School's mission

Getting involved

Our founding companies, foundations, friends, alumni, supporters, and volunteers comprise a strong network of partners crucial to the school’s development.

Building on excellence
ESMT Berlin was founded in 2002 by twenty-five leading German companies and associations to establish an international business school, based in Germany, with a distinct European focus.

Thanks to the generosity and vision of the school’s strong corporate network, ESMT has grown to become Germany's top-ranked business school.

In addition, the generosity of partners such as Deutsche Post DHL, Deutsche Telekom AG, EY, Ferrero, Karl-Heinz Kipp, KPMG, and Deutsche Lufthansa have strengthened teaching and educational programs at ESMT through Chaired Professorships.

Building for the future
Our initiatives for growth as a strong circle of ESMT Friends and Alumni further help us to excel and pave the way to a sustainable future for “the business school founded by business”.
