Supporting the Next Generation


The aim of the European Shopping Centre Trust is to aid and support the attainment of professional education and help further the career development of the next generation of professionals. It does this through sponsorship of individual students through a number of recognised courses.

One of the main investments it has made over the last ten years is the financial support of students wishing to attend the highly respected annual International Council of Shopping Center (ICSC) European Retail Property School but who have been unable to secure funding elsewhere.

ESCT is independent, and does finance other educational initiatives, but supports ICSC’s annual European Retail Property School while no other, similar training courses exist across Europe dedicated to shopping centre management.
