Who we are
The Friends of ESMT is membership organization currently consisting of over 50 individuals and 30 companies.
We are alumni, staff, faculty, recent graduates, parents of our students and graduates, and a further group of supporters around the world, including a number of world-renowned organizations, who identify with ESMT’s vision of responsible leadership.
The organization provides financial backing to ESMT projects through the proceeds of its membership contributions. It also currently holds a longstanding endowment, returns from which are used to provide unrestricted financial support, directly to the school itself.
The 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 on ESMT’s former Schloss Gracht campus.

In addition to providing meaningful impact via their membership contribution, members of the Friends of ESMT are invited to all public events run by ESMT, to an annual members' meeting on the ESMT Berlin campus, and to an exclusive ESMT Friends Annual New Year’s reception hosted by ESMT’s President.
