We are proud of ESMT’s Responsible Leaders Fellows and the work they have done over the past 10 years, which is why we have nominated the fellowship for the Impact of Diversity's University Award 2022. 

The Responsible Leaders Fellowship provides our MBA and MIM graduates with the opportunity to apply business and management knowledge from their studies as a pro-bono service, assuming responsibility in institutions that meet social challenges in developing countries. The service lasts 4-6 months and is expected to create sustainable value for the employing organization. 


Congratulations to ESMT Executive MBA students Simona Catana and Carolina Parro on winning the International Leadership Association's Student Case Competition 2021! They represented the only European business school to make it to the finals. Their case investigated the reasons for a lack of women in senior leadership positions and what business schools can do to support the advancement of female managers.
