The European school of Economics believes that only the dream of an individual can change the world.
For generations educational institutions around the world have dedicated their every effort towards trying to teach “sustainable development” to the masses without having the smallest result, instead of focusing their work on the individual, on his vision, on his uniqueness.
The slightest change of man’s being moves mountains in the world of events.

Matthias Hacker (Germany) – MSc Student

“What sets ESE apart is its commitment to balancing academic rigor with real-world practicality. The flexibility of their schedule allowed me to pursue my career path while fulfilling my academic responsibilities. From the beginning, the focus on practical learning was evident as we engaged in projects and case studies that sharpened our problem-solving skills. The fact that all the professors were industry experts actively working in their respective fields added immense value to our education. Learning from their direct experience and insights into the industry’s evolving landscape provided us with invaluable knowledge. Moreover, ESE’s dedication to career preparation went above and beyond. They offered comprehensive workshops for developing soft and hard skills and facilitated introductions to potential employers, encouraging us to apply and pursue exciting opportunities. Overall, ESE’s holistic approach to education and career development has equipped me with the skills and experiences necessary to thrive in my chosen field.

Taking a short course here presented a possibility to live in the Eternal city like a local while learning from the best teachers, in a school that allowed me to meet new people on the Rome Campus but also remotely on the other campuses! It was truly a unique experience! Can’t believe it’s over.

You feel supported and advised at any point of your educational path with ESE.”

“ESE Florence has helped me figure out what I am good at, what my interests and talents are. Before joining the Bachelor degree in Business Administration, I travelled and worked for a few years in Israel, Australia and South America. I didn’t know exactly what to do other than studying business management. At ESE Florence I have truly found my passions: blockchain, crypto and Metaverse…” Read full story

Catalina Guerchi (Argentina) – Events Management Short Course

“A quite long journey drops me in Milano carrying a large bulk of feelings, although a heavy part of them, the fears, disappeared from the beginning. “Hi Catalina, we were expecting you!” said the broad smile of Margherita, Milan’s branch Students Affair. No doubt, right moment, right place, let´s begin!
Studying abroad is not a piece of cake, so many different issues are at stake. Luckily, at the beginning I got the feeling I could reckon on every single member of the ESE team, as they are caring and interested in you…” Read full story

The course turned out to become a real eye-opener, I am very glad I did it. You can definitely learn a lot on the job, but taking an advanced level course was definitely beneficial to my personal and professional development.

Diogo Davide – MSc Student

“My experience as a Master student has been really great. I love the teaching methods of ESE Florence, it’s really different from my experience in Portugal. Professors here are so dedicated and the classes are smaller, which allows for 1-on-1 conversations with our lecturers and group discussions on topics of our interest. I feel free to talk, express my own theories and test business ideas with both my classmates and professors. The classes are like workshops – such a valuable way to learn! After graduating from my Bachelor in Management, I worked for…” Read full story

I see things in a new light now…” Read full story

Sara Segat, Entrepreneurial Management and Leadership, Italy

“At the European School of Economics, I was welcomed with the opportunity to meet and be taught by several extremely inspiring, innovative, and well-affirmed professionals in various sectors. Apart from Music Management, I took classes ranging from International to Digital Marketing – both of which, by the way, is something I found out to be not only truly passionate about but also quite capable in – and from more business-oriented subjects (such as Decision-making) to more leadership-focused ones. The Entrepreneurial Management and Leadership class has been, in all probability, the most eye- and mind-opening experience of my entire life, without any exaggeration…” Read full story

Federico, MSc in Finance

“The biggest difference between studying in Italy or Germany, and studying at ESE is the British educational system, which I find extremely satisfactory. The grading system is tougher, but the exams are fair, and most importantly: we don’t just study theory, but we also learn how to apply it in real life. In previous experiences I just learned the theory by heart to perform well on exams, but then you forget most of it. ESE actually wants you to understand the topics and make sure you are able to apply that knowledge to actual business situations. They really focus on you as a person, on your personal development…” Read full story

Cosimo, BSc Student

“The classes I liked most were the second year Operations Management and third year Strategy and Strategic Dilemmas, mainly because of both professors who were very good at explaining the theory with real-life business examples, making it much more dynamic and real. They have a lot of valuable business contacts and connections and an ample experience to learn from. But actually, all professors have been very good, professional and always available, both in class and outside class. Professors are real advisors for internships and job opportunities, that is very valuable…” Read full story

Nohamein Hayal Kassa, BSc, Ethiopia

“When I first arrived at ESE, I was filled with mixed emotions: I was super excited, nervous, happy. I couldn’t express how I felt. It’s a feeling that many college students experience, I would say the “roller coaster feeling” when you are off to college.” Moving to Milan, in a new city with new people; the city of fashion , food , art it was truly an amazing journey of my life. Nevertheless, ESE did not disappoint. ESE was very welcoming. Studying in Milan has been an incredible experience…” Read full story

Niccolò, BSc, Italy

“I really like this type of education: it’s practical and pragmatic. You don’t only study theory, but you learn how to manage real business issues. It helps you to understand how business works in the real world. I also enjoy the type of assignments, which are often projects for written essays or group research. I learn a lot more from them than just from written exams….” Read full story

Barkin Altun, BSc, Turkey

But meeting the professors, who are themselves business owners and managers, has been helpful in learning more about different options and opportunities…” Read full story

Vladimir Andryukin – Alumni success story

“ESE gave me a wider view on business and taught me how to recognise opportunities and make the most out of them. Being able to transfer between campuses while following the same programme was a great opportunity to travel, meet more people and gain experience. The best thing for me was also the fact that the teachers were active business professionals, so we not only had a chance to discuss theory, but also put it into practice. I remember having intense discussions with a number of lecturers during class, especially in Economics, which gave me confidence and allowed me to better understand the matter. Our questions and opinions were never rejected. Our professors were always up for a conversation and were happy to share their experience…” Read full story
