Friends of ESMT, is a membership organization dedicated to supporting ESMT Berlin and magnifying its social impact on a global scale. The organization is comprised of ESMT alumni, staff, faculty, recent graduates, parents of ESMT students and graduates, and a further group of supporters around the world, including several world-renowned organizations, that identify with ESMT’s vision of responsible leadership.
The generosity of our members, expressed through annual subscriptions, forms the cornerstone of our impactful endeavors. Through financial contributions, we empower a diverse range of social impact initiatives led by ESMT community members. We currently hold a longstanding endowment, returns from which are used to provide unrestricted financial support, directly to the school itself.
Friends of ESMT was formally established in 2011. It emerged as the successor to the "Verein zur Förderung des Universitätsseminars der Wirtschaft e.V.", which was founded in 1968 at ESMT’s former Schloss Gracht campus.
In addition to providing meaningful impact via their membership contribution, members are invited to all ESMT public events, attend the annual members' meeting on our Berlin campus, and join the exclusive ESMT Friends Annual New Year’s reception hosted by our ESMT President, Jörg Rocholl.
Embrace the opportunity to become a member and contribute to our impactful community. 100% of your membership fee goes directly towards supporting social impact initiatives.
