On Monday 4 May 2015, French business school ESSEC opened the doors to its new Asia-Pacific campus at Nepal Hill, One-North district. The facility is ESSEC’s first campus outside France in the school’s 108-year history. The school first established an Asian Centre in the National Library building in 2005.
The new S$40 million, five-storey building spans an area of 6,500 square metres at Nepal Hill and is able to accommodate up to 1,500 students annually in the future, almost three times the previous capacity of 550 at its Asian Centre.
The new campus, which commenced classes recently, runs a range of postgraduate courses and offers Executive MBA and Executive Education programmes. Its Global BBA, a bi-campus Bachelor in Business Administration programme that starts in September, will also allow students to study in three different countries, including Singapore and France.
