Today, Friday September 25, 2020, the ESCP Madrid campus has officially kick started the 2020-2021 Academic Year with more than 650 BSc and Master students in on-campus classes.
Even though we received our first 120+ BSc students on August 31st and from there, we have welcomed new groups every week from the Master in Management (MiM) to Option E and Executive Education; today we give our welcome to our last Master programmes cohort in the” MSc´s Induction Day” with over 150 students from the MSc in Real Estate, MSc in Marketing & Digital Media, MSc in Hospitality and Tourism Management and the MSc in Digital Project Management & Consulting.
This year has been a challenge to say the least, the pandemic has marked a before and after for everyone and everything and the higher education sector was not exempted. At ESCP Business School we put our students at the center of our activity and we have strived to guarantee that the quality of their learning won´t be affected by this. The ESCP Madrid campus developed one of the most innovative pedagogical digitalization’s models, the AMBL methodology (Adaptative Model Blended Learning) in record time in order to meet the current needs arising from the Covid-19 pandemic. The AMBL uses technology as a means of teaching and it allows us to change from a face to face model to an online or blended model depending on the needs of the moment in just a few hours. This means that all students, professors, Programme Managers, etc., will be connected and will be able to follow their courses using collaborative tools that will make them feel part of a group and guarantee they get that top notch education that ESCP praises of.
Of course, our campus has thoroughly followed all the safety, hygiene and public health protocols set by our national and local authorities in order to guarantee a safe welcome to all our students and ESCP community. And we are keen on working constantly to guarantee everyone safety and appeal everyone to work together to achieve this. We´ve have designated a Madrid Campus Covid Coordinator, Edurne Garde (firstname.lastname@example.org), who can help you with updates about the COVID-19 situation or guide you in case of symptoms. We have also created a dedicated web where we gather all the rules to keep you safe in Madrid and all the measure that have to be taken at our campus. Let´s work together to beat the coronavirus!
In the next few weeks we will also be welcoming over 800 professionals from the Executive Education Department. More than 612 will be following either our online Executive Master in International Business (EMIB) or the online custom programmes´ designed specifically for their companies or sector. Also, we will have pleasure to see over 200 executives pass through our classrooms in a face to face mode at ESCP Madrid campus Exec. Education.
We are very happy to give you a big welcome to Madrid and we are sure your ESCP Experience will be something exceptional.
