Success Stories

Antonio Fajardo
BASF - Project Engineer & Technology Manager
“I decided to continue my education at ESCP Europe and apply for the EMBA 2018. The experience to date is extraordinary and I’m convinced that doing only the GMP is not enough. Besides of the quality of the courses and the learning experience, I´m very impressed with the amazing people I have met. Surely some of these persons will turn out to great friends. Additionally, I have already seen a direct impact in my career. Few months ago, my responsibilities in the business management area were increased. Thanks to the skills I acquired in the last months I feel myself more confident in fields that were out of my comfort zone before.”


Anna Kraft
