Chairs and Professorships

See this page in:
A Chair or Professorship is a privileged space for reflection and sharing, allowing a company to pass on its expertise, and support research and teaching activities in specific fields of activity or professions. It is also a means of strongly developing a company’s corporate and employer brand.

Generally, the sponsor provides monetary support to a specific member of the Faculty who holds the Chair and who, consequently, is responsible for its research and education programmes. Such programmes are directly related to the business sector of the sponsoring organisation.

Research programmes involve researchers on the six ESCP campuses, as well as researchers from other academic institutions. Programmes are vetted by a scientific committee. Chairs are an important factor in stimulating research at ESCP. ESCP campuses also run local chairs, such as the Berlin campus.
