ESSEC Alumni

Alumni network



Founded in 1923 by a young graduate, ESSEC Alumni is one of the largest alumni networks in France. Today, there are more than 71,000 alumni, to which a new class of 2,000 young professionals is added each year. The network spans five continents, in more than 85 countries. It runs more than 125 chapters around the world, organizing nearly 500 events a year.

The association's work is based on four main principles:

  • Inspire: be proud of ESSEC and your shared values;
  • Connect: offer the ESSEC community the same experience around the world;
  • Support: so that everyone can find a meaningful job;
  • Together: to act: to get involved in the environmental and social transition.

ESSEC Alumni gives you the opportunity to meet a great number of graduates during your time at the school. Valuable contacts that you can use to network when looking for an internship or a job.
