ESSEC Business School: The Pioneering Spirit
As a business school created in 1907 with French roots, ESSEC Business School has a pioneering spirit that drives us everyday. And as a world-school with four physical campuses now in Cergy, Paris La Défense, Singapore, Rabat and our new Digital Campus, the purpose of ESSEC Business School is to have a global impact by educating the leadership of tomorrow.
With our educational model based on multiple learning experiences including the creation and dissemination of cutting-edge knowledge and blend of academic learning and practical experience, ESSEC prides itself on preparing its students for the world of tomorrow.
ESSEC is a complete ecosystem at the crossroads of research, innovation, business and society. At ESSEC, we believe in bringing research and companies into the classroom. We also believe that learning doesn’t end with a degree. Learning at ESSEC means becoming a life-long learner and joining a close-knit community of more than 55,000 alumni all across the globe.
Thrilled to co-host!
For more than seven years, ESSEC has been using Salesforce to digitize and transform its various entities. Whether for recruiting, advising students or even engaging with alumni and companies, our partnership with Salesforce is helping us improve our processes by building them around our users. Throughout these seven years, it’s become apparent to us that both ESSEC and Salesforce share the same pioneering spirit combined with a high sense of excellence.
So, the decision to co-host Horizons with Salesforce this year was an easy one. Technologies, like artificial intelligence, are broadly transforming society and the new learner expectations are changing and the model of higher education. This shift is a necessary but simultaneously challenging time of transition for higher ed.
This event will be an opportunity to gather our peers from across Europe in one place, exchange our respective experiences, and, importantly, identify the opportunities for our institutions to continue to reinvent themselves and offer even more personalized, impactful and adapted services for students, corporate partners, and society.
We are delighted to co-host this year and look forward to welcoming you on 10 October for the second-ever Higher Ed Summit Horizons in Paris, France!
