Teaching & Research Chairs

The chairs bring ESSEC into close collaboration with companies keen to develop innovative skills in their sector. Placed under the responsibility of members of the faculty body, each chair has an objective to produce new knowledge, develop science and management practice confronted with the new challenges of the international environment, and to create a flow of data and market analyses. 

The chairs curriculum integrates one or several seminars, strictly reserved to students admitted to the chair, as well as mandatory and/or optional courses. 

Through the privileged links between partner companies, professors and students, the chairs gather leading intellectual and professional communities from a specific field of activity, thus participating in its development. A certificate from the chairs is available if all the courses are passed.
