CHAIRS AND RESEARCH PROJECTS

The Foundation contributes to strengthening the role of ESCP Europe among the players in international management research. The growing number of doctoral candidates affords a high level of production and scientific credibility for the School. This requires a capacity to offer scholarships to students with excellent profiles who do not have sufficient funds to carry out their research activities.
