  • Foreword by Prof. Herv Mathe

    Professor and Dean of ESSEC Asia-Pacific, President of the Institute for Strategic Innovation and Services

    Business schools have a duty to provide an appropriate setting in which to address the challenges currently facing societies and the environment. New business models must be implemented for every industry and region. Co-creation, serial experimentations and the application of design thinking are required to formulate winning answers.ESSEC has devised innovative ways to deliver economic and business education since its founding in Paris in 1907. In Asia, we launched exchange programmes with leading Japanese and Indian universities decades ago. Multiple other initiatives have been implemented since then, including executive education and dual degree programmes in China and throughout the entire region. In 2005, we established our campus in Singapore as a gateway to Asia, focusing mainly on offering our students and scholars from Europe a unique opportunity to gain exposure to the worlds fastest-growing and most strategic economic area.

    ESSEC has subsequently expanded into a fully-fledged multicultural academic institution spread across campuses in Europe and Asia, strengthened by the resources of its network of partner institutions in America and other regions. In Singapore, ESSEC is nurturing a growing vibrant and research-driven learning community. We have introduced numerous graduate programmes including the leading Master of Science in Management in addition to a series of specialised master degree courses, executive workshops and advanced programmes in order to provide optimal long-term value to students, managers and organisations all over the region. Integrating social sciences into the curriculum, reintroducing emotional intelligence in decision-making processes, extending the creative ability of managers, and running consulting projects for the good of the public are just a few of the initiatives we have taken to manage the current necessity to reinvent business education.

    To engage in ongoing discussions with businesses and governments, ESSEC Asia-Pacific frequently organises public lectures and professional events with themes central to our fields of study: geopolitics and globalisation, cross-border innovation, healthcare economics and management, the evolution of finance, the global supply chain, environmental and social issues, to name a few. Based on the communitys pedagogical creativity and strong values, we believe that education today must blend field experience with in-depth learning, and geographical mobility with an articulated understanding of cultural diversity. This is key to address the complexity of a globalised economy and to develop the skills required to formulate and implement positive value-enhancing decisions. ESSEC Asia-Pacific has defined itself as the place to learn about innovative problem solving, strengthen the self-confidence demanded of responsible leaders and finally fight for a better world.

    ESSEC Business School Pioneering Spirit
