Study in One of the Most Innovative and Creative Cities
With its 3.5 million inhabitants and around 40,000 more coming every year, Berlin is a fast-growing city which offers a high quality of life at a relatively low cost of living compared to other European capitals.
Cultural diversity shapes the character of the city, imbuing it with cultural flair and variety. Many global players also have a subsidiary in Berlin, e.g. Amazon, Bain, Bombardier Transportation, EY, Google, PwC, Siemens, and Total S.A.
The Economic Factor
It ranges from industrial companies with a long tradition and strong medium-sized companies to a very dynamic services sector as well as innovative IT and high-tech companies. Today, Berlin is especially known for its vibrant start-up culture and for its creative industry; it has become an important media centre.
The city offers numerous “beer gardens“, a wide variety of restaurants, coffee shops, markets, green areas, lakes and cultural events.

Campus Life & Facilities
Berlin campus is located near the Charlottenburg Palace - a historical landmark in Berlin
Campus life and facilities
ESCP Berlin's campus building is comprised of modern lecture halls, a library and seminar rooms. For students who want to take a break from their studies, they can have a bite in the campus' lounge and recreational space, rest on green campus grounds or even take a stroll around the Charlottenburg palace's vast gardens located right behind the campus.
Apart from daily classes, the School's flourishing student life fulfills students in their experience out of class. At Berlin's bustling campus, students can find themselves engaging in projects with the School's varied student societies, joining the Tribunes for a conference/round-table debate on "shaping the Europe of the future" or presenting their business plans at a competition hosted by the Blue Factory (ESCP's own business incubator). But "all work and no play" is not the nameof the game at the Berlin campus! At day time, students can visit the student house on campus for a cozy get-together with fellow students over a cup of coffee. But as night falls the building next door, "Dr. Faust" (a student association founded in 2017), regularly comes alive as a pulsating nightclub.
For any concerns or inquiries regarding our student societies, you can contact the Berlin campus Coordinator of Student Life Alina Iakovleva at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Berlin is home to one of Europe’s most vibrant start-up scenes - ESCP Berlin follows this trend
In the last ten years, Berlin - the Silicon Spreewald - has become an Eldorado for entrepreneurs due to its relatively low cost of living and simple visa application process.

These days, more and more ESCP students are launching their own startups - and as alumni are staying to help them grow!
With our Entrepreneurship and Innovation Chair, the Jean-Baptiste Say Institute for Entrepreneurship, the Executive Master in Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurial Leadership, our MSc in Sustainability Entrepreneurship and Innovation, our Maker Room, as well as our Blue Factory Incubator,entrepreneurship has become one of ESCP Berlin's key academic areas. The School offers many of the tools you need to make your product or service idea real.
Thanks to 40+ years of sustainability-focused policies, Germany has become Europe’s green leader - ESCP Berlin joins in
To meet the growing demand for green management skills, one of ESCP Berlin’s academic key areas is sustainability.

One of ESCP Berlin’s annual highlights is a conference on sustainability and business. This two-day event takes part on campus as well as in the Allianz Forum right next to the Brandenburg Gate, which brings together students, alumni companies, NGOs and political institutions to discuss how the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals can be reached more quickly.
Digitally literate business executives specialized in entrepreneurship and technology management are in high demand. We train them.
