The ESCP Executive Committee expresses its deepest concerns regarding the invasion of our fellow European country, Ukraine, and is appalled by the attack.

Our thoughts are very much with Ukraine, its people, and our colleagues during this humanitarian crisis. As a society, we extend our support to our Ukrainian colleagues through these exceptionally challenging times.

We sincerely hope a peaceful solution can be swiftly found and we stand in solidarity with all those engaged in this crisis.
