Accessibility & disability


Commitment and actions for disability in the ESSEC Group

The ESSEC Group's development has been based on humanism, responsibility, diversity, innovation and excellence. It has been committed to a new approach since 2008 for:
• the integration of disabled persons as students in initial training, participants in permanent training, professors and employees;
• the accessibility of campuses and the activities taking place there (premises, facilities, services, classes, entrance exams, Internet sites, events, accommodation…);
• taking account of the different types of disability within training programs in order to raise awareness and reinforce the responsibility of future managers and directors.
