For the last 30 years The European School of Economics, founded by Economist, Philosopher and Artist Elio D’Anna, has been pursuing the mission of an Effective Self-Centred Education by working with a “Small Classes, Big Care” attitude in which every single student is taken care of.

In the face of the current world-wide health situation the means and methods of delivering our underpinning philosophy are strongly reinforced and more relevant than ever.

Being a private Business School with a limited number of students accepted per programme, we can guarantee a maximum number of 12 students per class. We are therefore able to meet any social distancing rules, securing all our students by guaranteeing a totally safe environment.

“We need schools of freedom, international, pragmatic and multicultural schools of economics and politics, which educate a new generation of leaders to harmonise the apparent age-long antagonisms: economics and ethics, action and contemplation, financial power and love.
Only individuals can transform society. Only individuals can dream. ESE’s mission is to create a new generation of young entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, visionaries and pragmatic dreamers.
We will continue to move forward expanding the School to create individual pathways of success for students all over the world.”

Elio D’Anna, ESE Founder and President


A system of education aimed at the individual to provide a framework for each to find his pathway towards the realisation of his professional dream offering British degree courses worldwide, working with over 1500 of the world’s leading companies and having produced more than 7000 graduates and industry leaders, intrinsic to our President’s philosophy is the personalised attention that each student should receive.

Students are always carefully assisted by the Student Affairs department, which provides them with constant individual support. ESE’s International environment and intra-campus-experiences will also guarantee the safety and success of their living and studying not only in their home campus, but in all ESE abroad centres allowing them to move freely and safely between centres continuing their academic pathway.

Applications and enrolments for both face-to-face/in-class as well as online and blended courses starting September 20, 2021 and following are being processed as usual with an average turn-around time of 3-4 days.

Should enrolled students, for any reason linked to Covid19, not be able to be physically present at any ESE Campuses for the start of Academic Year 2021/2022 in September, they can either defer their physical presence to the next term or study online to complete the term. ESE’s live online classes guarantee the same academic excellence as in-class courses.

ESE has, from its conception, implemented a system of multiple centres with small class sizes – precisely as are being now recommended by many governments in their reopening schemes.

We are pleased also to announce that in addition to the exceptional iconic campus locations, international student body and working professors, cutting-edge subject matter, British degree courses and personal care, we have introduced a number of new programs for our students.

To nurture the creativity, we believe to be innate in every one:

Talent Out – will give the opportunity to showcase unique work to be presented to world-class organisations across a wide spectrum of industries.

Ex-duco – will encourage students to go deeper into their passions and talents by facilitating sharing with other students in both individual and group sessions on and off line.

Smart Internships – are an important addition to our already over 1500-company-strong in-company training program that will allow students to work with some of the greatest companies and leading industry professionals in a secure and safe setting -remotely.

In this time of transition, our students and families’ peace of mind and safety are our primary concern.  In line with all locally prescribed laws each ESE centre will conduct a safety assessment and deep cleaning before reopening, and will continue to safeguard student’s health and safety by disinfecting classrooms daily according to the strictest norms.

As always ESE is dedicated to making a unique educational experience available to all enrolled students regardless of nationality, race, religion and financial standing.  Please call us or refer to our virtual financial office ( for information on loans, scholarships and instalment plans.

Don’t hesitate to contact us for additional information. We will look forward to hearing from you and seeing you either online or in our centres soon.
