For an open Europe: ESMT Berlin joins We’re for Europe initiative
ESMT Berlin has joined the economic initiative “We’re for Europe” to show solidarity for a unified and open Europe, thus supporting the European project.
The initiative, launched on the anniversary of the founding of the Council of Europe (May 5, 2017), demonstrates a clear commitment to Europe. It emphasizes the advantages of European integration that have ensured freedom and peace for decades. The founding companies and partners of the We’re for Europe initiative include renowned companies such as BMW, Deutsche Börse, and thyssenkrupp. Innogy Chairman Peter Terium, who is also a member of the ESMT Board of Trustees, initiated We’re for Europe.
Together with decision makers from leading German companies, ESMT is advocating the diversity of Europe and taking a stand against protectionism.
As a member of the Global Network for Advanced Management, ESMT also joined 28 other international business schools in February 2017 in the release of a statement advocating international exchange and protesting economic nationalism. With this joint declaration, the group emphasized that the challenges of the future could only be overcome with cooperation. With the support of global companies, the We’re for Europe initiative is pursuing a similar approach, and ESMT is underlining once again its commitment to the future of Europe.
