The Story

Each story is the interview of an ESCP Europe alumni. It tackles questions about their student experience, career options, industry expertise, or future plans. Thus, it offers unique insights into how a successful life and career can be achieved.

Additionally, many stories feature video content from the interviewees. Check out the video with Julian Steinbuch on the right and read his full story.

ESCP Europe is the first European business school, founded in 1819 in Paris. It has campuses in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Turin, and Warsaw and a total of 45000 alumni all over the world.

“There are two basic ways of founding a company which all comes down to a trade-off in between preparation and the stuff you have to give up.”

The Question

The reason for this project is a personal question that every student can relate to: What can I do after graduation?

The answer to this question includes factual knowledge of job opportunities and career paths. But also the reflection of one self regarding personal interests and strengths.

The experience of alumni who have already chosen their path can be invaluable in this process. You’re invited to learn and build on their experience with the help of their story.

Apart from answering the core question, the project reconnects alumni with students and among each other. It aims to energize the ESCP Europe network for a better exchange between different generations of students.
