Educational Philosophy

The European School of Economics has envisioned the birth of a new mankind, for the creation of individuals free from prejudice and fear, and capable of harmonising apparent, age-old antagonisms between economics and ethics, action and contemplation, and financial power and love.

The ESE bachelor, master, MBA, and certificate programmes aim to prepare international entrepreneurs and managers with the cultural awareness, abilities and moral qualities most needed in the world of contemporary business.

ESE Values

Behind every human achievement, at the origin of every intuition, of every scientific or social conquest, behind the world’s largest financial and industrial corporations, and all that is beautiful, useful, wealthy, there is invariably one man, an individual and his Dream.

Only individuals can transform society. Only individuals can dream. ESE’s mission is to create a new generation of young entrepreneurs and corporate leaders, visionaries, pragmatic dreamers. To achieve such an aim requires more than good programs and good teachers. ESE is a system of vital ideas and prepares its students to be the new cells of a healed humanity, free from conflictual thinking, superstitions, prejudices and obsolete ideas, cultivating in themselves an indomitable passion for greatness.

The life of an organization, the future of a nation, of an entire civilization, depends on the existence of these men and women. The heads of future organizations will be philosophers of action. These people are more precious than gold mines and oil fields. They will bring success and longevity to the enterprises of the world.

We embrace the idea that to forge them, academic excellence has to keep up with developing their individual human potential and that developing intellectual capacities has to go along with creating a true internationality and sound operative skills, both gained in the field, within the leading companies of the world.

The success of a man as of an organization is determined by their philosophy.

Therefore in ESE is clear that real education is not simply the teaching of notions and development of skills but above all the transfer of the unique philosophy of the School, of its ideas and founding principles. ESE provides an approach to business and a wide vision of life through a process of intellectual, artistic, political, ethical and socio-cultural exploration, centred on self-discovery and work on oneself aimed at integrity.

Neither knowledge nor education, wealth nor social standing can pave your way to success but rather your own self-knowledge and integrity.

The evolution of every business, from the local corner shop to the giants of international industry and finance is their conscious transformation into a ‘School of Being’. Their aim and real business objectives will be the evolution of all people directly participating, and stakeholders. Corporations and organizations of the future will be places of aspiration and personal improvement where workers and staff will leave at the end of the day with a greater sense of understanding, happiness and responsibility, and where even the remotest cells of the organization will be taken care of in order to evolve and accelerate their progress.
