« This scholarship gives me the opportunity to undertake and to succeed in my journey at ESSEC. I was able to do a double degree with the Ecole du Louvre and live a five-month experience on the ESSEC campus in Singapore. »
Isabelle URBAH (E21),
A final year scholarship student
« Implementing a project like Campus 2023 is an absolute necessity for ESSEC. It will ensure the attractiveness and competitiveness of our school. This project is stimulating, refreshing, and eco-friendly. It is therefore the perfect way to give, or even give back, on an ambitious project. »
Benoit Verbrugghe (M99),
Member of the Campus 2023 Development Committee,
Executive committee member of ARDIAN
« To support this project, I first mobilized all the energies of ESSEC Alumni and then, as an individual with another entrepreneur of my promotion, Mickaël Ohana, we made a donation of €500,000 for the project. It seemed important to us that the latest promotion of the millennium remains active for the construction of the campus of the third millennium. »
Rodolphe Carle (E99),
ESSEC’s ambition is to be open to all talents and profiles because diversity is a source of wealth for the development of the School. It is in this context that the Foundation and the School have distinguished ESSEC professors for excellence in their pedagogy and research and laureates on the Dean’s list Global BBA and Grande Ecole.
During this evening, the scholarship students were also honored and officially received their social scholarship, a significant financial assistance for the continuation of their higher education.
The next ceremony will take place on September 22, 2021.
« I am grateful to ESSEC for this freedom to undertake my own program. I thank the Social Scholarship Foundation for giving me the serenity to undertake and succeed in my ESSEC experience. »

Long-term development of the school
Thanks to ESSEC, I had the opportunity to spend part of my studies in the United States where I discovered the strength of American universities. They rely on generous endowment funds that allow them to consider long-term development strategies. When the endowment fund was created by the ESSEC Foundation, I immediately responded favorably to the call. For me, it is a question of committing myself over time to ESSEC and to help provide our school with sustainable resources to enable it to compete with the best.
« The aim of the project is to offer an experience that meets the expectations of students, teachers, and companies. »
Nancy Faure (E97)
« This is the award that represents the recognition of those for whom the school has existed since 1907, namely its students. »
Aurélien Colson, 2020 Teaching Excellence Award 2021
« As a donor, you are a major contributor to ESSEC’s development in France and internationally. 110 years after its creation, ESSEC remains faithful to the pioneering spirit of its founders and is preparing for the future with the same ambition and conquering spirit. »
Vincenzo Vinzi, Dean and President of ESSEC
« Beyond equal opportunities, social and cultural diversity is a source of wealth for ESSEC. I continue to give so that as many students as possible have access to ESSEC teaching. »
