The ESCP MBA in International Management: What You Need To Know

Ever wondered where the word “entrepreneur” comes from? The term was coined by someone named Jean-Baptiste Say, who was one of the founders of ESCP Business School back in 1819. Since then, the School has chosen to teach responsible leadership, open to the world and based on European multiculturalism.

What makes ESCP different — besides its pedigree — is the geographical spread it offers students. The school has six campuses — in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Turin, and Warsaw — and MBA students get to spend five-month semesters at two of them, with the chance for exchanges and electives at the others, including an associated campus in Luxembourg and the option of an elective in Beirut for those who take the Doing Business in the Middle East elective.

At 10 months this is about as short as an MBA gets, but a lot is packed in, including 500 teaching hours. As you’d expect, this is an international MBA; the most recent cohort consisted of 98 students representing 33 nationalities. Forty percent come from Europe, about the same from Asia; 14% hail from the Americas, and the remainder from the Middle East and African region. The 160 full-time faculty are similarly eclectic, being drawn from over 30 countries, while associate professors and professionals also teach classes. The 60,000-strong alumni network is spread over 150 countries, and students have access to them: at the start of their MBA, students can choose a mentor from that group, if they wish.

ESCP’s MBA students can choose four of 24 electives, which include many exciting options like Negotiation Dynamics, Creativity Marketing, International Capital Markets and Trading Techniques, and International Luxury Management, among others.

The MBA also has a career development program called I-LEAP, which aims to help students identify professional objectives, understand their career prospects, and give them advice, data, and tools to be successful. There are courses in Professional Self-Knowledge, Personal Career Growth, and Career Goal Setting, and students can use professional careers coaches to give them a boost.

For career-changers, a four- to six-month internship is available, and there are bootcamps on Consulting, Banking, Tech, and Marketing led by alumni on how to be recruited by the leading companies in these sectors. The school’s career service — which has a branch on each of the six campuses — offers coaching and workshops, company visits, and job fairs that attract 130+ companies per year. The school says it has access to a massive 50,000 internship and job opportunities each year.

Oliver Madden, MBA Class of 2019

“I did my undergraduate degree in Boston, then worked for several companies in the technology industry in the U.S. I wanted to develop in a structured way, so an MBA was the obvious choice. From a personal point of view, I wanted an adventure, too. I wanted to press pause on my career and reflect, but not for the full two years it takes to complete an American MBA. On the other hand, a part-time course couldn’t give me the depth I wanted. All in all, ESCP’s 10-month course was just right. I loved the idea of ESCP’s six campuses. I lived for five months each in Paris and London, did an elective in Turin, and then an exchange in Beirut.”

Gain significant consulting experience

In each semester, you will participate in an international consultancy project. These projects are supported by a faculty advisor and you will work highly autonomously on a real project for an international company. At the end of the semester, your consultancy group will present their findings and offer recommendations to the company directly. This project experience is repeated in semester two and you will leave the MBA program with significant consulting experience.
