The place to be

ESCP Business School


ESCP Business School was founded in 1819. The School promotes responsible leadership, based on European multiculturalism and open to the world.

Six campuses in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Turin and Warsaw are the stepping stones that allow students to experience this European approach to management.

Its strength lies in its many business training programmes, both general and specialised (Bachelor, Master, MBA, Executive MBA, PhD and Executive Education), all of which include a multi-campus experience.

It all starts here.

BERLIN

With its unique history and culture, the German capital has become a symbol for both European life and international outlook and is of course famous for its diverse economy.

With its 3.5 million inhabitants and around 40,000 more coming every year, Berlin is a fast-growing city which offers a high quality of life at a relatively low cost of living compared to other European capitals.

CULTURAL VARIETY

Berlin is a multicultural city with a representation of more than 180 different nationalities.

Cultural diversity shapes the character of the city, imbuing it with cultural flair and variety. Many global players also have a subsidiary in Berlin, e.g. Amazon, Bain, Bombardier Transportation, EY, Google, PwC, Siemens, and Total S.A.

THE ECONOMIC FACTOR

Berlin is characterised by a rich multifaceted economic structure.

It ranges from industrial companies with a long tradition and strong medium-sized companies to a very dynamic services sector as well as innovative IT and high-tech companies. Today, Berlin is especially known for its vibrant start-up culture and for its creative industry; it has become an important media centre.

LIFESTYLE

People value Berlin for its pulsating scene and night life as well as for its spacious parks and bohemian quarters.

The city offers numerous “beer gardens “, a wide variety of restaurants, coffee shops, markets, green areas, lakes and cultural events.
