The Institute will serve as a common bridge between China and Europe for business practices and research work on Sino-European issues will be carried out.
ESCP Business School hosted on May 13th the Opening Ceremony of the European Business Confucius Institute in Paris and on all our European Campuses in presence of Frank Bournois, Dean of ESCP, Leon Laulusa, Academic Dean, Yan Guohua, Vice-President of the Beijing Foreign Studies University and Zhai Jun, Chinese ambassador to France.
The unique model of European Business Confucius Institute is aimed at students and all executives who wish to acquire Chinese skills and improve their knowledge of the business environment. To this end, language courses, conferences and training seminars on business practice and current China will be conducted by the best experts. The Confucius Institute of ESCP aims to become a true economic, scientific and cultural platform between France, Europe and China.
“It is essential for today’s and tomorrow’s leaders to better understand the finesse of Chinese culture and the multiple aspects of the 2nd largest economic power in the world. In addition to learning the language of business, our Confucius Institute will have a major role to play in strengthening relations between China and Europe” says Léon Laulusa, Dean for Academic Affairs and International Relations at ESCP.
This system will then be deployed on the school’s five other campuses (London, Turin, Berlin, Madrid and Warsaw). ESCP’s presence in a large part of Europe encouraged the idea of setting up an economic observatory for French companies in China and Chinese companies in France and Europe. The Confucius Institute of ESCP aims to become a true cultural, economic and diplomatic platform between France, Europe and China.
