Developing the endowment fund
ESSEC’s identity is marked by a pioneer spirit, the drive to explore uncharted territory and anticipate the future. Pushing back the frontiers means knowing how to act and create in an increasingly complex world - and it is precisely that savoir - faire that ESSEC strives to convey to its students.
The ESSEC Foundation plays a crucial role in supporting the school long-term
Donors who give to the endowment fund help ESSEC implement its strategic objectives in terms of international development, research and teaching, entrepreneurship, and diversity.

During the second edition of ESSEC’s Involvement Week, members of the Foundation’s committee joined donors, students and staff for the inauguration of two lecture theaters in honor of Jean-Philippe Chomette (E86) and Yves Dubief (E81) – both founding members of the ESSEC Foundation. As well as thanking them for their generosity, Gilles Pélisson and Jean-Michel Blanquer highlighted the long-standing commitment the two entrepreneurs have made to ESSEC’s development and success.
“The income from the endowment fund will help the school long-term to increase its activities in favor of social diversity, and support its international development in a highly competitive context.”

The K-Lab has a dual role as an educational and research laboratory, and a space for content creation. It is also a knowledge-sharing arena open to the entire ESSEC community.

“Thanks to our different campuses we offer our students a unique experience. Our mission here is to extend our activities in Asia from the campus in Singapore, in line with the academic and business context specific to the region.”

“The endowment fund provides ESSEC with greater independence and growing long-term resources, helping the school progress in the all-important international rankings – and thus promoting ESSEC’s reputation.”
