The United States of Europe are the natural consequence of the growth and development of a European consciousness. Being European doesn't mean to occupy a certain geographic area in Europe. > Being European means thinking as a European, living in a country with > European beliefs and traditions, and feeling as a European. > Being European is an inside out process which means to develop in each citizen a European consciousness - an inner sense of European patriotism - a conscious, eternal idea of a united nation called "Europe".
The high standards exemplified by our academic programmes are also reflected in our choice of ESE centre locations.
The European School of Economics’ centres are situated in some of the most beautiful settings that Europe: an ultra modern building in a desirable and sought after district of Milan; an amazing 19th century building with private gardens in the very heart of imperial Rome with an impressive view of the Caracalla Baths and close to the Colosseum; the Renaissance Palazzo Rosselli Del Turco in central Florence is just steps away from the Ponte Vecchio and in Madrid's city centre the campus is a picturesque building located in the prestigious Velazquez Street in the Barrio de Salamanca.
These settings complement the cosmopolitan atmosphere of our ESE centres and offer students a rich and stimulating environment in which to pursue their studies.
