited. EQUIS is the accrediation body of the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) which has played a key role in the development of a Europe-wide accreditation process and quality label, Since 1998.
Both the full-time MBA and the Executive part-time MBA, in Paris, are AMBA accredited. AMBA is the Association of MBAs and the leading MBA accrediting body in Europe.
