issues. It does this by organizing conferences, talks, workshops and public lectures and by
conducting studies on issues, either on its own or in partnership with other organizations.
The objectives of ESS are to raise public awareness on Economic issues and to stimulate public
interest in Economics, to encourage discussion on Economic problems with special reference

decision-making, and weighing economic challenges against the social costs are some of
the objectives ESSEC has set for itself. Its ultimate goal? To create a global world that has
meaning for us all. The Asia-Pacific campus, strategically located in Singapore, represents the perfect foothold
for ESSEC Business School to be part of the vibrant growth of Asia and to share its expertise
in the fast-growing region.
