An Interactive Learning Experience. Students enjoy small class sizes and an interactive, project based curriculum. Material is based upon real-life case studies with discussion sessions and project presentations.

Group work is a vital component of the learning experience at ESCE. Working in groups of mixed nationality trains students in how to manage and accomplish given tasks whilst learning to work with different personalities, backgrounds and cultures. The group work based on case studies develops students’ knowledge of how to approach and solve real-life management and business issues, instilling a sense of confidence in their operational effectiveness.
