La Defense


The goal of the three ESSEC campuses is to provide students with an exceptional learning environment equipped with cutting-edge digital technology while fostering a sense of community.

Paris - La Défense

Studying at ESSEC’s Paris-La Défense campus is a great way to boost your skills by combining professional experience and coursework. Because your time is limited, this campus – located within the famous CNIT building – was designed with efficiency in mind.
Located in the heart of the La Défense business district, the ESSEC CNIT campus is easy to reach from Paris and its suburbs, Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport, other cities in France or abroad, thanks to an efficient public transportation network.


ESSEC’s La Défense campus offers computer rooms (equipped with internet connection and printers) where students can meet for group work or to fine-tune a presentation. The cafeteria is open all day, offering a selection of teas, coffee and snacks free of charge. For your lunch break, choose from dining options offering a wide range of cuisines located within minutes of the campus.
The Atrium, a spacious gathering area, is located at the center of campus.  It is the perfect place to sit down with and enjoy one of the French or English-language business newspapers made available on a daily basis. With its comfortable furnishings and contemporary paintings, it is also an inviting lounge area for chatting or studying with classmates.
