A Big Day for ESSEC in Singapore

By Priyesh Salunke, class representative 2012-2013, India

February 26th, 2013. A bright, sunny and normal day for some but a big day for ESSEC Business School. Our school conducted the ground breaking ceremony for its new campus in Singapore on this day. Located right next to the INSEAD Business School campus, our campus will serve as a new frontier for ESSEC as it opens its doors even wider for the Asia – Pacific region. Being one of the class representatives for the Global MBA, I had the privilege of attending this ceremony where some of the most distinguished personalities from Asia and Europe made their presence felt. As a proud Indian, I was happy to see that Narayana Murthy, the co-founder of Infosys Limited, India was also present.

The ceremony started off with a bang consisting of speeches from the guest of honour, the alumni and the presidents of ESSEC and ESSEC Asia – Pacific. The speeches conveyed what the speakers had in mind. The conceptualisation of this campus was done in the last decade and their dreams were actually coming true. With ESSEC Business School being present in Singapore for some time now and with this new campus here, ESSEC is building a better and stronger foothold in Asia. The architectural model of the campus gave the attendees a glimpse of what would be in store for them. The new campus looks attractive and appealing yet subtle. I could see the happiness and pride in the crowd’s eyes as the ground breaking took place. The moment of glee and excitement. This was a great experience for me and one that I would not forget in the times to come. Way to go, ESSEC!
