[College of Management] College of Management and top French business school ESCP sign an MOU to become partner schools

National Sun Yat-sen University’s College of Management is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with ESCP Business School (ESCP) in France, one of the world’s top business schools, with the aim of promoting exchange programs, double degrees, joint visits, resource sharing, scholar exchanges, research cooperation and other academic activities. Once the details of the contract are finalized, students of the College of Management will have additional opportunities for study abroad and academic exchanges.

ESCP is world-renowned among business schools. Along with HEC Paris and ESSEC Paris, it is known as one of the “Three Parisians.” In addition to being one of the few business schools to have received double accreditation from both AACSB and EQUIS, ESCP was ranked first in the world in 2023 by the Financial Times for Masters in Finance, third in the world for EMBA, and fourth in the world for Masters in Management, demonstrating ESCP’s excellent performance.

Moreover, ESCP is also the world’s oldest business school, founded in 1819. Its long history and excellent educational standards have produced many outstanding alumni, including former French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin, former IMF Chief Economist Olivier Blanchard, and former Hermès President Patrick Thomas, to name a few.

Another thing that sets ESCP apart is that, in addition to its main campus in Paris, it has campuses in another six international cities (London, England; Berlin, Germany; Turin, Italy; Madrid, Spain; and Warsaw, Poland) where it offers degree programs at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels, covering various aspects of business management, such as finance, marketing, supply chain management, and entrepreneurship.

Thanks to ESCP’s international campuses, students have the opportunity to study and intern in different cities and interact with students from all over the world. The institution also actively participates in international exchange programs, and its cross-cultural approach to business education is conducive to fostering cross-cultural communication skills and global perspectives among its students.

NSYSU’s College of Management and ESCP: A Mutually Beneficial Collaboration
Academic Exchange and International Learning

We can tell why ESCP is considered a top business school from the details. Last year, our dean, Professor Shu-Chuan Jennifer Yeh, together with a team from the College of Management, visited ESCP, where they were warmly welcomed by Executive President and Dean Léon Laulusa, Director of the International Relations and Partnerships Ms. Marina Lecomte, and Director of International Affairs Ms. Anaïs Ravet. They enthusiastically introduced the school’s history, cultural relics, and painting collection. The fact that many directors of international offices at ESCP come from different countries demonstrates their focus on diversity and inclusiveness.

The day of the visit happened to coincide with the school’s new student entrance examination. In order to allow students to prepare for the examination in a relaxed way, the school’s main entrance plaza was decorated in the style of a vacation resort, with tents, ping-pong tables and beach chairs, and blue welcoming carpet, and in the indoor lobby, students could help themselves to snacks, fruits, and beverages. The school exhibited a thoughtful approach to welcoming potential students.

The collaboration is mutually beneficial for both schools. NSYSU’s College of Management students will have the opportunity to engage with a world-renowned school. For its part, the College, with its high-quality and international faculty and resources, as well as its stunning mountain and sea landscapes, can provide international exchange students with a robust curriculum and an unforgettable learning experience. Both parties are optimistic about the success of this cooperation.
