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 key European cities — in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Turin, and Warsaw — and MBA students get to choose and spend five-month semesters at any 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 71 students representing 24 nationalities. Forty one percent come from Europe, 31% from Asia; 23% hail from the Americas, and the remainder from the Middle East and African region. The 165 full-time faculty are similarly eclectic, being drawn from over 33 countries, while associate professors and professionals also teach classes. The 68,000-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.

STUDENT VIEW:

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.”

Diego Romero, MBA Class of 2021

“I’m originally from Colombia, but have been living in the United States for a long time. I’m an engineer by academic training and had been working in the government sector prior to this program. I chose to pursue study in Europe and this MBA specifically because I wanted to further increase my business acumen, gain exposure to management and grow my entrepreneurial interest. Living in Paris and in Madrid has been great for me as I have submerged myself in both cultures and moving forward I will be able to leverage the European ways of doing business along with my previous experience.”
