Student Department

Who are we?

The Student Department is an association at ESA Business School aiming at organizing and animating the student life through cultural and festive events.
Members of the Student Department are appointed by the students and ESA management at the end of the academic year and are part ESA structure.
Elections are carried out following a two-week electoral campaign after the publishing of many competing lists.
