To better meet the new needs of world leaders, ESCP Business School’s Executive MBA is reinventing itself with a fully customizable and flexible format available on its six international campuses from the start of the January 2022 school year.
Strongly committed to responsible management, the Executive MBA reinforces this orientation throughout the program, with a new core course on “Responsible and Sustainable Leadership” in addition to existing elective courses and seminars including CSR concerns.
Always attentive to the market, the innovative format of the Executive MBA is the result of a long reflection preceding the Covid-19 health crisis, which has been further justified and confirmed in the current context.
ESCP Business School unveils the new features of the Executive MBA
A customizable and flexible program, with 9 core courses, 10 elective courses, 5 international seminars and 1 international consulting project, the ESCP EMBA offers participants the choice between face-to-face, distance or hybrid formats on its six international campuses : Paris, London, Berlin, Madrid, Turin and Beirut. Participants now decide when, how, what and where they want to take each of their nine core courses. In addition, they have the option of creating their own EMBA from a range of over 50 elective courses, with a total program duration of 18-34 months depending on their choice.
Driven by the desire to give all high-potential talents, from all backgrounds, the opportunity to become responsible leaders who will have a positive impact on the world, ESCP Business School is convinced that the flexible format of the Executive MBA, particularly appreciated by women and international participants, will promote gender parity and strengthen the cultural diversity that already exists within the program (36 nationalities on average), thanks to the school’s multi-country structure.
By leveraging this innovative and borderless format, the EMBA, currently ranked 7th worldwide by the Financial Times, demonstrates that it is a pioneering diploma open to the world and society, while retaining its European DNA.
“Our unique pedagogical approach effectively combines a solid theoretical foundation with relevant practice; meet executives, managers and professionals directly in the field; learn from successful businesses; and work on real case studies. In addition, we combine the flexibility and possibilities offered by digital tools with the value of classroom activities and lectures, ”says Francesco Venuti, professor of accounting and associate dean of the Executive MBA & General Management program at ESCP Business School. . “In addition, we have created a new foundation course on sustainability and have included sustainability topics throughout the curriculum as a kind of ‘red thread’, ‘lens’ or mindset through which we interpret the world around us and make connections between decisions. “
For Ines Khedhir, Director of the Executive MBA at ESCP Business School, “We wanted to be daring and innovative while staying in line with the mission and core values of ESCP Business School. We have redesigned our EMBA to make it more flexible and customizable for managers from all backgrounds. The new flexible format of our EMBA (face-to-face, distance or hybrid training) also reinforces our commitment to diversity within our program.
Francesco Venuti, Associate Dean of the Executive MBA, adds: “Three key areas summarize the innovations of our new Executive MBA: the personalized path, sustainable and responsible leadership, and digitalization, while maintaining our truly European DNA. With the new Executive MBA program, our goal is to offer a transformational path that trains our international managers to a virtual path of responsible leadership, where they can effectively combine care for people, for our planet and for businesses.
