AMS announces new partnership with ESSCA School of Management

Antwerp Management School partners with ESSCA School of Management to launch top-ranked Executive MBA program in Paris. As of November 2021, Paris will become the third location of the EMBA after Antwerp and Moscow. The news comes after the program was ranked nr. 55 worldwide by the Financial Times Ranking, moving up 30 places in only 3 years!

"Next to our existing partnership with IBS, a partner for more than 20 years in Russia, we are very proud to announce that we added a brand new partner to our program: ESSCA School of Management, one of the most well-known and recognized business schools in France. The past years we’ve noticed in our collaborations that we share the same vision on society and business education. We look forward to exploring together the EMBA market in France" said Steven De Haes, dean of Antwerp Management School.

Jean Charroin, dean and CEO of ESSCA School of Management describes the new partnership as follows: "As part of the Odyssée 20/24 plan, we want to emphasize the qualitative and international dimension of ESSCA's continuing education by developing an Executive MBA program. To meet the expectations of future executives, a partnership with AMS was a natural choice for three reasons: a long-standing cooperation based on trust and professionalism, undeniable expertise in the MBA segment and, finally, a shared vision and values. We call our establishments "schools of management" rather than "business schools", which is indicative of our social positioning. We are committed to supporting European companies and organizations in their managerial, technological and environmental changes."

The Executive MBA will be launched at ESSCA’s centrally-located Paris campus in November 2021. We look forward to welcoming new students there, and to bringing our students from Antwerp, Moscow and Paris together. The goal is to enhance cross-cultural interactions and further enrich our students’ international experience. By working with faculty from all over the world sharing their knowledge and their insights, we aim to create a unique learning experience for a diverse group of participants sharing different insights.

We strongly believe that now, more than ever, we need leaders who can tackle the challenges ahead and stand strong in a fast-changing world. In uncertain times, such as with COVID 19, education and certainly executive management education is more important than ever. In our EMBA you’ll learn how to make your company crisis resilient and future proof, how to act in times of crisis and most importantly, how to be a confident and trusted leader and manager. At Antwerp Management School, we keep on innovating and looking for new possibilities to further extend and develop our educational offer. In ESSCA School of Management, we found a partner that shares our values and vision for the future. Along with our partner in Moscow, IBS, we will continue cultivating people into global citizens who consider human, ethical and economic dimensions in their life and career.

In climbing 30 places in the FT ranking in the past 3 years, from rank #85 to #55, the Executive MBA has shown its future-forward design. The structure and contents of the program mirrors the values of Antwerp Management School and its partners. Together we deliver a deep insight in all managerial domains combined with a Personal Development Program based on two pillars; the NeuroTrainingLabTM and personal coaching. The EMBA also combines deeply engaging International Components and a Positive Impact Project, preparing you for a leading role in sustainable transformation. In our opinion, these are the building blocks required to develop a Global Citizen who masters the art of decision-making and leading people in a challenging world.
