The European School of Economics values the individual learner. We respect the right of each individual to dream, to strive, to struggle, to succeed – the right to be free, unique and innovative. Our primary objective is the development, growth and success of business leaders and entrepreneurs. We embrace the idea that developing career skills and developing individual human potential are equally valuable.
We recognize the interrelatedness of all learning. We believe that such learning and growth is the mutual responsibility of the school and the student. Toward this end, ESE provides undergraduate and post-graduate education emphasizing self-knowledge, the theoretical and conceptual underpinnings of business and the liberal arts, and the application of knowledge and innovation to a global environment. Therefore, we urge students to accept responsibility for improving themselves and society.
We value the whole individual. ESE focuses its efforts on helping students grow both academically and personally. ESE is committed to the development of the whole individual – intellectually, culturally, and socially.
We value learning – whether formal or self-directed, it is the core value of the ESE philosophy. The School seeks to provide opportunities for individuals to learn and grow and develop through the Schools programs, courses and activities.
We value freedom and integrity – a model of human possibilities that weaves together science, business, morals, imagination, and aesthetics leading to integral and vertical transformation.
We value innovation as well as creative approaches to both education and the business enterprise.
The vision for ESE students is to have a learning experience that is intense, exciting, and that firmly grounds them in the disciplines and subjects that are required for effective business leadership. The European School of Economics dreams of a revolution in perception … the birth of a new person who is willing to create a new reality, free from prejudice and fear, capable of harmonizing the age-old apparent antagonisms between Economy and Ethics, Action and Contemplation, and Financial Power and Love.
Our Mission is to develop business leaders with active and creative minds, a sense of understanding of global issues and the global environment of business, and the courage to act on their dreams and beliefs.
