Untitled[edit]

ESCP Europe has a partnership with Ecole Superiueres des affaire where students at this school in lebanon get also their degreen from ESCP-Europe.

i think this should be mentioned in the article also that is has prescence in lebanon(middle east) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jihad.beydoun (talkcontribs) 08:51, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

was ranked 1st in Europe[edit]

This is actually not exactly what the ranking says. The Financial Times ranking that is quoted here is a global ranking. Not just Europe.

'It is considered one of the best business schools in France and Europe, noted for its European and international activities'[edit]

This is promotional content, while rankings speak for themselves. I would delete this sentence, or shorten it to enhance readability. Please check WP:ASF for what a fact around opinion is. Gabaix 16:03, 21 April 2010 (UTC) Response: I think this sentence is true and helps to understand where the school stands in terms of international reputation and recognition.

{{Fact}} tags and french-ness of the MBA[edit]

I've removed some recent revisions

  • I've removed the Fact tags that questions whether ESCP is a leading, respected school. I think the FT references are enough there. It's clearly one of the five or six leading business schools in France, and one of the top 100 world-wide. Its international reach clearly is significant, since few other schools have such substantial international campuusses.
  • The notion of the MBA as inferior to the Diplome is not specific to ESCP, and does not belong on this page. Considering the Bologna process, in which many Diplome programms are now masters degrees, such as ESSEC, this is a hard point to take seriously.

Any comments? --Duncan 11:14, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Reworded slightly - all of the GE's are prestigeous. It's clearly a good school - but would be nice to see some (french) reference for where it stands in their ranking. No sure my French is up to the task. Feel free to rv me though - will accept your call on this and not change back. 198.96.135.62 10:17, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Some of the GEs are more prestigious than others. Read Bourdieu, please! And just speak to people, and look at all the rankings, and look at the discussion forums from the CPGE students... There are "parisiennes" and "provinciales", whether IEP, Business schools or Engineering schools...

That's YOUR POV - show me where this is defined as consensus? 198.96.134.61 20:05, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Here is a bit of reading. I don't know if it's the best examples, but I just searched in google for less than a minute. Here are four articles, two from famous newsmagazines, equivalent to Newsweek or Time, two from websites explaining education in France. Please notice the words employed: "Parisiennes", "haut du panier", "Groupe A", "Les trois grandes"... Have a good read. If you want mor, just do the same and google your doubts.

History is bunk[edit]

The history section seems to have been written by someone who doesn't know what history is. If we ask what was founded by those wise people in 1819 and continued to flourish until the last few years, we have to look for a name in the title of a book cited in note 9 -- "École Supérieure de Commerce de Paris". So didn't that French grande école achieve anything under that name? Apparently not: according to the text of this article, back in 1819/1824 it was already called "ESCR Europe". This section needs a careful rewrite, but I guess the two books cited in the notes would be suitable sources if anyone has access to them. Andrew Dalby 13:26, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

[Added a few minutes later:] I came here because an anonymous editor has recently added a version of this non-history on the Latin Vicipaedia. It will have to be corrected or deleted, so I was looking for guidance. I have now found some guidance in the French article, whose pagename (curiously) is still the old name of the school: it seems to include a proper history. If anyone wants to work on this here, the French article makes a reasonable source, I think. In outline:
École spéciale de commerce et d'industrie was founded in 1819
École Supérieure de Commerce (de Paris) was the name from 1848 onwards
Separately, the École Européenne des Affaires was founded in 1973 and eventually had 4 campuses in different countries
They merged, under the sadly non-memorable name ESCP-EAP European School of Management, in 1999
This was renamed ESCP Europe in 2009
This article needs to say that plainly, and not pretend that a school called ESCP Europe was founded in 1819. Andrew Dalby 13:49, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Etymology[edit]
