A SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT, CORPORATE FINANCE AND LAW
ESAM is a school specializing in the fields of corporate finance, strategic management and business law. Our training courses combine international and entrepreneurial dimensions, acquisition of professional skills and academic excellence.
You will learn to develop value creation strategies and will be trained in the implementation of projects taking into consideration the financial, technical and human dimensions. We want you to also enjoy embodying the entrepreneurial spirit during your studies by studying boldly, dreaming lucidly, engaging tenaciously, risking courageously and daring with passion. In addition, the 2020 Student Awards awarded to ESAM first place in the ranking of major post-baccalaureate schools for finance since 2015, work-study program and support for student entrepreneurs, for the third consecutive year. In addition, ESAM ranks TOP 1 for work-study training and TOP 5 for pay on leaving studies.
« At ESAM, we are convinced that entrepreneurship is above all else, a philosophy of life where each actor in society learns to take considered risks in order to build his personal and professional life project. It is the main vector of job creation in the knowledge economy of the 21st century and it is the fundamental cultural element that will allow older organizations to adapt to changes in society.
This state of mind is reflected in the opening on the Paris and Lyon campuses of a coworking and incubation space "The Why Not Factory" by ESAM, a veritable educational laboratory dedicated to the development of an entrepreneurial culture.
Since February 2017, more than 180 students have joined the system and around 20 companies have been created.
In the same vein, we are also launching a “Financial Factory” which consists of sustaining innovative and concrete projects. We insert students of the Corporate Finance course directly into "start-ups" or TPE during their course to confront the real life of the company and its constraints.
For the third time in a row, our students will be defending the colors of ESAM and the IGS group at Harvard (Boston). The students of last year had a very good career benefiting from a solid experience to be highlighted when they left the finance and strategy course. If you like entrepreneurship, finance and management in a strong international context, ESAM is the school for you.” . »
