In the latest research ranking of the Association for Information Systems, ESSEC ranks 3rd in Europe/Africa/Middle East in the number of publications in the six leading IS journals (“Basket of Six”) in the period from 2017 to 2021. Faculty in the IS group (with 10 full-time faculty) conduct research on a variety of topics, including:

  • Business impact of artificial intelligence and blockchain
  • Processes of IS change
  • IS design, implementation, and use

The IS group is committed to increase the number of women in scientific positions. Female candidates are therefore encouraged to apply.
