This is the first time that a Professor was awarded with the ESCP award. In the following years, more outstanding professors are expected to be awarded by the ESCP.
ESCP Europe is both a high-level school of management with international scope and a large-scale European institution. It was founded in Paris in 1819 and, since then, has educated generations of leaders, contributing to the fine reputation it enjoys today.
ESCP Europe's ambition is to contribute actively to the development of a European economic culture. With five campuses in Paris, Berlin, London, Madrid and Turin, ESCP Europe is the School of Management for Europe.
Each year ESCP Europe welcomes 4,000 students and a similar number of top-level executives. It is at the cutting edge of a knowledge and immaterial economy; fosters innovation and accompanies business organisations in their change process; sustains a wide international partnership network reflecting its global ambitions; is actively involved in economic and societal debate on European issues. Students and executives come from around the world. The school offers them a model of management which prepares them for the future in the respect of such humanist European values as creativity, history, culture, transversality and diversity.
