associative life at the heart of the pedagogical project

At ESCE, nearly 40 associations in Paris and Lyon punctuate the daily lives of our students. Sporting, cultural, entrepreneurial, humanitarian or simply fun, ESCE associations extend the school’s educational project, while developing a necessarily international dimension and ambitious projects.

Each position within an association corresponds to a real responsibility: team management, planning, logistics, budgets and accounting, creativity in projects and communication.

The objective is to give the members of the associations concrete responsibilities of management and project management, but also to allow them to live their passion.

an international dimension within the associations

Because ESCE is an international school, associations are asked to communicate in at least two languages (French/English) and to design projects to be developed internationally

More and more, associations are invited to integrate international activities in their activities
