Louise Depuydt | ESSEC Global BBA | Concours Sésame Admission

Previous studies: French Baccalaureate

Spoken languages: French, English, Chinese, Spanish, learning Japanese


My name is Louise Depuydt and I’m a French student from Bordeaux but I’ve also lived in Lille and Shanghai in China, which has helped me develop an interest in both Asian and Western culture and has made me more open-minded.

I'm currently in my first year in the Global BBA program in Singapore. I obtained the French Baccalaureate with the OIB Britain since July 2019, and eventually decided to apply at ESSEC Business School.

I did my research and found what I was looking for - the exposure to different cultures and learning methods, the internationality as well as the diversity of the program. Most importantly, all the possibilities and opportunities were within easy reach like inter-campus exchanges, double degrees and the IBEA track. I'm also excited to know that I will gain a lot of experience and knowledge from ESSEC, with the internship at the end of the first year and social internship at the end of the second year.

There are also student associations groups/clubs for you to join and enjoy, or even start-up your own!

You can start in Singapore or France, but I chose the Singapore campus because it is fairly new, which meant more opportunities to develop myself and ESSEC. Also, Singapore is a dynamic multi-cultural hub, with both Asian and Western culture, which suited me well!

Since I'm a first year student, I will be happy to share with you about the application process, my arrival at ESSEC or anything you would like to know! Looking forward to speaking with you!
