Implementation methodologies

ESCP Europe is committed to further developing both teaching and research devoted to sustainability as well as green campus actions and initiatives. In this respect, a new major concentration on « Management, social innovation and Sustainability » was launched in 2011 on the Paris campus (Professors Aurélien Acquier & Olivier Delbard), together with a new specialization on « Sustainability management » taught in Berlin (Professor Sylvie Geisendorf). Besides, a major on « Social entrepreneurship » has started in Madrid in 2011.Our objective is to have a 20% increase in students in these majors.
