Dear students and dear colleagues,
Our different campuses have already taken strong measures in the battle against the Covid-19.
As expected, French President Macron announced the closure to the public of all educational institutions.
Therefore, by next Monday, our ESCP Campuses will cease providing classroom teaching to full time students. From now on, all teaching activities will be running on a fully online basis.
ESCP is now entering a new episode of its History and it is for us all to write it and to play it well.
During the weeks to come, ESCP employees will remain very busy, providing teaching and services to the community. Programme directors and campus Deans will keep you informed about how we can adapt our organisation. As for me, I will also address you about key decisions made and measures taken at the overall school level.
With all of my colleagues of the Executive Committee, we are now focusing on two priorities.
First, to ensure the continuity of our students' academic paths as well as their well-being. This matters most. Next Monday a specific email address will be available to students to collect their questions and concerns of all kinds.
Our second priority is to guide and support teaching and administrative teams. As they have to carry out all of their tasks in the best possible way. This is a very unprecedented challenge that we will have to face and overcome together: Faculty will get support to switch their courses and teaching sessions online. Professional staff will be given all necessary guidelines to manage in this new context.
I know I can count on your composure and on your commitment. Many thanks in advance to each and everyone of you.
