Studying at ESSEC’s La Défense campus is a great way to boost your skills by combining professional experience and coursework. Because your time is limited, this campus – located within the famous CNIT building – was designed with efficiency in mind.

Direction to the campus

Located in the heart of the La Défense business district, the ESSEC CNIT campus is easy to reach from Paris and its suburbs, Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport, other cities in France or abroad, thanks to an efficient public transportation network.



As one of the leading business school in Europe and founded in 1907 in Paris, ESSEC Business School strategically chose Singapore to extend its international presence and establish its Asia Pacific campus. The economic dynamism of the city-state and its position at a multicultural and educational crossroads allows ESSEC to respond to the increasing demand for management education in Asia.

ESSEC Asia-Pacific aims to groom a new generation of global leaders, entrepreneurs, and professionals able to face the challenges of a fast-changing world. The Asia-Pacific campus was inaugurated in 2005 at the National Library Building in Singapore and has since welcomed and trained over 3,000 students and managers from all over the world. In 2015, ESSEC moved to its Asia-Pacific campus at Nepal Hill, located within the one-north Business Park. 


As a centennial academic institution, ESSEC provides participants with an incredible experience fueled by rich interactions, teachings and sharings. Thanks to its vast panel of Executive Education programs and international professors, ESSEC believes in placing at the core of its pedagogical approach, human singularity and the creation of one’s future and success.

With executive education, the focus is set on attaining excellence, entrepreneurship and accompanying every participant in the implementation of one’s life project. Throughout that cycle, participants are encouraged to believe in and take ownership of ESSEC’s core value, the pioneering spirit.
