Parents’ Advice: What You Should Know About ESCP


The choice of a bachelor programme is perhaps one of the most important decisions to be taken in the youth and it most often involves the entire family. The transition to university education requires several needs to coexist, including the aspirations and orientation of the students themselves, the values ​​of the family and the needs of the world of work.

To better understand how this delicate moment has been handled by some of our students of the Bachelor in Management(BSc), we met some of their parents. The occasion and the location were utmost special: Their Graduation at the Intercontinental Hotel in Berlin.

Choosing a bachelor’s degree. A decision taken in the family

“I already knew ESCP Business School, so I decided to introduce it to my daughter. We discussed quite a lot about the options at hand, but in the end my daughter Allegra decided to attend ESCP for her bachelor,” said Monica La Cava, Head of Learning Organization Strategy at Altaformazione. “I work in the field of learning and development so in my opinion ESCP is definitely the right choice for her.”

Not all the parents involved in the conversation knew ESCP before, as explained by Greta Chan, Business Director at Freeyi Handels GmbH: “I was searching for a business programme that would be suitable for my son Hon Man. When I discovered ESCP, I asked for some opinions about it. Especially younger people or professionals working in the consulting industry, firmly suggested me to go for it and I got several feedbacks saying that ESCP should have been our first choice.”

The reasons of a choice

The quality of education was of course one of the main reasons of choice, but not the only nor the most important one. “I’m working in the Social Investment field, so I found this Business School to be very consistent with the values and ethics that are paramount to me. I supported the choice of my son André with enthusiasm,” said Corrado Ferretti, Vice president at Carlo Denegri Foundation.

In fact, what emerged from the conversation, was the intrinsic value of the Bachelor in Management (BSc) as a life experience. “I think my son Guillaume became a well-rounded individual with a lot of maturity. Secondly, he has built strong foundations across business management in general and finance in particular,” said Sebastien Danloy, Global Head of Asset Owners & Managers at HSBC Securities Services.

Learning independence and multiculturality

Of course, the decision to let your child live alone in several foreign countries is not always easy, as stressed by Monica La Cava. “From a mother’s point of view, it was a little bit difficult, but I think it was well worth it. As parents, we think that we need to protect our kids too much, but we should definitely let them go and gain their own valuable experiences.”

“If you want your child to operate in today’s world which is multicultural and multilingual, ESCP is the perfect choice,” added Sebastien Danloy.

“The future will be very global, so make sure to choose a programme which allows your kid to be able to really embrace different cultures. Because to live somewhere is very different than being an exchange student. One year in a new country is long enough to feel it and know the difference,” concluded Greta Chan.

The ESCP Bachelor in Management (BSc) is a unique opportunity to challenge yourself and experience intercultural management first-hand by living and studying in three different countries over three years.
